Business Intelligence (BI) is the technology and practice of applying information to make Management and Operations Strategic and/or Tactical Actionable decisions.
When good Information is readily available in real time if/as needed, actions can be taken to run the Business or Organization optimally at high levels of performance.
Intelligent decision making is the Goal of Business Intelligence.
Result: Your business or organization is making decisions based on Facts, not Speculations, Hunches, Ancient Experience, or Whimsy.
Different Business Intelligence tools address management needs in different ways:
Reporting delivers regular, timely information, with the ability to author reports or queries to get specific details.
OLAP analysis compares and contrasts information against time, place, plans, and other factors to uncover trends.
