How Location Data Boosts Your Business

business intelligence, Location Data

Forbes Insights indicate that mapping various location data types, such as heat signatures, waterways and storm patterns, can highlight previously unseen spatial relationships and, consequently, improve decision making.

About 80% of all business data contains a location component, therefore, it is crucial for you to understand how location affects your business. If collected and sorted efficiently, location data can improve insights and benefit every area in your business, including marketing, sales, operations, logistics, and so on.

Location intelligence (LI) has become vitally important, yet often overlooked, when it comes to business intelligence (BI). LI is used to derive meaningful insights from geospatial data relationships to either create or improve processes and solutions within businesses.

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).

However, data is not the same as information – data is not helpful, nor meaningful, unless used in context to gain insight or information. BI tools help with this – business intelligence helps to analyse data and transform it into useable information that can help fine tune business operations and meet goals.
