Swiss BI-Day 2014

2014 is the launch year of the annual Swiss BI-Day event and the related presentation of

the Swiss BI-Award. As the name suggests, the Swiss BI-Day event focuses on professionals
from Switzerland. Its target group is professionals in the fields of Data Warehousing and Business
Intelligence, information managers and IT managers as well as everyone who wants to know more
about what is happening in the world of data and information. The aim of Swiss BI Day is to give
participants the opportunity to share knowledge and more specifically, to network; to establish
new contacts and revitalize existing ones. Moreover, Swiss BI-Day is the occasion on which
the Swiss BI-Award is presented to the best BI project that has been set up and implemented.
An expert jury assesses the submitted projects and announces the winner.


Swiss BI-Day is proud to present a host of speakers from at home and abroad. Based on
the outcomes of a survey on LinkedIn, we have decided on a broad spectrum of speakers and
topics for the first edition.
