Putting The B Back Into BI

Filip Doušek darüber, warum es wichtig ist, sich wieder auf das Business in BI zu fokussieren:

I was planning to write about putting the intelligence back into business intelligence. About making data tools smarter than 90’s style drilling and 00’s style charting. About massive analytics and graph DBs and dealing with big data. And how BI should be more AI. That would be my inner geek’s blogpost. It would be about the promise of BI - making companies smarter through the use of data.

But when I put my business hat on, I don’t care about the intelligence. […]

The whole point of BI is (or should be) business, not intelligence. And that is the real problem with BI. Not missing the I, but missing the B.

Und, was aus seiner Sicht nicht funktioniert:

What Doesn’t Work: Dashboards. Reports. Exploration. Self-service. Why? Because digging around increasingly large datasets is not what you want your people to spend time on. It doesn’t directly increase profits or speed up execution. Quite on the contrary. Executives today are swamped with information, 95% of which is noise. Digging through that noise distracts them from work, burdens their minds and clots their decision-making.

Es geht Ihm, wie auch bei der Datenvisualisierung, um das Vermeiden von Störungen, Ablenkungen und um Priorisierung. Die richtigen Fragen zu kennen, und auch zu beantworten. Ein guter Ratschlag, sich weniger um die Tools zu kümmern, sondern um die Business Prozesse und deren Unterstützung.
