Business intelligence has reached the level of SMEs. Outdated privacy protection laws and the lack of skilled professionals, however, often prevent a successful BI strategy.
To better exploit data sources, acquire new ones and create detailed reports, numerous SMEs have already implemented BI solutions. In doing so, however, emphasizes Cubeware, it is important that management work out company-specific rules for the use of data and publish these in the company. A BI solution should also include as many different data sources as possible in a simple way and integrate them consistently. Those who develop and use well-thought-out and appropriate data models can be sure that the results will actually deliver the information a company needs for useful planning. (Source: Cubeware/bs)
