Best Business Intelligence Platforms Software

Business intelligence platforms provide an architecture for businesses to analyze company data and reveal patterns and insights. BI platforms are used by IT and data professionals to model and transform enterprise data and to deploy internal analytics applications to business users. Businesses require intelligence throughout their company structure to determine the health of metrics and how different metrics and data points are related. This analysis can locate opportunities and areas of improvement and is necessary to continue adapting and refining business strategies. BI platforms consume data in its many forms, through file uploads and direct connectors to databases and business applications.

To qualify as a BI platform, a product must:

  • Consume data from any source through file uploads, database querying, and application connectors
  • Provide an architecture to transform data into a useful and relatable model
  • Support data modeling, blending, and discovery processes
  • Create reports and visualizations with business utility
  • Create and deploy internal analytics applications

Products in our BI Platforms category are more customizable and comprehensive platforms than our other BI categories that require more IT involvement to set up and deploy. For products designed to be primarily configured and used by average business users like managers and analysts, look at our Self-Service BI category. Our Data Visualization category houses products primarily designed to create charts, graphs, and benchmark visualizations.
