A BI solution enables business leaders to use the right tools to proactively make informed decisions about their business. Sophisticated reporting and analytics allow information workers and leaders to look beyond the history of their business data. By examining the past and present, you can spot trends and patterns. You can use reliable business analytics to forecast future trends, to plan for improved business processes, and to make informed decisions.

Once upon a time, businesses ran reports to keep track of simple things such as sales totals, invoices, inventory, and production runs. As an industry, we had reached a point where we were quite proficient at gathering and storing data. Most businesses had gigabytes or terabytes of data to report on. With the current set of Microsoft reporting and BI technologies (namely, SQL Server and SharePoint), you have some choices. These are discussed in appropriate detail in later chapters. Simply put, the data source for a report could be the relational database used to manage transactional data, a data mart, or a data warehouse stored in a relational database management system (such as SQL Server or Oracle). For better performance and fl exible analysis over a large volume of data, data can be stored in a semantic model. This can be either a multidimensional structure (often called a cube) or a tabular semantic model that performs aggregations and calculations in-memory.
