BCE through the staff of the Brisbane Catholic Education Centre has five main areas of responsibility, namely, catechetics, education, administration and management, leadership, and accountability. For effective functioning of these areas of responsibility, it needed a comprehensive Business Intelligence solution.

BICG is developing a solution by utilizing the following technologies:
– Integration Services
– Reporting Services
– Analysis Services (Class and Tabular Modelling)
– Javascript/Client development
