WHAT IS BI?
Business Intelligence (BI), according to Gartner, the global leader in technology research and IT services, is an umbrella term that includes the applications, infrastructure and tools, and best practices that enable access to and analysis of information to improve and optimize decisions and performance. In basic terms Business intelligence (BI) simplifies information discovery and analysis, making it possible for decision-makers at all levels of an organization to more easily access, understand, analyse, collaborate and act on information, anytime and anywhere. With the changing business landscape more and more businesses are looking for ways to better improve sales, margin and inventory management; BI offers a framework by which data can be analysed and business decision taken with greater certainty.
