This technology is very mature and reliable, and is designed primarily for larger deployments. However, it does requires significant resources to deploy and maintain.

IBM launched a limited release of its Watson Analytics platform in 2014 as a foray into the data discovery space. This product combines the power of Watson’s cognitive computing technology with existing predictive analytics capabilities to produce a natural language query engine. The result is a very powerful analytics engine for ordinary business users

The BI life cycle spans a continuum that begins with large amounts of disparate data and stretches to encompass people, technology, information, analysis, and decision making. The benefits of BI are substantial: new business capabilities for insight, forecasting, planning, agility, and strategy execution.
Realizing benefits is challenging. With many moving parts—infrastructure, technology, data, integration, analytics, applications, metrics, reports, dashboards, scorecards—putting the pieces together in the most effective way is difficult. Learn the basics of BI from end to end, with special attention to two of the most important factors for BI success: planning and collaboration. You are most able to chart a course for BI success when teams and stakeholders share common concepts, use consistent terminology, and contribute collectively to the BI vision.
