The least intelligent business decisions would be to dismiss change. We can’t force today’s competitive environment not to be hot on our heels all the time, so we must accept change as a constant.
Business Intelligence (BI) has been adapting since day one. BI’s evolution grew from being a simple support system for a single manager, to becoming the master of data mining, analytical processing, querying and reporting. It’s evolution also introduced interactive online platforms with high security that large groups of decision-makers can access at any time.
In between this evolution, around the early 2000’s, Gartner Inc. helped accelerate BI’s growth to fast forward by introducing Business Activity Monitoring (BAM).
