Avoid costly mistakes and apprehensions right from the start - use business intelligence

Every organization collects data over time.  What most organizations now realize is that the data they have now could easily help them save money or make sound business decisions at a later time.  It can also help them be more compliant with rules and regulations in their industry and set the stage for a more efficient operation.

This is the reason why business intelligence is a big thing nowadays.  But just what is business intelligence?

Business Intelligence Defined

Forrester Research defines business intelligence as the processes, systems, technologies, architectures and methodologies that help you make sense of raw data and get useful and meaningful information from it.  You can get insights about your business and operations, as well as help you with decision-making.

All of these have their applications in the enterprise.  When it comes to enterprise business intelligence, there is good news and bad news.

The good news is that you do not have to contend with the numbers yourself.  While it is true that you would most likely be dealing with large sets of data, you will have access to tools and software that will make your life a whole lot easier.  You can have tools that will make your data a whole lot more accessible to users.  You can also have tools that would immediately make data easier to understand and easier to interpret.  And you can even get the tools to make data available even in real time.

The Challenges of Enterprise Business Intelligence

However, these tools, software and infrastructure might not be that simple to learn and master.

In fact, done wrong, enterprise business intelligence can easily take your operations down, leading to bad decisions, difficult regulatory compliance, inefficient operations and inaccurate data.

If you are going to do it alone or in-house, you would need to fully understand how data works, how to create efficient infrastructure for your data, and have a thorough understanding of data marts, data warehouses, multifaceted analysis and reporting tools.  You will also need to be an expert in data mining applications.

On top of that, you would need to wrap your mind around every tools.  Furthermore, you would need to make sure that the quality of your data is top-notch.

Admittedly, that is too much for a small to medium-sized business to handle.  Even bigger companies with a robust IT department would have a difficult time starting out.
