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.
