10 tips for getting started with decision intelligence

For organizations looking to move beyond stale reports, decision intelligence holds promise, giving them the ability to process large amounts of data with a sophisticated mix of tools such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to transform data dashboards and business analytics into more comprehensive decision support platforms.

Successful decision intelligence strategies, however, require an understanding of how organizational decisions are made, as well as a commitment to evaluate outcomes and manage and improve the decision-making process with feedback.
