With the economy in such an uncertain state, it is more important than ever that businesses optimise all inventory, spending, staffing, resources and critical decisions.

Businesses can use Business Intelligence (BI) to improve decision making, cut costs and identify new business opportunities. It is more than just corporate reporting and more than a set of tools to retrieve information from enterprise systems. Efficient businesses use BI to identify inefficient business processes that are candidates for re-engineering.

Today's Business Intelligence tools allow end users to start analyzing data themselves, instead of waiting for the IT department to run complex reports. This easily accessed data puts the power back in the hands of businesses users to make informed decisions.

  • An understanding of the features of a good Business Intelligence solution
  • An in depth understanding of how key features of Business Intelligence can enhance business processes
