Business intelligence (BI) is a set of concepts and methods to improve business decision making through fact-based data. In broad terms, BI effectively enables the accessing, analyzing, forecasting, reporting, and sharing of information needed to achieve corporate objectives. Search can be thought of as BI for enterprise information. When properly tuned, a search solution abbreviates the time it takes to find the right information the first time and thereby enables many of the same information management efforts found in business intelligence. In this webcast, we demonstrate how easily and efficiently an organization can collect, analyze, publish, and collaborate on information that drives corporate strategy. If you need better access to information about your business, then join this webcast and learn how the Microsoft BI and search solutions can help you find information about your business you never knew you had.
