Why Business Intelligence

In our DW projects we have seen quiet a few benefits of of proper Business Intelligence applications. Amongst all, BI implementations empower internal stakeholders which in turn increases operational efficiency. The enhanced decision making process allows companies to move from a reactionary state into a proactive position; unlocking new revenue streams, mitigating challenges from rivals, and staying ahead curve. 

 

BI Tools

There are a broad set of data analysis apps that includes ad hoc report writing and querying

  • Enterprise Reporting
  • OLAP Cubes
  • Real-time BI
  • Mobile BI
  • Cloud and software BI
  • Open Source etc.

This technology also revolves around designing charts, dashboards, & scorecards which helps defining data on visual metrics. The tools involved in data display and interactive visuals are where BI has moved too. 

  • Power BI and Tableau are perfect example of how powerful visuals can transform the data itself

BI also include advance analytics like

  • Data Mining
  • Text mining
  • Big Data 

Advanced analytics is performed by data scientist, which use DataWarehouse or data marts to extract data from and analyze and extrapolate. 

BI architecture is also moving to unstructured repositories, like Hadoop, especially in the Big Data realm.   

Any and all data used downstream by BI applications must be integrated (if coming from multiple sources), migrated, and cleansed before any analyses can be performed.  This is why it's paramount that the correct industry practices are applied upfront to the BI architecture so that integrity is preserved throughout all stages from ODS/Data lakes through staging and final warehouse schemas.
