Social Business Intelligence Engenders Sharing, Collaboration and Results!
You would have to be living on another planet to avoid social networking these days. The concept has permeated our lives and that includes the business environment. Whether you are engaging in online outreach to your customers and partners or encouraging sharing of data within your organization, you have probably experienced the benefits of shared knowledge, and collaboration and the new and innovative ideas and solutions that result from this kind of sharing.
When it comes to socialization and sharing, the Business Intelligence environment is no exception. Today’s data democratization and data literacy projects not only encourage this kind of sharing, but they recognize that these kinds of sharing environs can provide great benefit to the organization.
Imagine an environment where business users can access a business intelligence and analysis portal and see popular data to rate, share and comment. This type of sharing can optimize resources by allowing users to access reports, dashboards and data that might be just what they need to complete a task or analysis. When you implement social media and social networking within the Business Intelligence environment business users can share, rate, discuss and learn from others.
With Social Business Intelligence, organizations will see the emergence of power users who take a creative, insightful approach to data analysis. Just as social media users can ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ a provocative post from another user, a social business intelligence tool can support the same kind of sharing and learning within your organization.
