As leaders in professional recruitment solutions we strive to narrow the gap between employee and organisation by providing collaborative opportunities for both businesses and professionals; locally and abroad. The Business Intelligence market is foreseen to grow by 30% until 2018, and even further beyond that. Most small businesses are realising the importance of business intelligence and analytics and as such, the demand for professionals in this area is in constant shortage.
Business intelligence deals with gathering and processing of big data while business analytics presents strategic opportunities to make evidence-based decisions that optimise business performance.
Although used interchangeably, business intelligence and analytics are two sides of the same coin. The term business intelligence has been used since the early 19th century to explain both organisation and processing of information into decision-making models. Only later did the increasing infrastructure of management science give way to business analytics as a statistical and quantitative tool in relating past and current data to predict future business trends.
The challenges of business intelligence and analytics have decreased while the complexity of demand has radically increased. Big data is much easier integrated and organised in the present day, but the bigger challenge remains in providing simpler descriptive and predictive business models tailored to each individual demand.
