Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

Petrochemical Manufacturing


Companies in the petrochemical industry manage the operations and processes that transform crude oil and other raw materials into chemical products. There are two major categories of petrochemical companies:
  • companies that refine oil and other raw materials and convert them into basic chemicals such as ethylene; and
  • companies that use these basic chemicals to create materials that can then be used in other industries to produce finished products, such as plastics, detergents, paints, fertilizers, polyester, etc.
