Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) tools enable analyzing, discovering, and reporting on data to help executives and managers make more informed business decisions. A key component of any BI tool is the ability to deliver data visualization through dashboards, charts, and other graphical output.

Business intelligence also sometimes overlaps with technologies such as data integration/transformation and advanced analytics; however, we’ve chosen to list these technologies separately in their own categories.
