About BI Academy
The BI Academy was initialy funded in 2015 by a German federal state foundation (Landesstiftung Baden-Württemberg) in order to enable students to get a better understanding about Business Analytics. The BI Academy is legaly hosted at the Stuttgart Media University (Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart). We are a non-profit state university.
We provide free access for universities to a Microsoft SQL Server database with actual data about a bicycle company and hands-ons labs about various topics from Business Intelligence.
Our hands-ons labs are based on the Microsoft Business Intelligence stack. This includes Microsoft Excel with PowerPivot, SQL Server Analysis Services, Integration Services, Reporting Services and Power BI. Our materials also run perfect on Microsoft Azure.
We have chosen Microsoft, because a) it’s free – the software usage is covered by the MSNAA program, b) it’s easy to use – we can concentrate on the content and not on “how-to-use-the-software” and c) we believe – it’s good stuff!
