Do you want to see significant success in your business? 
Then, use your data: Make your data work for you and make the right fact-based decisions. You can unveil surprising stories hidden in your existing data when you are curious and open-minded to find new knowledge.

Think big but start small – take the first step to implement your Business Intelligence (BI) solution today and make a significant difference in your business.

Make room to play with data

It is easy to get started with BI. Many employees reach their goals on their own after spending a short time with Power BI. As the software is tightly integrated with the company’s business systems, it is easy to get access to updated data, the main idea behind ‘self-service BI.’ 

Make the Power BI tool and organizational data readily available and accessible. The value of new insights you discover is compelling.

How do you measure the value of your BI investment?

Is it achievable and measurable? Yes, the value you gain from your BI investment is immense, but only when you know what you are measuring. This value depends on what you are looking for and what you intend to achieve with the insights you gain. You need to know your data to use it effectively. As you know, you cannot obtain the best results without having control over your data and investing in learning about the tools you use.

Build an integrated strategy

Make sure your dashboards and KPIs are closely linked to your mission, vision, and strategy - this is the mindset that feeds strategic, tactical, and operational activities. It creates a basis for you to gain insight into both new business opportunities and current situations. It also paves the way to possibilities that you can adapt, respond, and test quickly.

This practice ensures you weave the ‘red thread’ from your strategy to everyday operations. I have experienced delighted customers over the years when they see results. They have all experienced the added value of their BI solution in terms of their employees’ ability to make decisions independently. And their understanding that they are contributing positively to the organization’s mission and supporting the growth through their everyday activities. The employees did not have this understanding before, as they could only get these insights through their monthly and quarterly information meetings with the management.

If you measure everything, you measure nothing

Stay focused – target only a few relevant KPIs that are mission-critical and useful in adjusting behaviors and processes that support your growth and strategy.

The greatest joy and success for me is when I, together with my clients, ensure efficient implementation, higher user satisfaction, and realize a measurable profit on their investment.

Making use of your organisation's data is essential for staying competitive in any industry. Having a modern data platform is a must, and it is important that management makes the right decisions for their investments from the start. We generate ever increasing amounts of data with systems and tracking that covers almost all of our business processes. Therefore, being able to leverage that data via a modern data platform is a priority for most organisations. This article covers: • What business leaders need to know about modern data platforms and their benefits • How you can get started with a modern data platform Modern data platform is a term that's thrown around with little clarity or consistency. Depending on the author it can mean multiple things and cover various technologies. On top you'll also hear terms like lakehouse, data mesh and fabric which make it even more difficult to understand what one actually is. Therefore, we’ll explore a few clarifiers to define and explain a modern data platform in an understandable way.
The hype around the rise of generative AI technologies makes huge promises about the potential of the technology. Yet it would be fair to say the vast majority of organizations are only experimenting with the technology or using it in isolated use cases.
If you organize your data and use AI strategically, you can make better decisions faster. You can for example improve your market understanding and forecasting, optimize your maintenance or reduce food waste. Choose what is most important for you!
True magic happens when you deploy an AI/ML model into the real world, where it can make predictions, optimize processes and drive insightful decisions. It’s where theory meets reality and where algorithms start delivering tangible value. Whether you’re predicting customer behaviors, optimizing supply chains or diagnosing medical conditions, the deployment phase is where these innovations step out of the lab and into the heart of your operations.
As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) reshape industries and redefine possibilities, mastering the art of AI and ML model development and evaluation has never been more crucial. Behind every powerful AI or ML model lies strategic decisions, intricate algorithms and critical evaluations. Within the Model and Evaluate phases of the Columbus AI Innovation Lab, we delve into these aspects and how to use diverse metrics to evaluate a machine learning model’s performance, along with its strengths and weaknesses.
