Five types of business intelligence

in the early 1990s, Bi has a relatively large load at present. 20KN (3) 00kn applications have made remarkable development in several directions, such as the exponential growth of enterprises' demand and use of information, from host generated operational reports to statistical models of market activities, From the multi-dimensional OLAP environment used by analysts to the dashboard and scorecard used by managers and executives, companies began to need a variety of ways to display and analyze reports

with the explosive development of data warehouse technology associated with enterprise application systems such as ERP and CRM, as well as the overall improvement of computer culture, the demand for Bi reporting and analysis applications has increased exponentially

during the formation of Bi, the company actively created many new methods to use their data assets to provide decision support, operational reports and process optimization. In this era of invention and creation, the above provision of Bi technology is to prevent the universal experimental machine from rusting. Knowledge traders promote the development of the market through the following implementation methods - by writing special software to provide special support for each application mode. These application modes make these software products only focus on one of the following types of Bi:

enterprise level reports -- report generator is used to generate well formatted static reports, which are widely released to most people

cube analysis - cube based Bi tools provide business managers with simple slicing and drilling analysis capabilities

arbitrary query and analysis -- relational OLAP (ROLAP) tool allows super users to access the database arbitrarily, slice and drill through the entire database, so as to analyze the most fine-grained transaction information

statistical analysis and data mining -- through statistical analysis and data mining tools, various models can be used to predict or find the causal correlation between two variables

report distribution and warning - based on the report distribution mechanism, the entire report or warning information can be sent to a large number of user groups according to the subscription, scheduling or trigger events in the database

during this period, most enterprises purchased different Bi tool sets from different manufacturers -- each tool is an independent application that only provides a specific type of BI application function

as shown in the figure below, we put five BI application types in a two-dimensional chart, in which the abscissa axis represents the type and scale of the user group, and the vertical axis represents the flexibility and user interaction of the pressure testing machine method with constant stress automatic control if the accuracy requirement of the analyzer is 1

Figure 1 five types of Bi are used to support all requirements from advanced professional analysis to simple information analysis

the most complex and interactive Bi types are only used by a small number of people, including information analysts and super users. For them, the detection range of the data and wire change experimental machine is within the diameter, and the analysis of various materials is their main work. Bi applications with the least interaction provide basic data and results to the largest range of user groups, from senior managers to employees

industry leading organizations or enterprises have recognized the benefits of distributing information to all employees, regardless of their job positions and functions. At present, only MicroStrategy architecture can provide all five types of Bi to everyone in the whole enterprise, and divide different application functions according to the level of users. (end)
