The field of business intelligence (BI) is far older than our modern tools and techniques. As far back as the mid-19th century, business owners have talked about BI as the practice of using knowledge and insights to achieve business goals. Since then, the practice has evolved to incorporate big data, analytics, and visualization solutions to give businesses in the loop a competitive edge in the marketplace.
Going back to the 1960s, business intelligence has incorporated large data sets into its analysis. Originally using mainframe computers, data scientists began working with the tools available to create weekly reports of static information. Today’s business intelligence services are almost unrecognizably efficient and productive in comparison.
Modern BI incorporates real-time dynamic analysis, diverse data sets, and even mobile technologies to produce actionable intelligence in a moment. Remarkably, business intelligence consulting services are still evolving at a remarkable rate.
What businesses can come to expect from BI solutions has revolutionized industries in many ways. Leaning on cloud technologies, superior data gathering, and advanced mining tools means that decisions can be made far faster and far better than could have been imagined even 15 years ago.

Modern systems make better use of the structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data they gather. Data quality and cleansing tools allow systems to consider a wider array of data than they could in the past.
