                  1. Business intelligence (BI), is a term that refers to a variety of software applications used to analyze an organization’s data to improve decision making, cut costs, identify inefficient business processes and new business opportunities.
                    1. Business intelligence or a decision support system (DSS) is made up of several related activities, including data mining, online analytical processing, querying and reporting
                      1. The purpose of business intelligence is to support better business decisions based on facts and data rather than on intuition and anecdotes.
                        1. The implementation of business intelligence is challenging because of technical information flaws and resistance. Management must make sure that the data collected is accurate and consistent.
                        2. Benefits
                          1. Business intelligence can be used to identify improvement opportunities, analyze business data into accessible reports, react quickly to retail demand and optimize prices.
                            1. Business intelligence can give companies better position and leverage during negotiations by quantifying the value of relationships with suppliers and customers.
                              1. Business intelligence can save money by optimizing business processes and focusing on decisions.
                              2. KPI
                                1. Business intelligence often uses key performance indicators (KPIs) to assess the present state of business and to prescribe a course of action.
                                  1. Companies that use BI to uncover defective business processes are in a much better position to successfully compete than companies that use BI merely to monitor what's happening.
