What is BI – Business Intelligence ?

Posted by Ashraf on March 13, 2008

A lot of definitions you may have through searching the web. But the most simple one i got from BIdirectional (a BI blogsite) is: “BI is the way that find out the information I need to know when I need it in the exact way that I want it presented. ” For Example, Let’s say you’re part of a quiz team and you have a certain specialist subject. When someone asks you a question on that subject, you would be considered an expert if you knew the answer. This form of intelligence maps to large and small organisations through the use of business information systems. Often, those systems (or quiz team members) contain all of the answers to questions posed by individuals within an organisation but the difference in computing terms is that there is no guarantee that the data is organised or integrated in a manner that could provide the quiz master with an answer.

BI provides infromation for any business organization both textual and visual way.

    Hi Ashraf, I enjoyed reading your comments related to BI. I see BI in a similar way. I like to think the required functionality of any good BI system is allowing the user an interactive experience with the system. The BI System will present answers quickly and intuitive insights to help the Analyst or Decision Maker along without interfering in the natural thought process. Thanks for the insight! Great Article
