I got a text message from my friend, Lola. It read, “Business intelligence tools make me feel stupid”. I responded with ‘LOL’ but she persisted. “trying to do data extraction is like pulling teeth, scattering them, then picking them up and trying to figure out where they go”. I called to continue the conversation and learned that her business intelligence tools were top-heavy, complex corporate performance management and business intelligence software solutions.
Integrating business data from systems and databases is easier than Lola thinks! BUT you need a business intelligence company that offers an easy to implement business intelligence tool, provides simple integration, analysis of disparate data sources, intuitive custom views, a browser-based environment, with minimal training and simple data extraction and data management for even your most technology-challenged user (Lola, take note!).
Business intelligence software with simple data extraction, data transformation, cube management and ETL lets you easily manage, organize, filter and analyze information from multiple data sources.
The sheer volume of data in most companies is overwhelming: Data warehouses, data marts, ERP, best-of-breed applications, CRM, operational systems, databases, spreadsheets and legacy systems! How do you integrate, extract, analyze and filter all of this data?
Get a business intelligence tool that includes cube-based, consolidated data definition repositories, a single point of integration, and personalized views for meaningful data display so it’s easy to understand and manipulate fields and columns.
I didn’t want to rub it in, so I didn’t tell Lola that she bought the wrong solution. But I’ll tell you!
