Sample text

The question becomes: How does an organization go about obtaining and distributing this information? As the title of this book suggests, the answer is through the use of business intelligence. In fact, this objective serves as our definition of business intelligence. DEFINITION Business intelligence is the delivery of accurate, useful information to the appropriate decision makers within the necessary timeframe to support effective decision making. Business intelligence is not simply facts and figures on a printed report or a computer screen.

Decisions are made affecting costs, sales, and margins. Just as in our personal lives, the key to organizational success is to make good choices. The organization must have effective decision making. Who Is a Decision Maker? Just who is it that must make good choices within an organization? At first blush, it may seem that only the person at the top, the chief executive officer (CEO), the president, or the chairperson needs to be an effective decision maker. If that person makes appropriate strategic decisions, the organization will succeed!

One system is used for order processing, a different system for accounting, another for manufacturing, and still another for personnel. As we saw in the previous chapter, Maximum Miniatures, Incorporated has five different systems that can provide data for business intelligence. Even with the move toward integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, it is unlikely that all of an organization’s transactional data will be in one location. The measures used to provide business intelligence, on the other hand, do not respect these lines of separation.
