Abstract: This paper reports on the use of QlikView business intelligence software for use in a Business Intelligence (BI) course within an undergraduate information systems program. The course provides students with concepts related to data warehousing, data mining, visualizations, and software tools to provide business intelligence solutions for decision making. The goal of the course is to balance both the technical and business skills students require when using business intelligence systems. Specific use of the software QlikView is outlined through an experiential project whereby students obtain, model, analyze, and interpret publicly accessible airline data. QlikView is a leading business intelligence software package that allows users to import data from a variety of sources to create visualization-based dashboards for reporting and analysis. The use of QlikView in this course addresses common challenges with using commercially available software in the classroom.
