Business Intelligence: Turning Knowledge into Power
Endsley, Krista
School Business Affairs, v75 n9 p26, 28 Oct 2009
Today, many school districts are turning to business intelligence tools to retrieve, organize, and share knowledge for faster analysis and more effective, guided decision making. Business intelligence (BI) tools are the technologies and applications that gather and report information to help an organization's leaders make better decisions. BI tools allow school leaders to drill down, up, across, and into specific trends; monitor budgets and stay abreast of spending trends; conduct up-to-the-minute analyses; use fast-access critical decision tools; and gain insight into organizational performance. By having precise, up-to-date information at their fingertips, education administrators at every level can gain deeper insight for strengthening stewardship, improving agility, and, ultimately, securing the success of their institution and its students.
