Increase the use of information? I can’t get to it..

How many times have you heard, ‘I have limited access to data so I had to make assumptions about what I thought happened and therefore made what I thought were reasonable conclusions, but there are potentially other explanations as well.’ – or something along those lines in an attempt to explain away a poor business decision. One thing that won’t change in 2010 is that making good decisions is a crucial skill at every level of an organisation. Well let’s make 2010 the year that we lose that excuse forever and start to adopt Business Intelligence as a way to make better decision, by more people, faster. Let’s make this new decade the one where Business Intelligence loses its stigma of clunky, unfriendly , complicated and make it a period of properly understanding your transactional history in your organisation so you can more professionally forecast and plan for the coming years based on a very clear picture of the financial footprint that you have left behind. It’s been always been there, but start 2010 with a new resolution to address this key priority – “I WILL USE BI MORE EFFECTIVELY TO MANAGE MY BUSINESS”
