    The importance of business intelligence — systems and tools used for strategic planning, data management, decision-making, and budgeting — is not lost on growing organizations. Yet, the suite of tools and services a company dedicates to harnessing it is often incomplete. For example, a marketing team might have an excellent lead-generation system, but a weak data analytics platform. Or, a company could be excellent at ideating and planning, but not-so-successful when it comes to implementation and execution, because they don’t have the right innovation management software.
