Business intelligence (BI) is a technology-driven process for analyzing data and presenting actionable information to help corporate executives, business managers and other end users make more informed business decisions. BI encompasses a variety of tools, applications and methodologies that enable organizations to collect data from internal systems and external sources, prepare it for analysis, develop and run queries against the data, and create reports, dashboards and data visualizations to make the analytical results available to corporate decision makers as well as operational workers.
Executive Dashboards and Scorecards
Executive Dashboards and scorecards provide senior executives access to key internal and external business information to assist in the decision making process in an organization. These goal of these systems is to simplify the process of monitoring key business drivers which will help identify problems and opportunities within the business.
