1 The Knowledge of Business Intelligence 34 th International Conference on Information Technology Interfaces June 2012 Clyde W. Holsapple 2012
2 The Knowledge of Business Intelligence Basic Proposition Business intelligence (BI) research and practice can benefit from careful study of knowledge management (KM) concepts and theory. Let s sketch out a KM perspective on BI
3 The Knowledge of Business Intelligence Perspectives can strongly influence Interpretation and analysis Design Implementation Application Fresh perspectives Stimulate Provoke Challenge
4 Business intelligence from a knowledge management perspective Superficial view The Knowledge of Business Intelligence How does it help us design, implement, apply BI? Does it stimulate, provoke, challenge our understanding of what BI is, or could be? Deep view Is there value to grounding BI initiatives in KM theory? Does it add clarity and context to planning and/or execution of BI initiatives? Can it foster BI creativity?
5 The Knowledge of Business Intelligence Here, we consider a deep KM perspective on the nature of BI Stimulate better understanding of BI and its context Provoke new ways of thinking about BI issues Challenge to expand BI initiatives and research along lines suggested by KM theory Furnish a lens that lets us see BI as a knowledge management phenomenon
6 Traditional Perspectives on BI An automatic system to disseminate information to the various sections of any organization utilize dataprocessing machines for auto-abstracting and autoencoding of documents and for creating interest profiles for each of the action points in an organization. Both incoming and internally generated documents are automatically abstracted, characterized by a word pattern, and sent automatically to appropriate action points shows the flexibility of such a system in identifying known information, in finding who needs to know it and in disseminating it efficiently either in abstract form or as a complete document. H. P. Luhn A Business Intelligence System IBM Journal of Research and Development, 2(4) 1958, 314.
7 Traditional Perspectives on BI Simon says that intelligence is a crucial aspect of decision making Gathering information Relevant Important Paying attention Problem finding Recognize need to take action Watch for occasion to make a decision Also, there are design and choice aspects of decision making, which both depend on intelligence H. A. Simon, The New Science of Management Decision, Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-Hall 1960, 1977
8 Traditional Perspectives on BI Business intelligence is central to many decisions made in the firm real revolution is in the efforts to institutionalize intelligence activities in the hope of establishing business intelligence as a legitimate organizational function Business intelligence is a process Raw data => Intelligence involving 5 tasks Collect data about the environment Evaluate for usefulness, reducing it to relevant & reliable Store data (and intelligence) in a way that allows for rapid selection Analyze/interpret/digest to get a sense of a situation or to answer a specific question Disseminate the intelligence within the organization to makers of strategic decisions T. Gilad & B. Gilad Business Intelligence The Quiet Revolution Sloan Management Review 27(4) 1986, 53-61
9 Traditional Perspectives on BI BI is an analytical process Transforms raw data into intelligence that is of strategic relevance Needs continuous monitoring of customers, competitors, suppliers, actors and forces in other fields There are various types of business intelligence Customer intelligence Competitor intelligence Market intelligence Technological intelligence Product intelligence Environmental intelligence K. Tyson Business Intelligence-- Putting It All Together, Lombard, IL: Leading Edge Publications 1986
10 Traditional Perspectives on BI H. Dresner (1989) suggests the term "business intelligence" to refer to concepts and methods to improve business decision making by using fact-based support systems H. Watson explains that BI refers to a broad category of applications, technologies, and processes for gathering, storing, accessing and analyzing data to help business users make better decisions H. J. Watson "Tutorial: Business Intelligence - Past, Present and Future," Communications of the AIS 25(Article 39) 2009,
11 Traditional Perspectives on BI BI is defined as an intelligence process that includes a series of systematic activities, being driven by the specific information needs of decision makers and the objective of achieving competitive advantage. Other intelligence concepts are considered as components of BI V.H. Pirttimäki Conceptual analysis of business intelligence South African Journal of Information Management 9(2) 2007, 1-17
12 Traditional Perspectives on BI What is it? Processes and activities Techniques Tools What does it do? Converts data into intelligence Monitor, gather, analyze/interpret, store, selective access, disseminate Why? Better decision making, competitiveness What is the level? Strategic, operational Where is the focus? External, internal What is the mode? Quantitative, qualitative
13 So, what is BI to YOU? The answer influences what you do as a BI practitioner, researcher, or educator A knowledge management perspective may contribute to your answer
14 A Knowledge Management Perspective Call for integrating BI and KM distinguish between BI and KM to clarify the role of each in a business environment Findings BI focuses on explicit knowledge, but KM encompasses both tacit and explicit knowledge. Both concepts promote learning, decision making, and understanding. Yet, KM can influence the very nature of BI itself. BI should be viewed as a subset of KM R. T. Herschel, N. E. Jones, "Knowledge management and business intelligence: The importance of integration" Journal of Knowledge Management 9(4) 2005, 45 55
15 A Knowledge Management Perspective Implications for BI Integration establishes an expanded role for BI the role of BI in knowledge improvement Suggests that the effectiveness of a BI will, in the future, be measured based on how well it promotes and enhances knowledge how well it improves the mental model(s) and understanding of the decision maker(s) how well it improves their decision making and hence firm performance R. T. Herschel, N. E. Jones, "Knowledge management and business intelligence: The importance of integration" Journal of Knowledge Management 9(4) 2005, 45 55
16 KM Perspective for BI If we accept that BI inhabits a KM world, It follows that BI is related to and consistent with knowledge management concepts and theory We may find that BI is in a fertile field for growth, development, and yields of increased value Let s sketch out a KM ontology and KM theory that you can use as a perspective for Stimulating, provoking, and challenging your appreciation of BI Enriching your answer of What does BI mean to me?
