One Idea, So Many Names!
“Business Intelligence”: a term coined by Gartner in 1989 – Simply defined as using information effectively to make better
Gartner’s Emphasis Today: Corporate Performance Management – CPM means getting a better finger on the pulse of an organization to make a better, more accurate, and more timely assessment of how an organization is doing. Enterprises need to move away from asking, “How did we do last month or last quarter” to “How are we doing right now” as well as “How will we do next week”
Meta Group: Business Performance Management - Companies realize they have six different tools, but they do not have a consistent approach to results reporting, management reporting, planning and budgeting, etc.
