BI: an evolving discipline

The influence of Big Data ...

When he appeared a few years ago, BI (business intelligence) was working on the basis of complex principles, but was limited to surface data (eg, what was the average number of purchase the last two days) from which we had then to extrapolate decisions.

Today, with Big Data, BI needs to go further in its systemic approach.

It captures, aggregates and models internal operational data (sales, profits, inventory, human resources, ...) but also a large volume of external data, less tangible and immediate (Google, comments on social media, etc..) to make it profitable information and reveal trends and actions to be undertaken in real time.

Considering the evolution of the processed information, beyond traditional tables and analytical reports, graphic charts must be generated to stick to that need of fast access to information.
