Business Intelligence Importance

The 21st century is recognized as the age of information technology because the amount of data generated every second is huge, so the ability to transform it into business insights and understandable information in a easy and quick way has become a key to success of any organization. And we all know that the real power it's not in the data and information itself, the key lies in changing those Petabytes of data in some valuable insights for your company - here lies the power of using business intelligence.

But what exactly is business intelligence? A very short but the most appropriate definition for BI is: “Business Intelligence is basically timely, accurate as well as actionable insight of business. It also includes the work processes and technologies which are used to obtain these insights.”

If BI is so important, why every company in the world is not leveraging it? One of the problems you might relate with lies in using separate tools and technology suppliers. Each of them with its own contracts, pricing, expertise and integration needs. This greatly increases complexity and costs, while lowering team productivity, since a significant amount of resources is focused on managing those tools separately.
