Business Intelligence Software: The Importance of Getting the Right Information at the Right Time

Today’s businesses thrive on data. And trust me, there is an endless variety of data for them to gobble up and digest all in the name of maintaining the highest level of business intelligence possible. There are examples of data that would include things like: who sold what products, who bought what products, who makes the products, how much the products cost to make, what customers think of the products. The list can go on forever. All of this and so much more are typically shoved into numerous databases of one form or another, and all of which are usually scattered throughout the corporate infrastructure and sometimes throughout the globe. Therein lies the problem. How do you go about getting all of this information from all of these different places? If you ask me, the real definition of business intelligence is having the right data at the right time. This is crucial to making the right business decisions for any company. Having the ability to gather up all of the critical information from its various storage points and ultimately put it into a format that you can effectively use.

As if that weren’t enough, having the ability to get it when you want it is yet another need. These are the main things that any corporation would want from a business intelligence software package. Sure, there are usually some standard reports included with most office oriented software, but are they really useful? Are they flexible enough to adapt to your company’s individual needs? Do they provide the custom views and analysis of your company’s data that you ultimately need? Chances are they do not. And chances are, in order to even get remotely close to your reporting goal, you will have to run a vast number of these reports on the vast number of your systems. Of course, then you still have to make yet another report out of the Everest sized pile of reports you just created. This is obviously not very efficient, and truly has the potential to put your company behind the ball in this fast paced business world.
