Our work in BIC

In Business Intelligence, we focus on enhancing the competitiveness, efficiency and productivity of organizations, as well as the overall work-related well-being. We help our clients to reach their goals in these fields by using the know-how provided in our toolkit: business intelligence, process management, robotic process automation, data analytics, AI, ERP and eBusiness.

At SAMK, we have gathered our research, development, and innovation activities into research centers. Business Intelligence forms one of these research entities. Research on Business Intelligence is concentrated at SAMK’s Business Intelligence Center BIC.
