This whitepaper provides a guide to the world of BI and Analytics and how organizations can leverage the power of Big Data to improve and innovate, to reach their objectives, and to outperform their competition. Industry research and experience from CGI’s day-today customer engagements indicate that there is a steadily increasing need to leverage all information available to an organization to improve business results.

In a world of uncertainty and economic challenges, Information Management (IM), Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics have become critical to survive. The importance of monitoring and measurement of the performance of an organization, knowing customers behavior and complying with regulatory demands has become evident. Well implemented BI and Analytics solutions deliver competitive advantage to an organization. Conversely, organizations that do not use information effectively to guide decision making are at a distinct disadvantage, and the gap will only grow wider.

This whitepaper demonstrates the potential business value and key challenges to overcome, illustrated with best practices from CGI client engagements. It will define the core capabilities needed to succeed in IM, BI and Analytics initiatives.
