Business Intelligence (BI)
Data visualization is the key objective of Business Intelligence (BI) and Advanced Analytics solutions. The BI and Advanced Analytics technologies today are able to provide data visualization that goes beyond the provision of reports and dashboards. This is possible because these technologies come with tools that use sophisticated modeling techniques to predict future events or discover patterns which cannot be detected otherwise. With such tools businesses/organizations today are not only able to focus on business intelligence which helps to measure their past performance and guide business planning but they are also able to go beyond that and analyze their data to answer questions including “Why is this happening?”, “What if these trends continue?”, “What will happen next?”, (prediction), “What is the best that can happen?” (Optimization). This ability helps uncover deep insights that yield measurable business impact and which (insights) the organization may not have imagined before.
Many organizations around the world are using these capabilities to mine deep insights from structured data resident in the databases of their internal business and operational systems as well as unstructured data (big data) from their social network accounts such as Twitter, Facebook and others. This way many have transformed their businesses and gained competitive advantage over their peers.
However, while many organizations in East Africa already use and operationalize some form of business intelligence applications within their business processes to leverage their data assets, the true potential of data is still untouched in many organizations. Advanced analytics, particularly predictive analytics, can help reveal the future and optimize operations.
In a nutshell, data has zero value sitting in a database unused. Fully integrating data visualization capabilities into a broadened BI strategy can create opportunities to improve the organization’s bottom line. It is time to consider new possibilities.
