Its about Proactively and Exception Management for your computers and peripherals.
We’d probably all agree that we’re inundated by information throughout the day that impacts how we make decisions, steers our individual goals, our work across our teams, even impacting the overall results our company is able to achieve.
Whereas a few years back the challenge was that we didn’t have the capability to get to the information—the tools were rudimentary, there were not enough data connections, the bandwidth was not there, etc., today’s challenge is that it’s everywhere you look, we have too much access, it’s in too many places, and now it’s hard to corral it all in time to help us in our jobs.
The challenge for organizations, teams, and individuals today is to find a way to harness the power of this information to make it work our advantage. And that’s where BI comes into play. When you use BI you get better results throughout your organization.
