What should you expect from automated Business Intelligence (BI) support? What are the pros and cons of this type of support? How can it help your company in your efforts to improve business performance? These are questions that many companies ask when they begin using BI tools, and they’re valid questions given the potential risks and rewards associated with these tools.
The benefits of automated Business Intelligence support:
With automated Business Intelligence support, users can start using a new tool almost immediately after they make a decision. They don’t have to wait on assistance from IT or anyone else, and that’s very appealing to businesses of all sizes—from large enterprises with hundreds of employees to SMBs who want smaller operations. In fact, automated Business Intelligence support gives users exactly what they need without overloading them with features they won’t ever use.
An important detail to consider when implementing an automated Business Intelligence service is how it ties into other platforms and technologies. While you may be able to handle certain processes through automation alone, others may require outside help for tasks like data retrieval or data preparation.
What it takes to run fully automated Business Intelligence support:
In order to run fully automated Business Intelligence support, you will need a lot of resources. The first and most important is having access to an expert IT staff that has experience running a fully automated business. You will also need a good set of data warehousing experts for your team because they are going to be writing many queries and reports for different departments in your organization. It’s also very important to have a detailed process laid out about what type of information should go into certain company areas. This ensures that everything stays organized and people aren’t just giving any info over at any time. Lastly, it’s extremely important to have security measures taken into place before going live with automatic Business Intelligence support because then you can avoid having people get their hands on information they shouldn’t have access too or accidentally change something without realizing it. Having someone who already knows all of these procedures already would be best, but if not it’s fine to try out some trial-and-error until you figure them all out.
It’s also really important to teach employees how they can sign up for help themselves through web based tools so that they are always more able to fix problems as soon as possible instead of waiting till someone checks back in a couple days later. Also by doing so you eliminate issues where employees may forget crucial details when explaining their situation/problem on the phone, which could lead to misunderstandings and extra costs when fixing things later down the road if necessary.
