Power of Data – Importance of BI

Posted by Venkatakrishnan J on September 22, 2007

I was going through the following presentation by Hans Rosling, a renowned professor of World Health. An amazing presentation which makes anyone understand the value of data that is hidden behind the behemoths called databases. It would make even more sense if you can compare this to the importance of Business Intelligence or the Intelligence derived from various Reporting toolsets. Amazing video. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know the power of data.

What i like in this video is the 2 main aspects

1. The way it was presented.

2. The analysis that Hans has applied on top of the data.

What BI tools can do is, exactly this. Give a new perspective of the data that we already have in our databases.
