Business Intelligence: The Definitive Guide for Midsize Organizations
Business intelligence (BI) allows organizations to better understand, analyze, and even predict what's occurring in their company. BI helps your organization turn data into useful and meaningful information and then distributes this information to those who need it, when they need it - thereby enabling them to make timely and better-informed decisions. It allows organizations to combine data from a wide variety of sources and see an integrated, up-to-date, 360-degree view.
BI allows business users to analyze and better understand their organization's plans and results. It provides insight into what's working correctly - and highlights potential opportunities - while identifying problem areas in time to take corrective actions.
