Business Intelligence (BI) leverages tools such as software and services to transform data sets and information into actionable insights that a company can use to inform strategic decision making. BI tools do nor analyse data for you and is completely objective, rather they access and analyse data to present findings in a manner that is easy to absorb, either as a summary, graph, chart, map or other visual means. This allows a business to understand any issues or opportunities to be addressed much more quickly & efficiently and helps to reduce costs, promote stability by making more informed decisions, develop business opportunities and offer a competitive advantage.
Conversely, Analytics utilises algorithms to determine the relationship between data sets and offers predictive insights of what is likely to occur in the future. The major difference, therefore, between BI and Analytics is that Analytics has predictive capabilities, whereas Business Intelligence helps informed decision-making based on the analysis of past data.
These technologically led processes of refining raw data into actionable insights are a modern-day phenomenon and progress is constant. The age of artificial intelligence allows machine learning to be integrated with Business Intelligence & Analytics to create Augmented Analytics, where systems understand certain relationships between data sets and can both guide and inform users with their queries and analysis.
