question 1
Question #1
  • Explain how Ben & Jerry’s is using business intelligence tools to remain successful and competitive in a saturated market.
    • Ben & Jerry’s is using BI tools to track all of their ingredients so when a customer calls with a concern or question they can look up that specific pint of ice cream and where all the ingredients came from and correct the issue.
    • They are using BI tools to meet the needs of their customers and to constantly improve their products.
question 2
Question #2
  • Identify why information cleansing is critical to California Pizza Kitchen’s business intelligence tool’s success.
    • I think that information cleansing is important for California Pizza Kitchen so they can provide the most important information in real time for their stores. Since there are 130 restaurants all over world BI tools provides the fastest and most accurate way for the restaurants to communicate with each other.
question 3
Question #3
  • Illustrate why 100 percent accurate and complete information is impossible for Noodles & Company to obtain.
    • It is impossible for Noodles & Company to have 100 percent accurate and complete information because there are over 70 restaurants throughout the U.S. and the likely hood that all of those restaurants reporting 100 percent complete and accurate information is every unlikely; therefore, the information accessed through their website will always have a certain margin of error.

Question #4
  • Describe how each of the companies above is using BI to gain a competitive advantage.
    • Ben & Jerry’s is using BI tools to ensure that they have the best ingredients in their ice cream and if in some rare case their ice cream isn’t perfect they can correct the problem quickly.
    • California Pizza Kitchen is using BI so all of their restaurants can have access to the most up to date information for forecasting as well as the financial state of the company
    • Noodles & Companyis using BI to connect all of their restaurants, so every manager can access the latest sales, marketing, human resources and financial information available for the company.
