Business Intelligence (BI) is evolving as a vital tool for enterprises to gain real-time insights on business performance. Technology evolution drives the development of innovative applications, fueling informed business decision making. With the steep rise in data volume obtained from various sources, whether structured or unstructured, enterprises are progressively focusing on emerging technologies to enhance BI's data processing and visualization capabilities. Exponentially increasing the use of technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, and cloud computing is spurring innovative BI tools that can process data in real time for valuable insights.

BI trends are gradually shifting from complex on-premise data storage and intelligence models to cloud-based, on-demand, and flexible offerings. For example, the demand for mobile BI solutions is on the rise. Data representation approaches are also changing to offer enriched data interactivity and an enhanced end-user experience. Instead of traditional brick-and-mortar BI approaches such as spreadsheets, modern BI platforms offer feature-rich data visualization to better understand data relationships.
