There has been much discussion in the media space about business intelligence (BI) and how it can help drive a host of key objectives. BI encompasses the tools (usually dashboards) that use a company’s data to improve business decisions and performance. For a publisher, that could mean helping, in real-time, journalists focus on content categories that bring in the biggest audience and/or the greatest revenue. It could help the marketing team identify and invest in their best performing digital/social channels. BI could help management track KPIs throughout the organization more efficiently (key performance indicators). And though many publishers have dashboards that provide a very focused set of data (like Chartbeat or Google Analytics), a true BI solution ties otherwise disconnected data sets together, revealing new insights and providing new benefits at all levels of an organization.
