Make Sure Any BI Tool Fits Your Needs  

The last tip for choosing the right BI dashboard has to do with customization. There are plenty of off the shelf BI solutions such as the software that IBM offers, and there are customizable software options such as Yellowfin — which will build your BI platform to fit the exact specifications you require. There are myriad reasons for choosing either off the shelf or custom software to fulfill your BI needs, but whichever you choose, make sure that your suite is customizable to your specific needs (in this instance, customizable is synonymous with easy usability — meaning that you shouldn’t have to ask the IT department every time you want to run a report) and that it can be used unilaterally across departments.

As far as business buzzwords go, the terms Big Data, data visualization, data structure, predictive analytics and business intelligence all get thrown around with the frequency of a used car salesman putting together his best customer pitch. In fact, when it comes to acquiring a business intelligence tool, you might hear the mention of these terms ad nauseam. That being said, if you’re truly serious about implementing business intelligence technology into your workflow, then you need to be absolutely positive of the different initiatives that you want to fulfill.

Even if your business intelligence (BI) dashboard ends up looking professional and offers beautifully rendered graphs that you can use to wow your company’s CEO, it won’t mean anything unless you have the right data in the right dashboard. That’s why Himanshu Sareen, CEO of Icreon Tech, has compiled a list of the best practices for choosing a well-designed business intelligence dashboard.
