Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

Accelerating (and Fast-Starting) the SME Business at Oracle (and SAP) - Part 3


Part 1 of this blog series outlined Oracle’s recent (and seemingly genuine) change of heart and approach towards partnering and catering enterprise applications to small and medium enterprises (SME’s). The analysis then moved onto the Oracle Accelerate program, which was launched about three years ago to allow partners to sell more smaller projects in a fixed time and price

Business Services and Consulting


There are several ways to define the business services and consulting industry, but they all make a clear distinction between business services (services a client cannot or does not want to perform in-house) and consulting (services that will improve a client's activities). Of course, these two different types of activities can be combined into one, depending on the client's requirements.

However, the line between the two types is sometimes blurry. For instance, a company may provide shipping logistics services for a client (or for the client's clients), in the sense that it handles the shipping of goods for the client; but it can also provide consulting services (or extend its own logistics services) to help the client improve the transportation system already in place.

Business Intelligence Success, Lessons Learned


Is business intelligence (BI) an application that pays off? We have all heard mixed results but a 2003 extensive study on on-line analytical processing (OLAP) states that BI usually pays off over 60 percent of the time , explains where the value is found, and describes what’s required to get the pay off.

bi sap's small business  Nigel Pendse explains that BI benefits are very real. While the report covers many aspects of OLAP and BI, we will focus on business benefits and overcoming the obstacles of achieving those benefits. According to the report, approximately 19 percent of companies implementing BI claim they have met or exceeded their business goals. Over 60 percent state they have at least largely met their goals. As always, soft benefits were more easily obtainable than hard benefits. A detailed look at the types of Read More

What's Wrong With Application Software? Business Changes, Software Must Change with the Business.


Business changes constantly in small ways and large. It is rare to find an application product that can change once it is implemented.
