Decision intelligence: turning hotel analytics into action

Image description

BI (Business Intelligence) is an organization's ability to track the flow of data to identify opportunities, mitigate risks and optimize the way it does business. Most companies – not just hotels – have not yet reached this optimal level of BI maturity. Many have automated data collection, reporting, and in some cases data visualization. But that doesn't mean they mobilize data into action. Very often, users only use their BI platforms to schedule reports that are emailed to them in their inbox, but reports alone do not constitute business intelligence. So they are still stuck in static spreadsheet mode when it comes to decision support. More advanced users use BI tools to increase their speed of discovery within the BI portal, but then spend hours re-sharing and explaining their findings to others not in the same environment. They often have long discussions with colleagues to find out, "Why don't your numbers match my numbers??" (Weekday vs. Date, company profiles vs. Negotiated price codes, timing of data collection, filters by different dimensions – possibilities abound!).


E-bike vacation in Germany

Where to go in Germany for an e-bike vacation?

E-bike vacations in Germany are varied: In the north of Germany, it is the flat cycle paths that you can comfortably ride along on an electric bike during your vacation. In the south, it gets steeper in the hilly foothills of the Alps or even in the foothills of the Alps themselves and the nature can be enjoyed from the bike saddle of the ebike especially.

And in between there are many valleys, where the numerous river bike paths allow e-bike tours for several days. Sea, mountains, lakes and valleys – the choice for an e-bike vacation is large!


Travel update: From Yangon to Vientiane

We have moved on. A week ago we left Myanmar and flew from Yangon to Bangkok (with Nok Air for only 30 euros per person). Because the Thai food is so tasty (papaya salad!) and because I had to go to the doctor, we stayed a few more days in Bangkok.

We spent the night at the Penang Palace for 20 Euro per night. The hotel is located in a super area where we hardly saw other tourists (MRT stop Queen Sirikit National Convention Center). In addition, there is a huge market with a huge selection of fruits and other delicacies. And it is also not far to the city center. A really great area.

Hallein, Bad Ischl and Radstadt are three of the 14 , which are characterized by listed town centers, their own charm and a maximum population of 45.000 inhabitants.

Once over the Kurfurstendamm

A boulevard of splendor, an artists' meeting place and an entertainment mile: Kurfurstendamm is Berlin's most famous street and one of the top addresses for tourists.

Streets rarely become tourist attractions. Fifth Avenue in New York has done it, and the Champs Elysees in Paris are among them. Germany cannot keep up. But if anything, Berlin's Ku'damm is one of the world's boulevards.


The most beautiful resorts for party vacations in Ibiza

Ibiza and party – they belong together like pot and lid. This does not mean, however, that the island is only something for young and young-at-heart tourists who like to go to one of the many discos or clubs in the evening. The island, which belongs to the Balearic Islands, also offers many beautiful areas, where it is much quieter.

No matter with what intention you start your Ibiza vacation, you can look forward to sunny days. The climate on Ibiza promises temperatures of 22 to 29 degrees Celsius, especially during the main tourist season. The sun shines up to five hours a day even in winter. In the months of May to August there are more than ten hours of sunshine every day. And the water is also pleasantly warm at this time of year with temperatures ranging from 13 to 25 degrees Celsius. You should expect rain on the Balearic island especially in the period from October to January, although the Ibiza climate statistics even for this time shows a maximum of seven rainy days.
