Business intelligence (BI) is the analysis & dashboarding of data for businesses. It encompasses data collection and data warehouse administration, but is most often connected with data analysis, insight gathering, and reporting. BI transforms raw data from many internal and external sources into usable metrics that can be utilised in operations, planning, product development, strategic management, and other divisions of a business using data mining technology, tools, and methodologies.

To help firms make more data-driven choices, business intelligence (BI) incorporates business analytics, data mining, data visualisation, data tools and infrastructure, and best practises. In practise, you've got contemporary business intelligence when you have a holistic perspective of your company's data and can utilise it to drive change, reduce inefficiencies, and swiftly adjust to market or supplier changes.


Business intelligence (BI) is essentially a set of tools that integrates business analytics, data mining, data visualisation, infrastructure, and best practises to assist businesses in making more data-driven choices.
