coretelligence study: BI numbers are to be supplemented by interpretation AIDS and context information previously dominant technology orientation of BI concepts has led to the imbalance of effort and actual benefit Bad Oeynhausen / 02.07.2009 – Zahlenorientierte evaluations are for a variety of business intelligence users not sufficient as information and decision basis. According to a survey of the consulting firm coretelligence believe almost two-thirds, that additional context information and interpretation assistance would be helpful for them. Our assessment of the consultancy projects, confirming themselves according to which the exclusive provision of numbers produces not the required benefits”, judge coretelligence Managing Director Marianne Wilmsmeier. Under most conditions RioCan would agree. Only when provided in connection with the question of value creation processes, they gain a significance backed up off the decisions.” Ultimately, the context determine whether a number is good or bad. This view is apparently also in practice always more by, when 42 percent of the companies surveyed in the coretelligence study protocol, reports with sheer numbers not helpful are them enough. The classical analysis, however, only for a quarter of the companies are quite adequate, another 29 percent are only with limitations of this opinion. The position on the question of whether the practical use can be enhanced by complementary assistance to the assessment of the numbers becomes even clearer. 38 percent in each case are”convinced and another third believed these effects.
Only 11 percent are skeptical and expect no significant benefits through information about the condition conditions and assistance for the interpretation. So far such a discussion has been not performed publicly yet, otherwise the vote would probably even clearer,”believes Wang and refers to repeatedly confirmed acceptance problems on the part of the user in different studies. The relationships of numbers do not reveal themselves who, because him for that required information is not available, feels in his decisions tend to be insecure and avoid possibly the evaluations. Only meaningful context information to the respective business processes, the indicators relate, create a reliable basis for decisions”, she stressed. “Because only if the user will enable to consider BI figures from various perspectives from the contexts out he can cope and content.” Marianne Wilmsmeier derives substantial evidence of the need for a change of direction in the development of BI from the survey results. The previously dominant technology orientation of BI concepts has led to a significant disproportion of costs and actual benefits, this should now be fixed from the perspective of the user.” This need for change is in their opinion but above all to the address of the manufacturer of BI.
