Is there a difference between Business Intelligence and Business Activity Monitoring?

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).

Cleaning up Temp Tables and Fields in QlikView and Qlik Sense.

QlikView south africa

Most of the time we use temporary fields and tables in our load scripts in Qlik.

Usually we have some sort of a naming convention like temp_TableName or TableName_temp.

I quite like the way a temp table is identified in SQL with a #-prefix, so I adopted this naming convention for my temp fields and tables in Qlik.

This brought with it a nice advantage in that all the #-fields and #-tables are listed at the top.

Now you can easily see if you have any temp fields and tables left in the app.

This got me thinking: if all my temp tables and fields follow a strict naming convention, I can identify and drop those at the end of my script easily, and not have to worry about them being left behind.

What Business Intelligence Implementation Means For Your Organization

The importance of interpreting data as it comes cannot be stressed enough. Many businesses have suffered setbacks due to poor data interpretation. Business Intelligence provides a workable platform for executives to craft new decisions in order to circumvent these setbacks. Some have surmised that the explosion of cloud-based services has rendered CIOs irrelevant in the business world. But this couldn't be more wrong. The participation of an independent mind is still as valuable as it was thirty years ago. Perhaps even more so. For all the advances we've made in computing and automation, we're still largely reliant on the perception and unique foresight of a breathing, living human being in making sense of raw data.
