Business Intelligence is not a technology and it’s not a specific application.

It’s a process by which information can be gathered, collated and cleansed into a single place, and then made available to whoever needs it in its most useful form.

This can range from simple reports and Excel spreadsheets, through trend analysis to complex dashboards and even predicting the future.


A Business Intelligence platform will extract the useful data from any number of source systems and collate it into a central data warehouse. Depending on your situation there may only be a single source system, or there could be dozens all using different technologies. The data is copied, it can be validated, cleaned, summarised, standardised and even enhanced. You can then decide who has access to this central pool of information, and in what format. You can be confident that your whole organisation is using the correct, consistent information to make their critical business decisions.

Most IT systems are designed with one purpose of running day to day business. They do a very good job in their own, however as an organisation it is likely that you encounter a number of following problems:

  • Unable to create new reports from an old system
  • Difficult to combine information from multiple systems
  • Users may not have the skills or permission to access some systems
  • Running reports during working hours slows down other users


Most companies could gain huge benefits from a well implemented Business Intelligence platform.
