Business Intelligence & Big Data
The Business intelligence era has seen many businesses use technology to create value for customers while optimizing profits. Those benefits have included increased efficiencies, real-time process measurement, and the ability to make decisions based on data. While quantitative departments like finance and operations have so far enjoyed the greatest advantages to date, there are still significant opportunities for BI investments to create value for most firms.
Today traditional BI systems are only part of the story. Each second of every day technology creates, captures, and catalogues an amount of data so great the human mind literally cannot properly contemplate it. 90% of the world’s data was created or captured in just the last two years. 80% of that data is unstructured, coming from images, videos, tweets, posts, e-mails or the ‘internet of things.’ The challenge is clear: how do we use all this data—and integrate it with our existing systems—to make better decisions faster? With so much new information being generated, there’s the risk that useful insight becomes scarce.
The ideal business intelligence solution synthesizes all of this data from new and old systems and sources into something that’s more than the sum of its bits. The result is a system that facilitates informed conversations by allowing decision-makers to interrogate information and respond to the market sooner and smarter.
Sounds great, but such systems don’t come pre-packaged. Simply capturing the data isn’t enough. Every solution needs to be customized to the needs of its users and the reality of their organization.
