What Are BI Reports?
By Garth Jones
What are Business Intelligence (BI) reports? Before I can answer this, let’s take a look at the definition of BI.
TechTarget defines BI as:
“Business intelligence (BI) is a technology-driven process for analyzing data and presenting actionable information to help corporate executives, business managers and other end users make more informed business decisions. BI encompasses a variety of tools, applications and methodologies that enable organizations to collect data from internal systems and external sources, prepare it for analysis, develop and run queries against the data, and create reports, dashboards and data visualizations to make the analytical results available to corporate decision makers as well as operational workers.
The potential benefits of business intelligence programs include accelerating and improving decision making; optimizing internal business processes; increasing operational efficiency; driving new revenues; and gaining competitive advantages over business rivals. BI systems can also help companies identify market trends and spot business problems that need to be addressed.”
The other day, I was asked about our reports and how they compare to Business Intelligence (BI) dashboards/reports. I responded by saying that Enhansoft creates a lot of BI dashboards and reports. Many, if not all, of our report sets start off at a high level and will allow the reader to drill through to additional reports for more details about an item.
BI reports allow the reader to make an informed decision. This is what our reports do!
