Summary
Turn storehouses of data into a strategic tool Business intelligence has recently become a word used by almost every CFO, controller, and analyst. After having spent the last decade implementing Enterprise Resource Planning software and other mission critical solutions, companies now have large databases with transactional data sitting in their computer rooms. Now, finally, the technology has reached a point where it is possible- in almost real time-to quickly and easily analyze the financial data in the corporate databases, to be able to make more intelligent business decisions. This book will help financial managers understand the trends, technology, software selection, and implementation of financial business intelligence (financial BI) software. With a dictionary of business intelligence terms, a comprehensive list of Request for Proposal questions, and examples of popular financial business intelligence reroutes and user interfaces, this book enables managers to measure their companies' business intelligence and maximize its value
