Business Intelligence & Analytics

Business intelligence and analytics are essential to modern data-driven businesses. BI is core competency of smart business. BI connects people with data and information, making it possible for decision-makers to access, analyze, and act on information. Business Analytics is the science of finding insight in data – exploring data to find patterns and interpreting the patterns to gain knowledge and understanding.

Everyone in business management today has an interest in BI and analytics to guide strategy, implement tactics, and support day-to-day execution and operation. BI enables business capabilities for measurement, monitoring, and tracking with tools such as dashboards and scorecards. Analytics encompasses a wide range of analysis goals including descriptive, discovery, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive analytics.

Working together, BI and analytics answer a broad range of business questions from what has happened, to why does it happen, what does the future hold, and what should we do. BI and Analytics is a multi-disciplinary field that demands attention to dimensions of technology, data, people, and organizational culture. Putting the pieces together in the right ways – building, operating, using, and evolving BI systems – is a complex undertaking that involves many people and many skills.
