Guides to Business Intelligence and Business Performance Management

Not quite sure what online analytical processing (OLAP) cubes, dashboards, and data mining and warehousing are? Or exactly why you should care? They're all components of business intelligence (BI) software—indispensable if you want to make faster, better business decisions. In this guide to BI, you'll find out what it's all about, how it works, and how BI can help you stay competitive in today's fierce, take-no-prisoners economy.

Because BI and business performance management (BPM) are so closely related, you may be unsure of the differences between them. In this straightforward guide to BPM, you'll learn more about BPM's components, how they link up, and the way in which this business-oriented application of BI can optimize business performance and help drive corporate strategy.

An ERP system alone will not deliver significant return on investment (ROI), as many midsized businesses are learning the hard way. The real ROI comes from employing a BI solution that allows you to use your ERP data in a meaningful way. Here's a look at five building blocks you need to have in place so that your BI deployment is both successful and profitable.
