Business Intelligence & Analytics are still a high priority for business leaders, and the advent of a new generation of technologies have continued to bring significant value to companies who understand how these tools can transform business performance.

Business Intelligence and Analytics are distinctly different solutions and markets, but definitely complement each other. Fundamentally, Business Intelligence provides an opportunity to run your business more efficiently whilst Business Analytics provides the insight to change your business.

The benefits

Business Intelligence focuses on creating operational efficiency through the visualisation of real time data – providing the ability to understand how to best perform within a department or business function. A single view of multiple data sources provides insights and informed decision making as well as the identification and resolution of problems.

Business Analytics is the management and review of historical data from multiple sources systems via statistical, quantitative, data mining, spatial and predictive modelling. Often this role is tasked to the business analyst and driven by a specific business need. It is their focus that helps identify trends and information that can drive business change and support successful business practices.
