“You don’t tug on Superman’s cape. You don’t spit into the wind. You don’t pull the mask off that ol’ Lone Ranger,” and you don’t run your business without analytics.

As 2018 wanes, the company that dismisses business intelligence does so at its own peril. Over the past half decade, as BI solutions have evolved, more and more businesses have been run at the speed of analytics.

If it’s not already, yours ought to be.

Mining raw, collected data no longer suffices. Today’s analytics comes to life not with standard graph and pie charts, but with dynamic and real-time visualizations from which sound strategy can be developed – or adjusted. Business intelligence software delivers value by generating real-time analytics that delineates trends, from which proactive and objective decisions can be made.

The payoff? This deeper insight impacts and improves personnel, product, and user experience. Your company runs better. Staff is content. Customers are happy. Product is sold. Revenue climbs. Profits soar.

So, it’s no surprise when looking back to Better Buys’ 2016 BI Trends Infographic that our new and updated 2018 BI Trends Infographic continues to reflect the momentum, popularity and utility of Business Intelligence software.
