Improved business intelligence (BI) tools provide organizations with new opportunities to capture performance benefits. Effective use of BI helps organizations transform raw data into actionable information and competitive advantage. But defining and executing the BI vision provides some challenges.
Organizations can be effective by matching their needs and pain points to mature technology tools on a just-in-time basis. And they must execute incrementally against a time-based road map. This new thinking to a practical approach works for organizations regardless of where they are on the BI maturity continuum. Executing BI within a business oriented vision and a broader enterprise information management framework can set companies apart from their competitors.
