Business Intelligence 2.0

What Does Business Intelligence 2.0 Mean?

Business intelligence 2.0 (BI 2.0) refers to business tools and technologies that provide new and unique features and capabilities. It differs from traditional data querying methods of business intelligence in that it incorporates service-oriented architecture and Web 2.0, thus bringing a more web- and browser-based approach to information gathering. Business intelligence focuses more on the context of data streams and on the insight rather than just information.
