Business Intelligence is the art and science of transforming raw data into meaningful information [Wikipedia].
You and your colleagues work with data from various origins, using a variety of tools: different spreadsheets, databases and management information systems.
Data integration tools let you connect to multiple sources, extract the data you need, transform it into a standardised format, and load it into a single data warehouse. And repeat it as often as you like, to keep it up-to-date.
You defined M&E protocols, log frames, quality control, and key performance indicators, to keep track of your goals and progress towards them.
Your data warehouse is modelled to reflect the way you look at your organisation and your work, and how you keep track of your progress, results and impacts.
You, your colleagues, donors, partner organisations and constituency all want to get the right information, at the right time, the way they like it.
With the right filters and views, everyone can get the information they need, as on-demand or regularly sent reports, as at-a-glance dashboards, or as ad-hoc analyses to explore and download data for further research.
