Business Intelligence (BI) Services enable business owners across NIH to capitalize on the robust information sources available by providing a central repository for data from systems that manage NIH operations.  BI at CIT extracts information from multiple enterprise sources, standardizes or transforms the information, and stores or loads the information to a common, united format.  This central, secure repository can be used by customers to extract and view information in a variety of formats such as standard reports, ad-hoc, dashboards, scorecards and alerts to users.  Data elements are collected and integrated through reporting tools to enable users to query, report, and analyze information to meet business needs.  An example of BI at NIH is the NIH Business Information System, also known as nVision.
