Business Intelligence (BI) Definition
Business Intelligence (BI) refers to a set of technologies and methods for capturing, analyzing, and utilizing data to make informed decisions.
According to Gartner, BI refers to both the "applications, infrastructure, and tools" as well as the "best practices" for accessing and analyzing data.
Similarly, another source says Business Intelligence refers to the "the procedural and technical infrastructure that collects, stores and analyzes" a company's data.
At this point, it should be clear that BI is more than a bunch of expensive software licenses. It's a methodology that encompasses software and people, quantitative data and qualitative insights.
What is Business Intelligence (BI)?
At Alluxo, we believe that Business Intelligence is a mindset for running a data-driven organization. Where possible, you want to access and analyze data to make your decisions.
That said, data can be a broad term and encompass a lot of different factors. People visit and interact with your website, which produces data. So does sending invoices, receiving a new shipment from a supplier, or signing a new lease.
Business Intelligence can help you understand the massive amount of data within your company and use data to make better decisions. That's the key of BI – better decisions.
