Business intelligence (BI) – applications and technologies used to gather, provide access to, and analyze data and information to support decision-making efforts Parallels between the challenges in business and challenges of war Collecting information Discerning patterns and meaning in the information Responding to the resultant information

5 The Problem: Data Rich, Information Poor
Businesses face a data explosion as digital images, in-boxes, and broadband connections doubles by 2010 The amount of data generated is doubling every year Some believe it will soon double monthly

Claudia Imhoff, president of Intelligent Solutions, divides the Spectrum of data mining analysis and business intelligence into three categories: Operational Tactical Strategic



12 BI’s Operational Value
Richard Hackathorn’s graph demonstrating the value of operational BI

13 BI’s Operational Value
The key is to shorten the latencies so that the time frame for opportunistic influences on customers, suppliers, and others is faster, more interactive, and better positioned

14 DATA MINING Data mining – process of analyzing data to extract information Data-mining tools – use a variety of techniques to find patterns and relationships in large volumes of information Classification Estimation Affinity grouping Clustering

15 DATA MINING Common forms of data-mining analysis capabilities include:
Cluster analysis Association detection Statistical analysis

16 Cluster Analysis Cluster analysis – a technique used to divide an information set into mutually exclusive groups such that the members of each group are as close together as possible to one another and the different groups are as far apart as possible CRM systems depend on cluster analysis to segment customer information and identify behavioral traits

17 Association Detection
Association detection – reveals the degree to which variables are related and the nature and frequency of these relationships in the information Market basket analysis

18 Statistical Analysis Statistical analysis – performs such functions as information correlations, distributions, calculations, and variance analysis Forecast – predictions made on the basis of time-series information Time-series information – time-stamped information collected at a particular frequency

Benefits of BI include: Single Point of Access to Information for All Users BI across Organizational Departments Up-to-the-Minute Information for Everyone

20 Four Primary Categories of BI Benefits
Four main categories: Quantifiable benefits Indirectly quantifiable benefits Unpredictable benefits Intangible benefits
