One of the most basic functions of any BI software is analytics, and the type of analytics required for a company depends on its goals. Data analytics helps companies describe their businesses, look at reasons why positive or negative things have happened, generate the information they may not have, and advise on possible action plans to take.
BI tools enable companies to perform these types of analyses, monitor key performance indicators (KPIs), and generate accurate reports. With the help of these tools, analysts can convert insights into action. BI software tools can also give companies a competitive edge over its competitors by analyzing market trends, shining a light on new opportunities, and developing new strategies. These tools can help organizations understand their client needs and optimize the services offered, from B2B to B2C. The same tools can also be used internally to monitor employee productivity in real-time.
Business Intelligence acts as the foundation of any long term and short term business strategy. It is used as a catch-all phrase as it does not apply to any specific type of analysis. BI tools and processes are used to draw insights from raw data to aid in business decision making. Organizations make use of this data to get ahead of competitors and optimize overall performance. These tools are essential for most BI analysts, but there is also a range of BI tools available that can help employees from a variety of departments.
Some of the BI software can also be integrated with tools for individual business verticals like retail, travel, and media services. BI reporting and BI analytics can help these users find solutions to empower their day-to-day business, using dashboards, complex analytical processing, and powerful visualizations. The process also represents a vital part of business intelligence because it helps executives make timely, data-supported decisions.
