Business Intelligence Buzz Words: Write Back

Filter By Topic


Write back: is a term used in relation to Business Intelligence. It relates to the ability to manually input figures directly into the Business Intelligence tool.

Unlike CALUMO, some BI tools are read only. This means users can only interact and look at data. These tools can't be used for what-If analysis, budgeting, forecasting or planning — a separate tool, like Excel, is needed for that (and Excel is not the best tool for budgeting!!). The data is then uploaded into the Business Intelligence tool.
