Advanced Analytics

Also referred to as data science, machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and “Big Data”, advanced analytics covers a broad category of vendors, tools, and technologies that provide advanced capabilities for statistical and predictive modeling.

These tools and technologies often share some overlapping features and functionality with BI tools; however, they are less focused on analyzing/reporting on past data. Instead, they focus on examining large data sets to discover patterns and uncover useful business information that can be used to predict future trends.
