Business intelligence tools

Business intelligence tools

Business intelligence tools are a type of application software designed to report, analyze and present data. The tools generally read data that have been previously stored often, though, not necessarily, in a data warehouse or data mart.

Types of business intelligence tools

The key general categories of business intelligence tools are:
*Spreadsheets [ [,7211,41687,00.html Ouch! Get Ready — Spreadsheets Are Here To Stay For Business Intelligence by Boris Evelson - Forrester Research ] ]
*Reporting and querying software - are tools that extract, sort, summarize, and present selected data
* Digital Dashboards
*Data mining
*Process mining
*Business performance management

Except for spreadsheets, these tools are sold as standalone tools, suites of tools, components of ERP systems, or as components of software targeted to a specific industry. The tools are sometimes packaged into data warehouse appliances.
