What is Business Intelligence?
Business Intelligence (BI) is an umbrella term that includes applications, infrastructures, and tools, as well as best practices, that enable access and analysis of information to improve and optimize a company’s decisions and performance.
Business Intelligence, also powered by Big Data, is sometimes confused with the latter or with Data Science. However, these are different concepts. In summary, we can say that Big Data deals with the capture, storage and processing of massive data, Data Science with predictive and prescriptive analysis of this data and Business Intelligence with the exploitation of data to optimize a company’s decisions and reporting.
