  Definitions of Business Intelligence
Guy Harvey, Manager, United Kingdom, Member
  I think it's hard to adequately give a definition of business intelligence in a single sentence. It means so much, to so many, from some every industry and service provider on the planet. Profets such as Cindi Howsen, Wayne Ekerson et al have written countless books on the subject, each longer than a single sentence.
