For business owners, business intelligence (BI) uses data to enable intelligent decisions and save time, resources and energy. It’s tempting for companies to try to squeeze as much output as possible from their workforce. The issue with this approach is that it’s not sustainable. Stressed-out employees get burned out easily. This interesting topic came to us from the Benn Substack’s blogpost, “Is BI dead?

Too much data and demand can contribute to increased work stress. A key solution to fight this business crisis is to deliver more intelligence to work. 

A BI tool should bring together data from a variety of business sources. It should manage and govern that data so that people can consistently make sense of it.

Over the last decade, many early BI functions have been removed and relaunched as independent products. So does where does that leave BI?

As long as companies need dashboards and reports, we’ll need BI. But not the old version. A new, intelligent one, like Data Harmony: a fully customizable suite of software products designed to maximize precise, efficient information management and retrieval. Our suite includes tools for taxonomy and thesaurus construction, machine-aided indexing, database management, information retrieval and explainable artificial intelligence.
