Why is BI so important?

Business intelligence and data analytics is evolving at a rapid pace.

As we consolidate ourselves in the digital age BI is taking a pivotal position in company success.  More so, as we move towards heavier servitization, industry 4. 0 and increased volumes of big data, BI is adapting to changing business models.

Data analytics has long been ingrained throughout every business. The future will see companies using the vast amounts of Big Data being created for financial gain, product quality and making informed decisions. The benefits an effective business intelligence set-up can offer cannot be discounted, providing and retaining a strong competitive edge.

Hennik Research’s newly created Connect BI conference offers the perfect platform to explore the exciting and intriguing world of data analytics systems.
