From Data to Business Intelligence. #DrJoseWhiteboard

This graphic shows the steps to convert data into Business Intelligence. We go from big data warehouses to do data mining and extract the pieces that we will filter, analyze and store as records in databases.

We then organize, sort, and clean records to produce information.  We start the process of selecting useful information that we can convert into intelligence. Similar to military intelligence, we study this meaningful information to produce business intelligence for our organization. This business intelligence  allows leaders and managers to make decisions keeping the competitive advantage. Business intelligence is also useful to expand to new markets, explore new countries, and try new systems. Two important considerations are: Control Information Overload and Validate Sources. These will help to have better Data at the Base. It is called “database” for a reason. We are using this graphic and video in our courses. #DrLepervancheCampus

This 60 Minutes segment was more than a year in the making. Producer Henry Schuster tells the TED Blog that the idea for the story snuck up on him and co-producer Rachael Kun Morehouse.
