Information Builders Users Share BI Dashboard, Project Management Tips
ORLANDOEffective presentations of business intelligence insights rely on good business processes and strong data and project management practices. Those were lessons from two of the more interesting user presentations at the Information Builders Summit held here June 3 through 7 with 1,400 attendees.
Information Builders supplies business intelligence, business analytics, and data reporting software for a variety of customers in the education, government, manufacturing, health, and retail industries. Like other technology vendors in the BI and analytics market, Information Builders makes the point that the spread of data-driven analytics has not only moved across industries and sectors, it has also moved throughout organizations. The company released results from a research study to coincide with the conference that showed more than 8 out of 10 employees are reporting involvement with business intelligence and analytics. The study showed that while most organizations regularly solicit feedback from executive management, mid-level management and knowledge workers about their information delivery preferences, they check with others in the enterprisepeople like front-line employees, customers, external partners and suppliers, less often. The results came from a survey of 401 business decision makers conducted by IDG Research Services.
