"We have so much data but we don't know how to interpret it!" This is a situation that managers often complain about. The fact is that now IT can collect nearly every single bit of data you can imagine, which can bring to light very powerful realizations about your business, but if you don't have the right tools to convert this data into information that drives decision making, you're still left with a bunch of numbers. Excel has been the standard solution, but we have evolved way beyond the spreadsheet, and on the market there are now numerous tools with analytical and visualization functions that allows users to play with their data in a meaningful way. Business Intelligence Software is today an umbrella term for the processes, methods and measurements businesses use to easily analyze and understand information relevant to the past and current performance of the enterprise, and enable more informed decision making for the future.
