Business Intelligence

The purpose of Business Intelligence is the gathering of data about a specific business process and to use this information to create a tactical and competitive benefit. Business Intelligence typically can be split into two different parts, the ETL & data warehouse part and the enduser reporting & analysis part. In the ETL part, data is extracted out of different sources and loaded into a data warehouse. In the reporting part, the data is fetched from a data warehouse and processed in reports and analysis.