17 An Organization s Knowledge Triangle PROCESSORS human & computer RESOURCES schema & content That which is conveyed by usable representations (Allen Newell) PROCESSES practices & technologies Problem Finding Problem Solving
23 Knowledge Management An entity s systematic and deliberate efforts to expand, cultivate, and apply available knowledge in ways that add value to the entity, in the sense of positive results in accomplishing its objectives or fulfilling its purpose.
24 Knowledge Management The RIGHT definition of knowledge management An organization s initiatives to ensure that the RIGHT knowledge gets to the RIGHT processor in the RIGHT format at the RIGHT time in the RIGHT place for the RIGHT cost with preservation of RIGHT relationships in alignment with its mission, vision, and values
25 Knowledge Management Is this also the RIGHT definition of BI? Technology-centric initiatives? Digital knowledge representations? Computer-generated visualizations? The KM perspective on BI Appears to be consistent with traditional perspectives Complements and supplements Offers a systematic, unifying characterization of BI May, upon serious thought, reveal BI potentials yet unrealized
26 Knowledge Management But, does Knowledge Management matter? Organization structures explicitly recognize KM KM services and technologies Cases and anecdotes Surveys of practitioners Does superior KM performance predict superior financial performance?
27 Knowledge Management Does Knowledge Management Pay Off? H1: Superior KM Performance is Positively Related to Higher Profit Ratios H2: Superior KM Performance is Positively Related to Lower Cost Ratios H3: Superior KM Performance is Positively Related to Higher Market Measures (e.g.,tobin s q Ratio)
28 Knowledge Chain Theory What underpins superior KM? The Knowledge Chain Theory Identifies 9 activities that may be performed in ways that result in greater competitiveness First order activities Acquire Assimilate Select Generate Emit Second order activities Measure Control Coordinate Lead
29 Knowledge Chain Theory By strengthening any/all of the 9 KM activities KM is strengthened Competitiveness/performance is better supported This may be sustainable Activity performed in ways that are rare, not easy to imitate, not subject to substitution, and yield value BI may be an essential ingredient to implementing a strong link that supports sustainable advantage Other legs of the KM triangle may also give support Knowledge resources Knowledge processors
30 Knowledge Chain Theory The knowledge chain s PAIR model KM activity implementations may contribute to competitiveness in one or more of four directions Productivity (output/input) Agility (alertness, response-ability) Innovation (novel products, methods) Reputation (stature, trust, quality) There may be trade-offs among these Organization strategy may emphasize a PAIR direction(s) KM, through the knowledge chain, can be instrumental in implementing the strategy Tie BI to the PAIR model

32 Business Intelligence Business Intelligence: The integrated use of knowledge, technology, methods to enhance organizations abilities for sense making, predicting, evaluating, and decision making leading to more effective performance by these organizations and their supply chains
33 Complex Firms and Supply Chains Organizational Effectiveness Sense Making Forecasting Evaluating Decision Making BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE Knowledge Technology Methods
34 Business Intelligence Why is BI important? In today s dynamic global economy, organizations must confront daunting challenges to their effectiveness and even to their very survival recognize and screen opportunities and then actualize the potentials Business Intelligence is a knowledge-based key for doing so Through incorporation into knowledge chain activities In ways that advance organizational effectiveness
35 Dynamic Global Economy Pathfinding Multitasking Threats Challenges Competition Turbulence Time Pressures Opportunities Complex Firms and Supply Chains Relationships Business Intelligence Breakthroughs Openings Capture a Market Slice Organizational Effectiveness Global Reach Leap Ahead
36 Toward a Science of Competitiveness Given today s inescapable complexities, challenges, and opportunities Competitiveness is a never-ending, non-trivial pursuit It demands a coherent, holistic intellectual foundation We close with a call for development and application of a Science of Competitiveness (SoC) Some thoughts in that direction Integrate what is known about competitiveness across disciplines, research, practice Its nature, antecedents, consequences Fostering it and sustaining it Business Intelligence has a role to play in SoC
