When BI is Done Well
Business Intelligence (BI) solutions have provided businesses and organizations unprecedented insight into their operations and into their customers. These metrics have given everyone from C-level executives to on-the-ground employees the insight required to run a more profitable company on an organizational scale.
But it’d be a mistake to assume or infer that BI is a flawless solution for the data-driven company. Afterall, BI is limited in its effectiveness in one crucial way - its usefulness is directly related to the accuracy of the data it displays. In fact, incorrect, incomplete, or missing data can reduce even the most powerful BI tool to a dashboard with lots of color, but very little value.
