BI technologies provide historical, current, and predictive views of business operations. Common functions of business intelligence technologies are Data Warehousing, ETL, Reporting, OLAP, analytics, data mining, business performance management, benchmarks, text mining, and predictive analytics. Business Intelligence aims to support better business decision-making.
BI applications strongly rely on a solid underlying architecture that gathers data from a data warehouse or a data mart. BI makes use of an intelligence information system which data is supplied from different sources: production data, information concerning the company or its environment and economic data. ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) is therefore responsible for extracting data from different sources, cleaning them up and loading them into a data warehouse. Focus should be made on Data Quality. Finally the data needs to be easily accessible trough analytical reporting recommended using a unique Information Distribution Portal and therefore having a single point of data/truth. Use state-of-the-art business intelligence platforms to fully automate and integrate your corporate performance needs. These Business Intelligence infrastructures are used to access information in your data warehouse and legacy systems. Metadata is needed to have a correct overview and information on the data stored in the Data warehouse.
Lessons learned is that Business Intelligence leads to a dead end street unless it is based on a solid underlying architecture -> Build the Corporate Information Factory

Business & Decision propose to accompany clients in streamlining their existing BI systems by offering audit, selection tool allowing its customers to reposition the BI infrastructure at the heart of the information system.
Business and Decision considers that defining a cohesive BI roadmap should not be considered as a vendor-driven exercice that companies just buy and implement. Based on their current IT landscape, strategy, priorities and painpoints, many companies need to reinvent the way they approach and architect BI and performance management. They used to manage projects, now they need to manage initiatives: project portfolios rather than individual projects, and the whole lifecycle of each initiative, including continuous improvement and not only initial design
With platform consolidation, shared services and the right project delivery models, companies now get all the building blocks required to bring BI and performance management to a new level of maturity.
