Business Intelligence

Business intelligence (BI) is essentially the collection of tools and processes that are used to gather data and turn it into meaningful information that people can use to make better decisions. Excel 2013 offers lots of new BI features and functionality, making it easier than ever to gather data and use the data to create powerful reports, scorecards, and dashboards. Excel Services in SharePoint Server 2013 (on premises) enables you to share, view, explore, and refresh workbooks in a browser window, similar to how it works in Excel.
