Business Intelligence Overview

Yesterday, i was sharing about overview of IT world and jobs. Now i wanna share about what exactly i am doing. Still in the IT environment but spesifically i wanna talk about Business Intelligence (BI).

What is Business Intelligence ?
  • System that facilitate an ever-growing variety of applications that begin with sophisticated analysis of atomic level data and range to proactive information deliver to system subscribers. (MSTR-BI)
  • The ability for an organization to take all its capabilities and covert them into knowledge, ultimately, getting the right information to right people, at the right time, via the right channel. (WIKI)
  • A revolutionary technology that enable business people understand their business more than before through insightful information to support decision making. (NICO)
Data > Information > Action
When we talk about BI, it means we are talking about data, analysis and information. In my country Indonesia, all those things are related with Excel. Yes, Microsoft Excel. Most of these things can be provided by Excel, but... not as sophisticated as the BI technology. So many of kinds of BI and here are some BI technology :
  • MicroStrategy (MSTR)
  • IBM Cognos
  • Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE)
  • SAP Business Object & SAP Hana
  • Qlikview
  • Tableau
  • Many More...
Check out this video on youtube : BI

MicroStrategy is my toy for now. Then what is my role?
  • Developer
  • Architect
  • Administrator
  • Business Intelligence Analyst
Developer >>> Create report, dashboard, and document combined with numerous data style manipulation in desktop & web.

Architect >>> Design business architecture related with business model that would be implemented in the project.

Administrator >>> Operate and maintain the BI system and infrastructure.
