July 2013 Meeting

MSBIC is a community focused on promoting the discipline of Business Intelligence as a whole, for individuals that share a common goal of leveraging analytics to make better business decisions. Our mission is to foster a community that bridges the gap between technologists and business information consumers. We feel both groups should share an interest in leveraging their technology investments to optimize business performance.

Opening Presentation:

Microsoft BI Gamification

Kevin Mintmier, Solution Architect, Data Management Slalom Consulting

Gamification is the use of game thinking and mechanics in a non-game context. This concept is gaining traction in the workplace as a way to enhance learning and increase participation in business processes. It’s been shown to improve user engagement, data quality, timeliness and ROI. In this session, we will discuss the intent, merits and challenges of gamifying your workplace using the Microsoft BI stack.
