Extend the Possibilities of BI

I initially bought a Nintendo Wii thinking it would be a fun gaming console to entertain the kids. Little did I know then about how much impact the product would have on me as it evolved.

When Wii Fit came along I learned that there’s nothing like a video game telling you you’re overweight to motivate you to exercise. When we added Wi-Fi to our home, we started using the Wii to surf the Web and join the game’s social network. And now we even watch movies and TV shows on it.

Similarly, forward-thinking organizations are finding ways to get more out of their business intelligence (BI) investments. As Colin White explains in his recent Teradata Magazine feature “Extend Your Reach,” the key is implementing a decision framework. Doing so enables you to bring BI to more users and uncover new uses to improve your business.

Maybe a BI dashboard feature will be next for the Wii, or dare I speculate, Bii.
