BI State of the Market Report


IT departments rarely know as much about a business as the business people themselves. But business people rarely take action on numbers alone: they share the information with others, soliciting their feedback and performing external research before taking action. Business users still depend on IT to deliver answers related to the information that they receive. Business intelligence (BI) 2.0—also known as collaborative BI—uses the collective intelligence of the user community to enrich existing information. Learn how business intelligence (BI) 2.0 is helping business users create and modify their own reports, share and enrich information, and provide feedback to each other and to information producers.

When the community helps itself, information is turned into actionable information more quickly than when using purely “traditional” methods of community support, such as meetings, phone calls, and e-mail. And when actions are taken more quickly, the entire organization becomes more nimble and ultimately more competitive. This overview discusses how BI 2.0 can provide real benefits within your organization and what product features to look for in a BI solution in order to realize those benefits.

We hope you’ll find this guide a useful tool in determining which BI solution is best suited to your company’s business model and particular needs.

Using BI 2.0 to Increase Your Competitive Advantage


Business users know their data better than IT does. They know the meaning of the data, its history, and its relationship with other data. Yet traditional BI solutions have business users referring to IT for assistance with their data. Also, they are forced to work in silos. Sure, they can create their own reports and maybe even share them with other business users, but when it comes to sharing their own knowledge about the data, they have to rely on e-mail, telephone, and face-to-face meetings. By enabling the sharing of data-related knowledge through the BI system itself, business users become more self-sufficient and actions can be taken more quickly.

The raison d’être of BI is to provide business users with information that enables them to take action. Even if business users are self-sufficient when it comes to creating and sharing data, data on its own is rarely sufficient to take action. Identifying an opportunity in the market through numbers alone is not sufficient to justify investment in a new product or geography. Identifying a bottleneck in a business process is not sufficient to justify changes in the business process. Information about a business issue or opportunity is merely a part of the overall “solution domain.” Action is usually only taken after considering a number of factors in addition to the data, such as human knowledge and experience, the economic environment, and the competitive environment.

In this section, we lay out the capabilities to look for in a BI solution—and specific functional requirements needed to support these capabilities—that contribute to the goal of “harnessing collective intelligence.” In general, the more recent entrants into the BI market are paying the most attention to BI 2.0. Some vendors, such as Good Data, have it as a central component of their solution offerings.

The following are key capabilities of BI 2.0:

  • Collaboration
    Business users are able to share information within the user community and create discussion threads relating to the information.


  • Identification of useful information
    Business users can flag information that is likely to be of use to others within the community.


  • Enriching of Information
    Business users can enrich the information through their knowledge and experience in addition to other external information sources in order to explain trends and generally assist other consumers of that information.


The community of “business users” needn’t be restricted to internal users. User collaboration is already mature within the Web space, under the guise of Web 2.0. With Web 2.0, collective intelligence is harnessed through comments on blog posts; contributions to wikis such as Wikipedia; and tagging of content, such as photos on Flickr. BI 2.0 takes these methods and applies them in the BI space by making data the focus of user collaboration.

The following sections take the capabilities above and list the functional requirements that support them. Bear in mind that each of these functional requirements is a business user requirement and not an IT or development requirement.

Modern Finance In The Digital Age: Report and Comply Best Practices


In the era of big data, the traditional models for report and comply functions are becoming obsolete. But report and comply processes no longer have to be time consuming, frustrating, or fragmented. By consolidating systems and information across departments and divisions, enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions via cloud technologies can help businesses modernize these processes, making the record-to-report cycle faster and allowing for data to be in the right hands and the right time. This synchronization of information via the cloud can streamline what used to be a long and complex process. Better business choices can be made by installing best practices for data governance, ensuring that the highest quality data is used and errors are avoided.

Increasingly, modern business models feature cloud technology as vital for present and future transactions, but best practices must also be installed to ensure success. In this white paper, read how to develop and refine report and comply best practices in the areas of general ledger accounting, the financial close, management reporting, and external reporting. Learn how the standard of real-time decision making is being challenged and replaced by a more forward-thinking, data-driven idea of “right-time” decision making, and the importance of streamlining report and comply functions. By using best practices and technology together, learn how to modernize and hone these processes to develop a more efficient strategic process that allows tasks to occur simultaneously, allowing everyone to have the same access to information, reduce errors, and eliminate overtime.

Market Report: Mobile HCM


TEC recently asked end users all about their mobile HCM needs, usage, and challenges, and then asked vendors about their mobile HCM offerings and target markets. We discovered that while most participants in our survey either currently use mobile HCM technology or are considering doing so in the future, end users seem to be taking advantage of HCM mobile capabilities to complete well-known routines rather than explore new possibilities such as HR analytics. Read TEC's mobile HCM market report to find out more results of the survey and get HCM analyst Raluca Druta's take on mobile employees and how mobility fits in with HR practices.
