With the acquisition, Claraview, a business intelligence consultancy, seeks to boost its data warehousing training expertise.Claraview, the business intelligence consultancy that has provided BI systems to the likes of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Education, is expanding its educational capabilities.
The company announced Jan. 23 the acquisition of HandsOn-BI, which provides BI and data warehousing architecture, planning and design services. The terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Hands-On BI maintains a repository of TDWI training courses, materials and best practices expertise, officials said.
