itelligence Director of the Business Intelligence Practice Cris Hadjez was recently featured in Information Management – “Meet Business Demands by Making Business Intelligence Effective and Relevant” – spotlighting the importance of taking a holistic approach to Business Intelligence (BI) as organizations seek to optimize data feedback and operational demands.
At its core, the goal of BI is to leverage data insights to help businesses run better. Cris points out how businesses can go beyond just data collection to create a BI strategy that extracts maximum value from the analysis allowing users to benefit from the analytical processes. Simply put, a strong BI strategy generates new insight into how a business can operate more effectively through useful data analysis that ensures companies make smarter business-critical decisions.
Some additional key points from this piece include the importance of a user-friendly experience to ensure that business users are engaged with BI tools. Additionally, these tools provide accessible functionality that does not require specialized IT support to keep systems secure, reliable and high-performing. Cris also highlights that BI solutions can be customized for all businesses – small and large –ranging from pre-packaged data marts to one-of-a-kind processes that meet specific analytical and reporting needs.
