Big Data Analytics Going Beyond Business Intelligence
-The term “Big Data analytics” needs to be differentiated from Business Intelligence (BI).
-BI solutions have been in existence for many years and are focused on transforming historical data into patterns and derive insights for analysis and reporting purposes.
-Cognos* and Business Objects** are key examples of vendors of BI solutions that are commonly used by organisations today.
-Key examples of BI solutions are traditionally designed to rely on relational data, which are mainly structured. Such data are aggregated in different ways based on predesigned aggregation and statistical programs.
-BI solutions are unable to process high-speed, unstructured data from online sources.
-BI lacks the ability to forecast and deliver predictive insights from large, varied and rapidly changing data sets. This is where Big Data analytics solutions come into the picture.
