About this paper
People have long preached the benefits of relying on data and insights from business intelligence (BI) and analytics to help make better and timelier decisions. A reliance on data from these tools was expected to deliver better financial performance. A global survey of 646 executives, managers and professionals across all industries and geographies revealed a significant, albeit subtle, change in decision-making processes and their use of these analytics/BI tools. This report examines the results of that survey and explores how analytics is improving — and changing — the way decisions get made.
