Smart decision-making: AVEVA Insight | BI Gateway

Posted: January 07, 2022

Business intelligence (BI) has emerged in recent decades to give stakeholders new insights into business operations and help them make informed decisions. These insights were once the domain of experts and department leads and were exclusive to operational and manufacturing activities, focusing on accounting, finance, and logistics.

However, thanks to new technologies and advanced computing power, BI data models and tools are now available to a greater number of users. Most businesses now use BI solutions to consolidate the operations data they have at their disposal.

Reliable, relevant, and timely information in context delivers continuous improvement and agility

Profitable industry requires reliable systems and data to support the evolving needs of people across the organization. It’s not sustainable to piece together disparate software when there’s no guarantee it will be interoperable in the future, whether that’s six years or six months from now. The systems you use to make critical decisions must incorporate technologies that connect workers and maintain operational reliability; a single digital thread unlocks your teams’ potential for collaboration.  

AVEVA Insight makes business intelligence cloud-enabled as a digital intelligence component
