For value-adding business intelligence, it’s important to keep in mind three perspectives for developing, using and managing BI: technology/data, strategy and organization/culture.
Providing reliable data is a basic prerequisite for your BI platform. This lets your company focus on insights instead of getting tied down in discussions over whose figures are correct. But while your data should be consistent, you need technology that offers the possibility of different interfaces for different types of users. Your employees’ access to information should be adaptable to their unique roles.
With reliable data, BI can offer your company a powerful tool to realize a strategy by revealing the behavioral patterns that contribute to the results you want for your business. Put simply, effective BI measures what’s important for your company and helps you do it properly.
Integrating your BI approach into the organization and culture of your company can actually influence the actions of your employees to produce positive results. This means translating your strategy into measurable goals that you can simply and smoothly communicate to every member of your organization. By making BI part of your culture, you turn strategy into reality
