In today’s economy, businesses need quality insights driven by accurate data more than ever. Yet many IT organizations struggle to provide easy-to-access data stores with the right analytic capabilities, not to mention integrated systems with all the metrics different business users need.

SiliconIndia is organizing the Business Intelligence Conference on Feb 12th in Chennai. The conference offered 11 sessions, delivered by the people who know BI best — the experts who design, build and support the products.
One of the speakers, Shankar Radhakrishna, Senior Solutions Architect, HCL Technologies said, “The world of Business Intelligence is going through a transformational change where data initiatives moves to the center of an enterprise and empowers all departments and functions, with actionable intelligence. This is made possible by what is emerging in the space of BI - Evolution of Advance Analytics, Unstructured Data Integration, Social Intelligence, Predictive Modeling and Analytics, Mobile Analytics etc.”

Speaking on some of the BI Softwares that help BI solutions for any business, John Soliveres, Managing Director and Co-founder, Quick Report Software said, “For SMEs, the BI software MyReport can adapt their analysis and reporting requirements without wasting financial technical resources.” Giving more insights on BI tools, Rao Yerramilli from Capgemini said, “All BI tools and methodology are dependent on Data. For data to be useful and correctly identified for BI purposes there must be association of data with meta data and context. In order to establish the credibility of the out put of BI there must be data lineage with Master Data sources feeding the models. Business Intelligence no matter how exotic tool delivers is as good as the Quality Data goes in. Quality data and quality BI can only be achieved only when Master Data and Meta Data are seamlessly integrated into BI engine and models. These are the take away from the presentation”.
