HOW INTELLIGENT IS YOUR BUSINESS?

THE PHENOMENON "BI" IN EVERYDAY LIFE. HOW ARE DECISIONS INFLUENCED, MADE OR EVEN OMITTED?

According to the definition of BARC*, we understand Business Intelligence as a system, a technology, a process, which is intended to make it easier for the decision makers of a company to manage the present and future business on the basis of provided and qualified information. In the final stage of development we are confronted with highly complex system architectures (ETL processes, warehouse databases, multidimensional analysis, reporting and planning systems). In the simpler structural concept, coordinated partial solutions dominate. How do medium-sized companies - companies that do not have the necessary resources and know-how - cope with this? What can be observed again and again in the field of controlling? How are BI decisions made, how are they influenced and why are they omitted?
