The digital revolution has created a massive influx of information that shows no signs of slowing down. Data is everywhere; it is created all the time and is deeply rooted in companies’ processes. Today, everyone expects to be able to access new information and use it for everyday decision-making, as well as to satisfy their own curiosity about new opportunities.
There are three main focus areas when designing a complete business intelligence solution: data governance, data strategy and data architecture:
- Data Foundation, meaning the integration of data from different sources to make them usable, reliable and understandable.
- Data strategy and management means defining and managing data sets, viewing them as a company asset, in order to encourage innovation, achieve excellence, and generate a competitive advantage;
- Visualisation of reports, analysis and information to allow users to benefit from the integrated data in an efficient and effective way.
