Business Intelligence Solutions
BI allows companies to oversee daily business activities, and provides effective tools for making decisions and preparing future plans. BI emphasizes the power of the information you can get from data you already have about your business processes ( e.g. sales, marketing, finance, call centre, manufacture, employee performance etc.) Additionally BI gives you the ability to use and combine this data with data from outer sources.
From a user perspective BI can provide the following facilities:
• Standard reporting
• Business data analysis
• Business planning support
The above facilities have no clear dividing lines. They usually overlap and it is a matter of business purpose how to combine them to get the best value for business users.
