The goal of Business Intelligence is to turn Data into information that is useful to the organization. It is a business strategy that integrates and analyzes operational data from all business functions in an enterprise. BI enables your organization to quickly access, analyze and share information in order to assess business performance, improve decision-making, predict outcomes and ultimately increase profitability.
The best BI solutions allow you to turn a vast array of data into valuable information that drives decision-making in your corporation. They ensure that all your data has clear definitions and a fully understandable presentation to users.
