Study Notes

The Big Picture: Business Intelligence

  • Business Intelligence (BI) provides insights and enables better decision-making.
  • There are different types of BI:
    • Reporting
    • Analytics
    • Performance Management
    • Collaboration
    • Knowledge Management
    • Real-time BI
  • A framework for Business Intelligence includes:
    • Data Warehousing (DW)
    • Data Mining (DM)
    • Business Analytics (BA)
    • Business Performance Management (BPM)

Introduction to Data Mining

  • Data Mining (DM) works with and without Data Warehousing (DW).
  • However, due to the computational expense of mining techniques, it is preferred to mine on DW for several reasons:
    • Faster processing
    • Improved data quality
    • Better data integration
