Business Intelligence Tools Overview

What is Business Intelligence (BI)?

Business Intelligence products are all designed to make sense of the huge quantities of data that organizations accumulate over time, by analyzing it and presenting it in a form where it can guide decision-making.


Business Intelligence products (BI) make up a large heterogeneous category of software. Not all tools in the category can be meaningfully compared to each other. There are several sub-categories of tools of which the most substantive are Full-Stack Business Intelligence Tools and Data Visualization Tools.

Full-Stack Business Intelligence Tools

Full-stack or traditional products are enterprise-level tools designed to solve the specific problem of enterprise data silos. Much crucial business data is stored in a range of different data stores, many attached to business applications like ERP. These tools consolidate all data in a data warehouse which is a relational database designed for data mining instead of transactional processing.


Slices of data from the warehouse—usually summary data for a single department like sales or finance—are stored in a “data mart” for quick access. All of this structured data is normalized by using an ETL process (Extract, Transform and Load) whereby transactional data is combined into a single pool of data and then “transformed” into a more appropriate format for querying and analysis before being written in the data warehouse database.


The Full-Stack Business Intelligence TrustMap shows only those products that belong in this sub-category.

Data Discovery and Visualization Business Intelligence

Data Visualization products have a different purpose. These products are primarily designed to help data analysts discover patterns in large quantities of data and to build compelling visual representations which allow these patterns to be easily understood.


These tools often use a technology called in-memory analytics to query data residing on a computer’s RAM rather than on a physical disk which means that the data does not have to be stored anywhere for subsequent analysis.


The Data Visualization TrustMap shows only those tools that belong in this sub-category.

Pricing Information

Business Intelligence software is generally quite expensive. However, it’s worth remembering that it is often money very well-spent in terms of significantly improved decision-making.


One of the impediments to understanding pricing is that vendors base their pricing on a broad range of different variables from number of users to number of CPU cores.


However, as a very rough guide, advanced report authoring can cost $2,000 to $2,500 per seat, while interactive report viewing can be about half that amount. Static report viewing can be as little as $50 per seat.
