Business intelligence, or BI, sometimes called “data surfacing,” refers to software applications used to analyze an organization’s data, transforming it into useful information for business analysis.
BI as a discipline is made up of several related activities, including data mining, online analytical processing, querying and reporting.
Among other uses, BI tools empower organizations to gain insight into new markets, assess demand and suitability of products and services for different market segments, and gauge the impact of marketing efforts.

- Eliminating guesswork
