A broader and perhaps more current definition of this discipline is this: business intelligence is the process of collecting business data and turning it into information that is meaningful and actionable towards a strategic goal. Or put even more simply, BI is the effective use of data and information to make sound business decisions. Business intelligence encompasses the following elements:

  • Reporting: the process of accessing data, formatting it and delivering it inside and outside the organization
  • Analysis: identifying patterns and establishing relationships in a group of data
  • Data mining: the extraction of original information from data
  • Data quality and interpretation: the greater or lesser correlation between data and the real-world objects they represent
  • Predictive analysis: a branch of data mining, it attempts to predict probabilities and trends

Reporting and analysis are the central building blocks of business intelligence, and the arena in which most BI vendors compete by adding and refining features to their solutions.
The general process of business intelligence is as follows:

  • Gathering data and organizing it through reporting
  • Turning it into meaningful information through analysis
  • Making actionable decisions aimed at fulfilling a strategic goal

Process Management

There are three different kinds of BPM frameworks available in the market today. Horizontal frameworks deal with design and development of business processes and are generally focused on technology and reuse. Vertical BPM frameworks focus on a specific set of coordinated tasks and have pre-built templates that can be readily configured and deployed. Full-service BPM suites have five basic components:

  • Process discovery and project scoping
  • Process modeling and design
  • Business rules engine
  • Workflow engine
  • Simulation and testing

SOA Practice

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is creating a lot of buzz across the IT industry. Propelled by standards-based technologies like XML, Web Services, and SOAP, SOA is quickly moving from pilot projects to mainstream applications critical to business operations.

One of the key standard accelerating the adoption of SOA is Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) for Web Services. BPEL enables organizations to automate their business processes by orchestrating services. It forces organizations to think in terms of services: Existing functionality is exposed as services. New applications are composed using services. Services are reused across different applications. Services everywhere!
