HP offers packages with different features and options at different prices. The tariffs are user-based and allow multiple devices per user.

The BI tools themselves can also be obstacles. The tools are more intuitive than before, but are not yet fully accessible . Finally, many companies do not sufficiently understand their business processes to determine how to improve them. In addition, companies must remain cautious about the processes they choose.

What are the potential problems of business intelligence?

One of the main barriers to the adoption of Business Intelligence is the cultural resistance of the company’s employees . Similarly, poor data quality or the large amount of unnecessary data can be problematic. The solution for obtaining relevant data from business intelligence systems is based on standard data. Indeed, data is the main component of any BI solution. These are building blocks of insights. Companies need to make sure their data warehouses are tidy before they start extracting insights. If not, they will operate on falsified information.

If the process does not have a direct impact on the company’s revenue or if it is not standardized across the company, all efforts may be in vain . Firms need to understand all process-related activities, how information and data flows through the enterprise, how data is passed to different business users, and how they are used by everyone to fulfill their part of the process. This is partly played by the Business Intelligence Manager.
