What is Business Intelligence?

The term "business intelligence" (BI) includes a wide range of applications, practices and technologies for the extraction, translation, integration, analysis and presentation of data in order to support improved decision making. It is important to note that Business Intelligence goes beyond technology. BI is the process of people, practices and technologies coming together so that organizations can make better decisions on a day-to-day basis.

Business Intelligence: Getting Started

BI tools frequently use data stored in a data warehouse or data mart. XTIVIA has a proven track record of helping our customers build the right data warehouse architecture so that they can deliver mission-critical information to their stakeholders on time. If you are new to BI, our streamlined assessment solutions may be most relevant to you. This process will help you to take stock of your company’s current data situation, then create an easy-to-follow road map to take your enterprise to the next level. If you have already assessed your current situation, XTIVIA can step in at this juncture to ensure that you’re taking the right steps to realize better value from your technology investments. Data governance is also a key practice area that is critical to the success of a BI program. With our data governance solutions, you can ensure the success of your BI program.

Organizational Change Management: Every BI program forces an organization to weather a certain amount of change. XTIVIA can help you manage the process to ensure minimal disruption and maximum buy-in at all levels.
