The demand for information has steadily increased over the years as organizations invest in capturing and processing more data to improve decision-making and efficiency. The goal of BI and analytics has always been to empower organizations to make decisions based on facts, and that's still a fundamental objective today. However, Information Builders believes to truly capitalize on data assets, organizations must give every employee access to the information needed to make fact-based decisions on the job.

Based on this premise, the company's experts have published Organizational Intelligence, which explains how improving the decision-making process through information dissemination can raise organizational intelligence and market performance. Through an examination of the evolution of enterprise data access and technologies, as well as detailed case studies, the book outlines how organizations can build an overall strategy for organizational intelligence, and how to tailor the approach for different constituencies to maximize adoption and value.

Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders, said:
"Despite advances in the field and cutting-edge technologies like WebFOCUS that support decision-making, studies show that BI and analytics have only achieved about 22 percent penetration within organizations. In this book, we examine why adoption isn't more pervasive and reveal how organizations can engage the remaining 78 percent. Senior executives, data practitioners, and business analysts can expect to get practical advice on leveraging information as a business asset. This is crucial for enabling the fact-based decision-making necessary for everything from data monetization, process enhancements and better customer experience, to business growth."
