What Is Business Intelligence?

Your business generates data. Every actionable item can be analyzed and measured and the data it creates can be a key element of an organization’s strategic and tactical business decisions. Business intelligence is a way for your business to examine data to understand trends and other aspects of your business that aren’t readily obvious unless you dig into the numbers.

The key to business intelligence is a robust BI software that collects and analyzes the data and packages discoveries in reports that are easy to read. The Birst BI platform is a rich, simplified, cloud-based end-to-end business intelligence suite that allows you to analyze data sources and present findings in reports, summaries, dashboards, graphs, charts, and maps to provide users with a detailed intelligence report.

Business intelligence tools like Birst will not tell you what to do, rather they are a way to understand trends across different divisions and product lines of your business.
