Call for papers: Operational Business Intelligence

Business Intelligence (BI) can take many different forms. In general, we can say that BI is a computerised system for helping make decisions in an analytic-based and prospective approach. BI systems help firms’ coherent and data-based decisions-making. Most companies using BI for strategic and tactical decision support. In a competitive and hostile environment such as the current one, it is no longer enough for the managers to make the right choices, they must also make and implement them as quickly as possible. In this context, BI support is needed for optimising business operations. Such systems are called operational BI.
