Business Intelligence & Analytics (BI&A) Systems

January 1, 1900

Business Intelligence (BI) software is a group of different technological tools aimed at helping organisations in decision making (Chaudhuri, Dayal, & Narasayya, 2011). BI, which was introduced as a term in the 1990s (Chen, Chiang, & Storey, 2012), has been around for many years with different names, like Decision Support System (DSS) and Management Information System (MIS) (Olszak & Ziemba, 2012; Thomsen, 2003).Nowadays, BI represents a combination of processes, technologies and tools (Shariat & Hightower, 2007). This combination aims at transforming raw data into meaningful information and information into knowledge, something excessively important in a world where Big Data is getting even bigger day after day (Mayer-Schönberger, & Cukier, 2013).
