Why Business Intelligence Makes Sense for Midsize Companies


Business intelligence—or decision support—allows you to better understand, analyze, and predict what’s occurring within your company.

Business Services and Consulting


There are several ways to define the business services and consulting industry, but they all make a clear distinction between business services (services a client cannot or does not want to perform in-house) and consulting (services that will improve a client's activities).

However, the line between the two types is sometimes blurry. For instance, a company may provide shipping logistics services for a client (or for the client's clients), in the sense that it handles the shipping of goods for the client; but it can also provide consulting services (or extend its own logistics services) to help the client improve the transportation system already in place.
