The theory reviews the notion of Business Intelligence and discusses the conditions necessary to make good decisions. It also explains how it helps organisations to unlock the hidden potential of data.
Business Intelligence Definition
Business intelligence (BI) is the process of finding, gathering, aggregating and analysing information for decision-making (Saggion et al., 2007). It employs a set of technologies that allow the acquisition and analysis of data to improve company decision-making and work-flows (Herschel and Jones, 2005). Moss and Atre (2003) define business intelligence as an architecture and collection of integrated operational as well as decision-support applications and database that provide the business community easy access to business data.
