In the world of Business Intelligence and Analytics a lot of vendors do their jobs well. They all have capabilities that fit one of your purposes. It is a marketplace that is under heavy competition and making the difference is a complicated job.

The selection of the right solution still remains a tough job. Do you have the right purposes already made clear? Luckily there are research firms such as Forrester or Gartner who can help you with at least the pre-selection.

The definition of Business Intelligence and Analytics 

Business intelligence (BI) is a technology-driven process for analyzing data and presenting actionable information to help corporate executives, business managers and other end users make more informed business decisions. BI encompasses a wide variety of tools, applications and methodologies that enable organizations to collect data from internal systems and external sources, prepare it for analysis, develop and run queries against the data, and create reports, dashboards and data visualizations to make the analytical results available to corporate decision makers as well as operational workers.
