The Role of Collaboration in Business Intelligence (BI)

Collaboration is the main technology that information workers use to discover, access and share corporate and external information for business decision making. The growing use of social computing and mobile technologies add even more power to collaborative applications for information gathering and sharing. It is, therefore, crucial that BI applications and systems support and exploit the collaborative environment. The key question is, “How do organizations combine BI and collaborative technologies to provide the best benefits to information workers?”

EMA VP of Research, Shawn Rogers, Intelligent Solutions President, Claudia Imhoff, and BI Research President Colin White will help answer this question, as well as reveal key findings from “The Role of Collaboration in Business Intelligence” Research Report during this Webinar. Attendees will receive the research report.
