    Who Are Business Authors?

    Typically the Business Author is an analyst or subject matter expert that regularly needs access to enterprise data

    Business Authors are generally technically capable, but not necessarily technicians

    Their focus is to derive insight from data in order to support critical business analysis Understand what happened, why it happened, and how to do

    things better the next time

    Often times the skills required to extract the data are limited to IT team members, but

    The demand for that data continues to grow
