With smart meters, that same utility might obtain 700,000 meter readings a minute.

Analytics: a tool executives and managers need to embrace. MWorld, J Am Manage Assoc, Winter 2012À2013. 38 Business Intelligence Strategy and Big Data Analytics More broadly, we previously defined BI as an umbrella term that encompasses provision of relevant reports, scorecards, dashboards, email alerts, prestructured user-specified queries, ad hoc query capabilities, multidimensional analyses, statistical analyses, forecasts, models, and/or simulations to business users for use in increasing revenues, reducing costs, or both.

For example, if the performance dashboard identifies product movement volume through a new channel is 30% below the targeted volume, the analytical dashboard is used to drill-down into the root causes of the variance. In this hypothetical, the analytical dashboard allows an analyst to see that the pricing used in an established channel was carried over to the new channel, and that has hindered product uptake. Armed with this information, corrective action strategies are devised quickly and efficiently.
