Business Intelligence applications are apps that help businesses analyze and interpret data so that they can make informed strategic decisions. No matter what kind of business you are, from a lab to healthcare delivery to research project, agency or other organization, it's important to do things efficiently, based on the metrics that apply in your discipline.

The main types of business intelligence apps include

  • Spreadsheets
  • Reporting and querying software: applications that extract, sort, summarize, and present selected data
  • Online analytical processing (OLAP)
  • Digital dashboards
  • Data mining
  • Process visualization
  • Data warehousing
  • Local information systems[1]
