Business Intelligence & Planning
Make sound business decisions
Business Intelligence solutions support companies to make decisions based on sound data.
Increasingly, planning solutions that utilize system supported BI functionality are coming to the fore. Included in this are revenue and turnover planning. New forecasting technologies (“predictive analysis”) can support users with their business processes. Joining classic reporting requirements such as sales statistics, balance sheet demarcation or break even analyses are more complex forecasts such as customer churn or target audience analyses and the use of mobile analysis environments.
The interaction between BI and planning requires the integration of these solutions in companies and organizations. BI and planning solutions must be positioned as integrative in their relations to the various conflicting areas. Belonging to these conflicting areas are strategic, specialist, technical and organisational aspects, the ignoring of which carries the danger of the too one-sided positioning of BI and planning solutions. During the running of a project or in the lifecycle of BI and planning solutions, serious disadvantages for business performance can arise out of this, ranging from technical inadequacies to acceptance problems in the company or organization.
