Jump to navigation Jump to search Business intelligence BI refers to skills, technologies, applications and practices used to help a business acquire a better understanding of its commercial context. BI applications provide historical, current, and predictive views of business operations. Common functions of business intelligence applications are reporting , OLAP , analytics , Data Mining , business performance management , benchmarks , text mining , and predictive analytics. Business intelligence often aims to support better business decision-making. He noted: "The availability of documents in machine-readable form is a basic requirement of the system. Typewriters with paper-tape punching attachments are already used extensively in information processing and communication operations.
These are major application categories and many more examples are documented at vendor web sites. What are the expected benefits of operational, data-driven BI? Many benefits are cited and not all are realized in every implementation. It is common to cite faster business decisions and improved efficiency. Some systems support customer-facing personnel and hence improve customer service and relations.
Some systems improve the quality of information and reduce costs of obtaining information. Ideally an operational business intelligence system results in more and better use of information and more time spent analyzing and using the information.
As I noted in , "At a fundamental level, the hope has always been that our information and decision support systems will help decision makers monitor events, and evaluate, choose and act on alternatives as events actually unfold.
Mobile phones will deliver data in real-time to managers, sales staff and emergency personnel, companies will have active datawarehouses, extensive event data will be recorded in real-time, and business analytics will be available in real-time or "near real-time".
In general, there will be a greater expenditure in the future of funds on real-time DSS for operational decision support.
The possibilities for on-line, real-time decision support in are much broader than they were in and and the systems will certainly be more powerful, but the concept hasn't changed cf. Hatch, D.

One type of unstructured data is typically stored in a BLOB binary large object , a catch-all data type available in most relational database management systems. Unstructured data may also refer to irregularly or randomly repeated column patterns that vary from row to row  or files of natural language that do not have detailed metadata.
Metadata can include information such as author and time of creation, and this can be stored in a relational database. Therefore, it may be more accurate to talk about this as semi-structured documents or data,  but no specific consensus seems to have been reached. Unstructured data can also simply be the knowledge that business users have about future business trends.
Business forecasting naturally aligns with the BI system because business users think of their business in aggregate terms. Capturing the business knowledge that may only exist in the minds of business users provides some of the most important data points for a complete BI solution. Limitations of semi-structured and unstructured data[ edit ] There are several challenges to developing BI with semi-structured data.
Couple that with the need for word-to-word and semantic analysis. In a simple search, the term felony is used, and everywhere there is a reference to felony, a hit to an unstructured document is made. But a simple search is crude.
