Business intelligence

These essential steps of business intelligence include but are not limited to:

A recent CIO survey showed that business intelligence (BI) applications were the highest technology priority. Only SAS Business Intelligence integrates data from across your enterprise and provides self-service reporting and analysis at everyone’s fingertips, so decision makers spend less time looking for answers and more time driving strategic decisions. Though the term business intelligence is sometimes a synonym for competitive intelligence (because they both support decision making), BI uses technologies, processes, and applications to analyze mostly internal, structured data and business processes while competitive intelligence gathers, analyzes and disseminates information with a topical focus on company competitors. SAS software, together with the SAS Business Analytics Centers of Excellence service offerings, provides the infrastructure and best practices to help you optimize and control your information assets. This makes it easier to share consistent, holistic views of the business and enhances decision-making abilities. More importantly, they’re for your people—connecting them with each other and to the exact information they need to be most effective.Simply put, you get to see more clearly into how your company is performing. Active Enterprise Intelligence, the executive and industry consultant view of business benefits derived when a single data warehouse provides both strategic and operational intelligence, has a positive impact on the quality of decision making throughout the enterprise.
