Modern, smart businesses use the full power of information and knowledge to reach excellent performance. Intelligence is not just about the ability to obtain, model and understand information and processes, but also about smart decisions, the capability to analyze, discover and manage knowledge, the power to adapt to new situations and events in the networked economy, and the ability to perform effectively according to business rules and policies in order to innovate and create value.
