The BI Survey 2011

"How do successful businesses use software to drive their decision-making?"

Maxmetrics and the DHBW Mosbach present insights in the results of their latest BI study. Businesses around the world were asked to benchmark how technology is being used to help make better decisions. The results revealed that those companies who were using more advanced technology to drive business decisions were reaping the rewards of stronger financial performance. Two years ago, the primary uses of decision-making software centered around goals, objectives, and strategies, but has the recent economic turmoil changed the way companies use technology? What are the most agile and competitive businesses doing with their information?
