How Microsoft Dynamics NAV Makes BI More Accessible to Users
What's the real purpose of Business Intelligence (BI)?
That was the subject as the NAV User Group Forum 2009 kicked off with a general session, round table discussions and breakout sessions.
At an executive roundtable, "Business Intelligence: Monitoring the Pulse of Your Organization," Nigel Geary, founder of PrecisionPoint Software, spoke to a group of executives about business intelligence (BI).
He explained that BI gives users the tools to make better decisions.
"I think BI's aim is to make the user self-sufficient," Geary said to a group of surprised-looking attendees. "If the sales and marketing person can do their own BI, than that is a healthier company and it releases IT to do other things."
