8 min read

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Whenever an existing technology tool suddenly becomes more accessible to a greater number of people, it is  said that it has been “democratized.” In recent years, the ability to immediately access vast amounts of digitally available on-demand business information (often via mobile means) has truly become widespread, which has in turn led to the democratization of business intelligence technology.

BI in the era of big data.

A simplified explanation of the role of business intelligence (“BI”) is that it enables organizations to use data to improve their decision-making processes. Business intelligence technology generally describes the software, hardware, and platforms designed to allow businesses to retrieve, analyze, transform and report data.

BI itself is nothing new, and large corporations around the world have been utilizing its various forms for decades. The concept of BI emerged circa 1996,

A Step-by-Step Guide For Entrepreneurs

What should be in your business plan?

Creating a business plan is a key part of starting any business venture. Even if you’ll never use it in this format for attracting investors and raising capital, it can be vital for helping all entrepreneurs to ask and think through essential questions.

Nowadays business plans are used as an internal roadmap for the execution of the company since pitch decks have taken over when it comes to fundraising required materials. For a winning deck, take a look at the pitch deck template created by Silicon Valley legend, Peter Thiel (see it here) that I recently covered. Thiel was the first angel investor in Facebook with a $500K check that turned into more than $1 billion in cash.

10 differences between Data Science and Business Intelligence

In years past, Business intelligence (BI) was something only big blue chip companies could enjoy. Mainly because employing analytics software was expensive, and it required building data centres and hiring IT specialists, who are also expensive. BI systems have, over time, become less expensive and have become a useful way of gathering corporate data and correlating that data in a way that will produce useful observations to the business.

However, times have changed. Data is getting bigger every day, in terms of volume and variety, and businesses need Data Science if they are to capitalise on market opportunities faster than their competitors. BI and Data Science are distinctively different beasts. BI systems deliver answers to the questions you know you need to ask. They are usually single systems that don’t help you to predict anything: they may help you to view the relationships of various variables, but they don’t help

Business Intelligence and Data Quality

Informed companies make better decisions, and business intelligence (BI) solutions are vital to the health of enterprises of all sizes. The need for BI solutions is not about the technology but rather the information that the solutions deliver, so business owners should drive the need for BI solutions. The technology team does not create the data or use it in a business context, but it does provide mechanisms to store, retrieve, and archive the data accurately and securely.

BI tools organize dissimilar and diverse data across the enterprise, enabling multidimensional relationships of the data that can provide keener insights that empower decisions to leverage opportunities with on‐demand intelligence. More than just spreadsheets on steroids, BI allows the ability to tailor the information to the user’s perspective.

In today’s economic climate, there is a focus on reducing waste and maximizing benefits on information already known about consumers and end-users. A business
