Data + Information +Intelligence


Enterprise Intelligence (EI) represents the sensory system of an enterprise execution engine. Just like a human body the nervous system has fine sensors to capture the raw data, format it in right shape, process it to create actionable information and transmit it in the right quantities to the right destination at the right time. EI is a bigger subject than business intelligence. It goes beyond hard-data, and also handles the qualitative information. It look at the external environment and competition. It includes commentary, interpretations and judgments.
