BI and PM components 

 

 

BI and PM are not monoliths. In our definition, any PM initiative is made up of at least two of the following components: 

  • BI products—Tools that provide information gathering, analytics, and presentation of data to end users 
  • Analytic infrastructure—Infrastructure to store, organize, and prepare data for reporting and analysis  
  • Dashboard and scorecards—Tools and/or applications that help businesses track key performance indicators (KPIs) by providing a unified view of organizational performance data and options on a timed or near real-time and integrated basis. 
  • Planning, budgeting, and forecasting (PBF) products—Applications that provide a business with a high degree of flexibility to align financial and/or operational plans to its specific enterprise or departmental planning processes 
  • Analytic applications—Delivered applications that accurately gather, unify, coordinate, and analyze company-wide or content-specific data. Financial consolidation and reporting is an example of this type of application
