Business Intelligence (BI) refers to a broad category of applications which assist executive business users to improve their decision making and strategic planning by collecting, storing and analyzing a large volume of historically collected data. BI systems may be divided into reporting systems and data mining applications. Data mining (also known as Knowledge Discovery in Data, or KDD) is the science of extracting useful knowledge from huge data repositories. Data mining applications often employ sophisticated mathematical and statistical techniques to perform data analysis, search for specific patterns or relationships, if they exist, and make future predictions.
