Is BI Software Intellgent Enough?

The short answer is, "no, it isn't."

Software itself will not help your business move forward unless the people who use it understand both the software and your business. One key factor that is missing from a lot of BI training is giving analysts training in all aspects of the business. People need to understand how departments interact in order to supply relevant information.

Asking analysts to dump information you request onto a spreadsheet will likely result in failure. Either failure to be able to utilize your data or failure to keep talented analysts employed. Remember, the best BI software in the world is useless without talented people using it.
