The amount of data the world produces in a single day is mind-boggling. The per-day data creation, globally, is currently 2.5 quintillion bytes, but the pace is increasingly gaining momentum because of innovative advancements in cloud-based technologies and IoT. While many organizations have access to an overwhelming amount of data, only a few can use it to achieve the level of intelligence required to make informed business decisions. To gain action-oriented insights on the data at hand, companies will have to augment their data literacy, and Business Intelligence (BI) makes that task much easier.
Business Intelligence, supporting a range of data-driven functions, such as predictive analytics, text mining, enterprise reporting, performance, and knowledge management, can drive organizational data literacy to the next level. This eBook will take you through a brief exploration of BI's origins, the current market scenario, scope, and some of the best BI tools available to today's analysts.
