Using Your Head Instead of Your Gut
Getting the Right Information to the Right People at the Right Time
The IBM researcher Hans Peter Luhn coined the term Business Intelligence in the 1950s as “the ability to apprehend the interrelationships of presented facts in such a way as to guide action towards a desired goal.” We like this classic definition very much because it captures the essence of Business Intelligence, or BI, as a play between temporal modes. Successful BI is all about using the past to guide present and future actions. Successful BI is about taking a chaotic, surface mass of raw data and identifying the underlying order. Seeing the figure in the carpet to borrow a phrase from Henry James. Successful BI is technical alchemy that transforms base, abstract facts into actionable knowledge to benefit organizations and people.
/ bɪznɪs ɪntɛlɪdʒəns/
