Process Oriented Business Intelligence

Today, I read one of the best BI articles I have seen in a long time. It was called “Process-Oriented BI: Navigating the Road of Continuous Improvement”. The essence of the article is about how far you should be able to take BI these days by:

2) Continuous Improvement Mindset
3) BI Capabilities of Operations
