Active intelligence

Active intelligence

Active intelligence is a term used to describe software systems and business processes containing functionality or components that evaluate information and drive actions of linked systems or processes in real-time. Active intelligence builds upon the business intelligence (BI) capabilities that have been developed on top of data warehouses and search repositories in that active intelligence requires the information input of a data warehouse or search repository with BI analysis capabilities, but instead of supplying end users with information upon which to make decisions, active intelligence systems supply "applications" with business intelligence and analysis results.1
