Many organisations today have invested heavily in ERP or transactional systems to run their day-to-day activities. However, now there seems to be a lot of data available, but still it proves to be difficult to extract the information there is needed to make well informed decisions. The problem lies in the transformation of data into user-friendly reports that provide exactly the information needed to manage their business.
This is where BI, or Business Intelligence, comes in. BI will gather, organize, aggregate, combine and present your data into reports. BI therefore has a strong technical focus. But it should be clear that the ICT component alone is only a part of the solution. In any BI project, involvement of the business and the management is crucial. There is also an organisational component many companies struggle with and leaves questions such as: Who has the responsibility of a report? Who decides when and what report should be developed? Should the organisation be centralized, decentralized or a hybrid model? Etc…
CIO’s are faced with these issues on a daily basis, and on top of that the market is changing rapidly, with “emerging” technologies such as Mobile and Cloud, and new project methodology like Agile BI.
