One Version of the Truth?
Data resides in disparate systems cobbled together over the years
Duplication of data in different systems, frequently conflicting – Which data is accurate? MIS reports causing confusion – Which report has the correct data?
Spreadsheet Hell! - Multiple spreadsheet databases created by users - Slow process; Prone to Error - Multiple Versions of the Truth
The goal of BI systems is to pull data from all internal systems AND external sources to present a SINGLE version of the Truth.
