Business Intelligence Strategy - InetSoft CEO joins a discussion of business intelligence strategy. If you look at what BI vendors focused initially with their business intelligence tools, they were primarily focused on query and reporting to understand what happened in the past. The second generation of business intelligence solutions evolved into more visual analysis capabilities and data mining to understand why things happened and make recommendations for future action. But the next generation of business intelligence platforms is about making all information, all relevant information, available and to optimize each transaction. Whether it’s in the call center or in the field, whether you’re assisting a customer with a specific issue, taking an order or processing a claim. It’s about making information available to leverage for your business activities and business processes. And of course, as everyone has pointed out, that necessitates a tight integration between your BPM environments which are managing your processes across the organization and your business intelligence services...

Business Intelligence System Is Like a Refinery - Well, a business intelligence system is like a refinery. Its raw material is data which it gets from transaction systems or operational systems which run the business on a daily business. And IT professionals take that data. They integrate it, aggregate it and turn it into information via a data warehouse. And then analysts and managers using varying reporting tools access the information in the warehouse to identify issues and trends and patterns in that information and essentially create knowledge, knowledge about how the business works. Then executives and managers take that knowledge, and they create rules and models or plans, such as a go to market plan. And when they implement those plans, they generate events, and this virtuous cycle repeats itself over and over again. And each time you go through this loop, you review and measure your success. That’s an analogy for business intelligence that should resonate with you in the audience. I think one of the things we’re seeing is that people are trying to speed up that whole process. They want to simplify getting the data all the way to the desktop for the users to use it. And how can they get more information faster in the right context through that whole process...

Business Intelligence System Tips - This article discusses tips for making business intelligence system deployments more successful. In the past companies deployed expensive BI solutions just to say they have them, but they were not designed with the business end user in mind. Focusing on making the software intuitive to use and getting it widely adopted by the business people who need information to make the best decisions is what it takes to make BI projects successful. In the early days of business intelligence, the technology assembled historical data, presented it in forms such as reports, dashboards and scorecards, and made it analyzable; the software was then given to analytical staff and senior executives so they could access information they required to set the strategic course of their business . Over time, users saw that they might apply BI’s data warehousing, visualization and analytical capabilities to their operational needs and started using the technology to help managers make tactical decisions about their business units. It soon became clear that the data requirements of this new business intelligence software were different from those of old BI, and it became clear as well that it required different visualization and analytic tools. These differences were a challenge to most companies. Those challenges are discuss in this article, and tips are offered on how new business intelligence technology can meet them for your organization...

Business Intelligence Suites - Business intelligence suite provider InetSoft joins a BI podcast. They are looking to, as I said before, put the processes in context. The second approach we find is that they are putting a BPM, a process strategy in place. The follow-on to that is sometimes the business intelligence strategy. So we find them coming from each side of the coin. Now the important thing that we have seen with our customers is that the reality for them is that the process improvement aspect – whether they are coming at it from the process improvement side to begin with, or they already have the BI solution in place, and now they’re trying to put them in context – is that a lot of those projects are stalled by the legacy of past failed projects, the lack of concrete requirements, especially from business owners. Someone mentioned before that lack of collaboration between IT and business to get accurate requirements in place in a quick manner to adjust to changing business conditions. Now we’re seeing, as always, IT budgets aren’t getting bigger. They’re getting smaller, and folks are naturally defaulting to their existing systems and infrastructure for their new projects...
