Business Intelligence (BI) refers to computer-based techniques used in spotting, digging-out, and analyzing business data, such as sales revenue by products or departments or associated costs and incomes.

History

In a 1958 article, IBM researcher Hans Peter Luhn used the term business intelligence. He defined intelligence as:[2] "the ability to apprehend the interrelationships of presented facts in such a way as to guide action towards a desired goal." In 1989 Howard Dresner (later a Gartner Group analyst) proposed BI as an umbrella term to describe "concepts and methods to improve business decision making by using fact-based support systems."[3] It was not until the late 1990s that this usage was widespread. Tools of business intelligence

The key general categories of business intelligence tools are:

▪ Spreadsheets
