What is Important to Make Best Use of Business Intelligence?

Data analysis and visualization are important in making good use of business intelligence. In 2007 Tibco acquired Spotfire, a Swedish-American company which pioneered the use of dashboards to analyze and display disparate and often fast-moving data. Procter & Gamble uses Spotfire as the engine for its Business Spheres – conference rooms each equipped with around 50 m2 of curved screens that allow executives to query up to 200 TB of data in real time. According to Filippo Passerini, P&G’s Chief Information Officer, the system allows the company to make better, faster decisions than were previously possible.
