Give Users Fresh, NOT Packaged Data!

Fresh vs. Packaged Data? No Contest

Fresh Business Intelligence Data is Key to Confident Decisions.

Here’s what I know about Business Intelligence: Old or incomplete information does not constitute intelligence – what it does is to result in decisions that are sometimes wrong and nearly always misleading. When we provide a business intelligence tool that ties the hands of business users; when we give business users tools and dashboards that are designed by IT or analysts and assume comprehensive knowledge of user needs, we give our business users the wrong kind of tools!

Social BI Tools: Get Social and Get Successful!

Social BI Tools: Get Social and Get Successful!Social networks and social media have exploded. It is everywhere and it affects our lives in ways we could never have predicted. Every aspect of modern life involves sharing and social interaction, and Business Intelligence should be no exception. Imagine an environment where business users can access BI tools and a data analysis portal as a social business intelligence tool that would allow them to see and share popular data and to rate and comment on that data and reporting. That sharing can optimize resources and allow users to access reports, dashboards and data that might be just what they need to complete a task or analysis. When you implement social media and social networking within the Business Intelligence environment business users can share, rate, discuss and learn from others.

Data Democracy Encourages Social BI and Creates Citizen Data Scientists

ejbi-blog-aprilDemocracy is a great thing! The more involved people are, the more they understand, the better decisions they can make for themselves and for everyone else AND they can make a better contribution as well. Data Democratization works the same way. In years past, businesses thought that only senior management needed to understand the strategy and direction of the company but employees and team members lacked the knowledge to make the right decisions and become a great asset to the organization.
