Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

Real-Time Versus "Right-Time" Decision Making: A New Competitive Advantage


In this day and age, the ability for a company to utilize information quickly and effectively is more important than ever before. But faster access to increasingly large amounts of data doesn’t always mean that good real-time decisions are being made.

Selecting and sorting information into what’s vital to decision making and what isn’t allows for better decision making to occur.

The data then has to land in the right hands in order for the right actions to be implemented. Quality, real-time data has to be accessible at the right time, in the hands of the right people.

In this white paper, learn what right-time decision making is and how to use analytics to your benefit, e.g., to test hypothetical choices before implementation. Get information on how to create strong data governance to support high quality data, investigate analytical tools for problem-solving, and learn how the delivery of information to decision makers can affect your business choices positively or negatively.
