niversity of Toronto researchers have received a $5 million grant from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada to lead the creation of the Business Intelligence Network (BIN), which is designed to improve information management systems for business applications. “Business intelligence means using information to make informed decisions,” says Toronto professor Renee Miller, BIN’s primary investigator. “Our goal is to provide new solutions for business, scientific, and government organizations to enable them to solve modern problems and make decisions using integrated, trustworthy, and up-to-date data.” BIN will create a system for enhancing collaboration between leading Canadian knowledge and information management researchers and Canadian business intelligence companies. “Through BIN, we will bring together organizations that are in the business of using, creating, and delivering business intelligence solutions, who need to strengthen their innovation pipeline,” Miller says. “Our network will provide a venue for engaging business and government organizations to articulate the real problems that limit their efficiency and burden them with costs.” In addition to the University of Toronto, researchers from the universities of Alberta, British Columbia, Ottawa, Waterloo, Carleton, and Dalhouise will be involved in the project, as well as researchers from IBM, SAP, Palomino, IC-Agency, and Zerofootprint.
