Business Intelligence (BI) Software Guide

What is Business Intelligence (BI) Software?

Business intelligence software helps turn raw business data into actionable intelligence to help organizations make more informed business decisions. The software usually collects data from within the company as well as external sources, then transforms, re-structures and analyzes the data, generating reports and making the key findings available to decision makers through dashboards and easy-to-digest data visualizations.

The right business intelligence software not only improves decision-making but also helps businesses identify market trends, problem areas and opportunities, optimize business processes and improve operational efficiency while responding quickly to unforeseen situations if any.

Often, business intelligence software combines a variety of data management, data analysis, data discovery and reporting tools. Some notable features include online analytical processing (OLAP), predictive analytics, data mining, data quality management, data visualization, text analytics and the ability to extract, transform and load (ETL) data.

BI software is no longer used by IT professionals only. Thanks to the development of new user-friendly applications, even non-IT staff and business executives are using these products to analyze data nowadays.
