Defining Social Business IntelligenceDecember 9, 2010 No Comments
At Yellowfin, we’ve just released a new version of our Business Intelligence (BI) solution – Yellowfin 5.1 Socialize, Visualize & Decide.
The release has a major focus on the quickly emerging area of Social BI, or as it is sometimes referred to as, collaborative decision-making (CDM) software.
Social BI is an illusive concept, and we found it difficult to define based on research alone. So we took matters into our own hands, and this is what we came up with:
Social BI: A working definition
CDM software and the concept of Social BI is about harnessing and applying the functions and features of social media to the enterprise to enable better CDM processes and bridge the gap between insight and action.
There are three main components to enterprise collaboration. These are:
- Sharing knowledge and content
- Discussing and overlaying knowledge on your business data
- Collectively deciding the best course of action
