If age is catching up with any business input, it has to be Business Intelligence (BI). The ever-popular two-dimensional charts and spreadsheets littering the desks of production heads, sales managers, procurement executives and ¬nancial chiefs are being retired quickly. They are being replaced with sophisticated dashboards, visualizations, reports and query engines. These are not new tools. They have been around, within the domain of IT specialists at very large corporations. But now, they are available to business leaders, small business owners and just about anyone keen to know industry trends, spot business problems and opportunities, improve decision making and boost operational ef-ciencies.
