Social Business Intelligence

Data Sharing and Collaboration Engenders Data Popularity

Social networks and social media are ubiquitous! Every aspect of modern life involves sharing and social interaction, 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 BI, 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.

As power users, and data analysis, become 'popular', the enterprise will see improved user adoption of BI tools and begin to understand the types of data that users value, and how to provide, and present, data to improve data leverage, and increase confidence in decisions. Understanding the social aspect of data analysis, and data popularity allows the enterprise to make decisions about additional provisioning of data, reports and dashboards to business users.

Manage Data Quality vs. Data Popularity

Social BI creates 'popular' business users and content, and reveals what data and content is valued by users. Popularity is not the measure of quality but rather a measure of business value, providing insight for IT and BI teams to standardize data and content and provide high quality, certified, curated data to users.

Share, Rate, Discuss and Increase Business Value

Every consumer and business user is used to sharing, rating, discussing and learning from others. This idea has become an expectation and it could and should apply to Business Intelligence and to your business users as well! Business Intelligence sharing and ranking and the concept of 'data popularity' can optimize resources by allowing users to access reports and data that might be just what they need to complete a task or analysis. If they don't have to reinvent a report, they can optimize their time.

Consider the daily decisions made in your organization! Many of those decisions do NOT require 100% accurate data. Rather, they require agility and enough, solid data and analysis to see a trend or a pattern or spot an opportunity or a challenge. Users want to drill down and dive into data without having to ask for help from IT or an analyst. This agility will move your organization forward with dependable data and prevent delays. An agile data environment creates a social network of users and allows for learning, sharing, collaboration and an increased understanding of interrelationships and dependencies within the enterprise.
