Dealing with the upsurge of information is certainly one of the most significant tasks of the information systems nowadays. Extracting information out of the immense data pools is a task assigned to information systems managers, who can have various titles and tasks. Companies are increasingly investing in information systems, since they believe that information systems will provide them with information which will position them on the market; with which they will acquire advantage over their competition and which will increase their profits and chances for survival in today’s global competitiveness. The era of globalization took its toll. The advent of BI systems although indispensable is lagging behind in the Republic of Macedonia. Experts attribute this to the way in which Macedonian companies were restructured and inadequately managed. Those companies which have successfully dealt with the new dynamic circumstances managed to make use of the BI tools, which have “reflected” the organizational readiness for implementation of the global companies in the Republic of Macedonia. It goes without saying that this refers to the most lucrative businesses, i.e. the businesses that cannot go without using highly sophisticated BI tools and which use vizualization in the presentation of information. The objective of this paper is to elaborate on a study on utilization of BI tools in the Republic of Macedonia and to give a review of BI software tools which have been implemented so far by the Macedonia companies and to make predictions about the utilization of these tools in the future in the Republic of Macedonia.
