Some knowledge of Business Analytics is preferred but not required.

Though not a requirement, attendees would benefit from taking Business Analytics User Console (BA1000) prior to taking this class to gain an overview of the Pentaho Business Analytics interface.

Online courses require a broadband Internet connection, the use of a modern Web browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox), and the ability to connect to GoToTraining. For more information on GoToTraining requirements, see
