Business intelligence (BI) is the practice of transforming data from disparate operational units into a common environment for analysis and reporting. Integration of mapping and location analytics with this common environment becomes more cost effective than linking to multiple, disconnected, operational systems. This results in a faster return on investment (ROI) and a deeper understanding of the underlying root cause of items affecting business
Esri enhances BI analytics through the addition of geography on behaviors, activities and processes. Adding maps to the reporting output of BI allows decision makers to easily visualize regionally influenced behaviors, activities and processes that are not evident through other means. These reports are an effective tool for communicating performance information throughout an organization. The result of a successful BI implementation is improved decision making through better analysis tools, comprehension of the underlying data and timely reporting.
