Welcome to the CBIG site!

The Charlotte BI Group, or CBIG as we like to call ourselves, is a technical user group focused on Business Intelligence topics.  

As a member, you will learn about Business Intelligence best practices, recommended architectures, design patterns, development platforms and techniques, as well as administration and configuration topics with an emphasis on the Microsoft BI stack and related toolsets.  From time to time we'll also cover other important BI skills such as business analysis, requirements gathering methodologies, usability, and testing. 

Our meetings will approach learning in a casual, fun and social way.  You'll be given opportunities to get to know fellow BI, SQL Server, and Analyst professionals in the area.  We'll also do our best to keep you informed about regional events & happenings in the technical community.

Be sure to visit the Join CBIG page to receive invitations to monthly CBIG meetings and special events!
