Business Intelligence is Intelligent Decision Making

What is Business Intelligence?

Business Intelligence or BI is a broad term referring to any technology, application or endeavor undertaken to collect, incorporate, analyze and display business information. There was a time when businesses made decisions based solely on speculation and personal experience, but big data collection changed the world when CIO’s traded in their calculators for data-driven Decision Support Systems (DSS).

Data = Decision Making:
Universities use data collection to meet enrollment goals and to improve student experience, retention and course offerings, and with 262 million students projected to be enrolled in higher education by 2025, the amount of data to be collected and analyzed is overwhelming.
Federal governments use data collection to dictate policy, make projections and keep their fingers on the pulse of nations.
Recently social media has come under fire for their less than transparent data collection and usage techniques and with roughly 2.62 billion users worldwide, that’s an astounding amount of data.
The fashion industry is utilizing data collection to project future trends, dictate marketing and promotional strategies and determine which markets to develop. With (roughly) every human being on earth buying and wearing clothes we’d be willing to bet there is quite a bit of data to be collected.

With roughly 2.5 quintillion bytes of data generated per day globally, BI is one of the fastest growing professions in the corporate world!

The IT industry is no exception, using BI daily to answer questions and make decisions.
Is there abnormal behavior on my network?
Are staff complaining about slow internet connections?
What are the bandwidth usage statistics?
Are there any security risks on the network?
Does bandwidth need to be expanded?
What is the overall network traffic status?
The list goes on and on…
