Business Intelligence

Delivering Actionable Business Insight

We define Business Intelligence (BI) as the collective of visualisation tools and data warehouse, with the purpose of delivering actionable business insights and meeting reporting requirements.

There are a wide range of tools, even just from SAP, to support BI. There is no one-solution fits all, with each company unique goals and priorities. Birchman can help define and deliver your BI strategy.
