Modern Business Intelligence - Design and Implementations


Published on

During the first two “waves” of business intelligence, IT professionals and business analysts were the keepers of BI. They made BI accessible and consumable for end users.

While this approach still applies to complex business intelligence needs, today there is a new “wave.” This third wave of BI makes BI available to every kind of user.

As customer strive to take advantage of the digital transformation that is occurring in virtually every industry, they need to re-evaluate how they engage with their customers/prospects, how they transform their products and operations, and how they empower and understand their employees.
In today’s world, doing each of these things is more and more reliant upon data…traditionally, everything you knew about your customers and prospects was available in your business application systems and in the heads of employees. You learned almost everything about your products BEFORE they left your warehouse. Employees used technology more to enter data than to learn from it.
In the data-driven world we live in today, leveraging intelligent insights from data across customers, products, and employees is critical to be able to stay competitive and keep up with or lead digital transformation in any industry. And this isn’t just a customer’s typical business application data – it’s also about augmenting the customer’s data with additional data (e.g. search, employee behavioral data, sentiment data, benchmark data, etc..) – and applying the right intelligence to drive meaningful insights.

Sharing data across systems requires each system to understand the location, structure and meaning of the data. Business data has no structural or semantic consistency Different applications, departments, and analysts define data in different ways, which makes data exploration, and reuse of data and apps extremely challenging. Right data for the right users at the right time Different roles have different need and business users need the latest operational data Silos Employee doesn’t know how to create or share reports and use different tools and create inconsistency
