The Problem – Delays in OBI Processes
Increased competition has compelled companies to react faster to changing conditions, standards, and customers’ needs. As a result, BI has been required to help drive and optimize daily operations and decision-making. This type of BI is referred to as Operational Business Intelligence (OBI). OBI complements traditional BI systems by enabling more people to share more information to knowledgeably make decisions and solve problems before daily challenges become irreparable. I/O bottlenecks caused by data latency impede OBI applications’ ability to critical information into decision-makers’ hands, slowing down operations.
