• A corporate investigation can involve Business intelligence (BI) to help corporate executives and business managers make more informed business decisions about their company or companies they are considering doing business with. BI encompasses a wide variety of tools, applications and methodologies that enable organizations to collect data from internal systems and external sources, prepare it for analysis, develop and run queries against the data, and create reports, dashboards and data visualizations to make the analytical results available to corporate decision makers as well as operational workers. Business intelligence investigations may also involve Secret Shopping that may be covert in nature.
