Business intelligence (BI) is a technology-driven process for analyzing data and presenting actionable information to help corporate executives, business managers and other end users make more informed business decisions. BI encompasses a variety of tools, applications and methodologies that enable organizations to collect data from internal systems and external sources, prepare it for analysis, develop and run queries against the data, and create reports, dashboards and data visualizations to make the analytical results available to corporate decision makers as well as operational workers. Some of the technologies used are IBM Cognos, SAP Business Objects, MicroStrategy, OBIEE, Information Builder WebFOCUS, MS ProClarity, Informatica, PowerCenter and DataStage.

The potential benefits of business intelligence programs include accelerating and improving decision making; optimizing internal business processes; increasing operational efficiency; driving new revenues; and gaining competitive advantages over business rivals. BI systems can also help companies identify market trends and spot business problems that need to be addressed. BI enables fact-based decisions by providing decision makers with self-service access to their business information when they need it – a mature business intelligence capability.  Business intelligence (BI) is enabling decision making by providing integrated, accurate, timely, and actionable information.
