Business Intelligence Software: Where It’s Headed

Business intelligence software may be overshadowed by Big Data, but BI remains as relevant as ever.

Business Intelligence (BI) software has had a bit of a struggle as of late. Although the concept has been around for decades, it’s been overshadowed by the shiny new thing, Big Data, which has its roots in BI but adds on much more. Part of the problem centers around the fact many people don’t even know the difference between BI software and Big Data tools, and if you don’t know what they are, you don’t know what they do. IT consultant Eric D. Brown summed it up nicelyby stating “Business Intelligence helps find answers to questions you know. Big Data helps you find the questions you don’t know you want to ask.”
