Business Intelligence Models
Models play an important role in Business Intelligence for analyzing goals, trends, and outcomes. Depending on the unique perspectives on business processes, the analysis of target results, and the availability of data, intelligence models can significantly impact manageability.
Data models provide an in-depth view of how the business operates, presenting data in a manner that is intuitive and easily understood. Creating a good data model specifically for business analysis is vital because these goals tend to differ when compared to databases running a transactional application. For example, a simple and optimized method to collect data will likely suffice for organizations looking to record sales.
However, if a company wants to truly analyze sales, a data model optimized to query, aggregate, and report data in significant volume may be required.
In short, the success of a BI program can hinge on an organization’s ability to develop the most accurate model based on its unique needs and goals.
