Basics of business intellgence
The basic components of business intellignce are thering storing analysing and
providing access to data (feimans,coarly S.W 2009)
6aytharing data this is concem with collecting or acessing data which can the be
wsed to inform deusion making, 6athering data can comein many format and
basically refers to automated measurement and collectioon of performance data [4]
for example these can come from transaction system that keeps logs of past
transections point of sate system web site, software production system that
mensure and track quality etc.a major challenge of gathenng data is making sure
that the relevant data quality is not controlled at the data gatherning stage then it
can jeopardise the entire BI effort that might follows. The old adage should always
be remembered garbage in garbage out[4].
Storing data storing data is conccrnect with making sure the data is filled and
stored in appropratie way to ensueere it can be found and use for analying and
reporting when storing data the same basic prinaciples apply that you would use to
store physical goods. Says book in alibrary you are trying to frid most logical
shucture that will allow you to easly and use the data the advatage of modern
satabase (offericalled the data warchma) because of large vollumes of data is that
they allow multi dimensional format so you can store the same data under
offerent categories.[4]
Analyaing data: the next component of bt is analysing the data there we take the
data has been gatheried and inspcets and transform or model it inorder to gain new
insight that will support decistion making in our business. Accision analysis comes
in many offerent format and approacheer,both puantitativerand qualitative

thanlysis sechnigues includes the use of statistical tools,data ininng approaches as
well as viscial analytic and even analysis of unstructured data such as text or
pictures [4]
Providing accro : in order to support decicion making the decuscion making need
to have acess to the data acess is needed to perform thalysis or loview the results
of the analysis. The format is provided by latest software tools that allow end- uses
to perform data analysis white the latter is provided through reporting each board
and seore card applications.[4]

There basic stages are represented sehenstically as shouwn below:

With reference to www. commecting business via cloudis vary
imporatant as far as networking is connem is it boosting up business with
less has bwcome the focal point in business networking [13] it has
increased the amount of information tant is being pased access the networking
from one location to the other [14] business networking via cloud has always beeb
importance but its importance is incrcasingly becoming importance as band with
intensive application move to the clould.
According to lassica is 2009 for one to connect business to the cloud other
folowing should be laken into considerstions :
Frist determine how much data you are storing at yopur celocation or cloud
facility to decide to whether you need a provied network or could utilge a service
such ad VPN overfiber internet would serve organisation fric.when one begin to
reach higher lever of usege in yourdatacentreitiscriticl toreach yourserver (and
applications) withdedicatedservice such as lombfibe,100mbfiber .or ifbfiber
internet to thedata centre
Secondly: one must consider ahich camers are on-net at your organiaturuaddress,
and which camreis are on-net at your cloud or colocation faculity . onnet refers to
whither or not a provide had services such as fiber internet built direcitly in to :
Building when you leverage on onnet providerr you directly commect their
network back bone by passing all other providers and removing the last smile
acess provider that provides the forlist asen to the cameir intermet services and can
provide inexpensive ethernet.

The use will gain instant acess into which camier are at or near your building
and what type of servicess each provider has available certain provider such as to
trlrvom are great for point to point circuits that connects a private service to your
data centre.
Ceelan J 2009said before adoptino all thismethod stated above some
guidelines has to be followed these are:
Create a requrement list: the aguirement list of 17 dependente tasks your
business does today and what you are planning to do in fufure then you will know

Behonest with your self about your regurement : create a realiste checklist of
what you need from system but somefores small business owness always dream

reason that may not be material. Secunty is one example, many business owners
claim that they are not sure if ther data is secured the fruth is list cloud is
substaticilly more secure than servers setting in tour office [5] cloud providers
ensure that secunty are lop provity so the sate so stored are highy protected relying
on secunty of the cloud is akin to protution your behind huge vault. Storing it is a
drawer,it not possible to guard that drawer day and hight which also running your
business your cloud provider however protectd and safe ouar your business vital
