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.
