What are Business Intelligence and Data Mining?

In one sentence, “Business Intelligence” can be defined as “Data Based Decision”. Decisions based on data provide a competitive edge to today’s business. Taking the cognizance of the fact that this field is growing very rapidly, many large domestic IT consultancy and service companies have already established a separate “BI” practice.

BI systems need data and techniques of storing and analyzing the same. Data Mining is an emerging technology for analyzing the data through which valuable ‘knowledge’ is discovered from the databases of business. For example, using data mining technology a business can improve their sales turnover significantly by spotting the more likely buyers and cross selling products.

The technology is founded in machine learning, statistical, mathematical and data management sciences. The data mining software enables a business manager to find patterns in data and classify or cluster records or predict values based on multiple variables. The techniques include Neural Networks, k-Means clustering, Logistic Regression, Classification Trees, k-Nearest Neighbors and so on.
