The term “Business Intelligence” was first coined by IBM researcher Hans Luhn in 1958, and then used in its modern sense in 1989 by then Gartner analyst Howard Dresner. It’s a term which we use in our daily business and are so accustomed to it by now. But what exactly BI means. Many people get confused in BI and they think that BI means IT or data mining etc . The primordial meaning of BI was to implement intelligence in our business to get the best out of it. This intelligence can be derived by human mind or by using computers. As decades passed by data kept on increasing and we needed tools to analyze the data and get information out of it. Manual interpretation and analysis was not at all possible. Hence IT came in and established BI by bringing in softwares, tools that would load the data, analyze it and process it to give us the right information in timely manner.BI helps in understanding our market and also helps in taking decisions. The sole purpose of BI is to increase our revenue, organize our processes and give the right information to take intelligent decisions. BI Market is basically divided in 2 parts. One is Open source BI and another is Proprietary BI. Open source markets include tools like Jaspersoft, BIRT, Pentaho etc. Proprietary BI has many vendors like Microsoft, Microstrategy, Tableau, Qlicktech, SAP, OBIEE, IBM Cognos etc.
