What is Business intelligence
In the most simplistic terms, it's all about making sense out of all the data, information, processes, procedures & technologies used in or generated by a business to advance it.

You should refer WikiPedia for a detailed article on what business intelligence is. If you have specific questions, please post them here so that we can answer them 😀 .

Thanks aarthivg. What is the best open source tools for etl process?
My preference could be Pentaho and talend. There is a huge opening for Pentaho in the market. Talend , I haven't worked with it. But one of my colleague said it is a easy tool to learn.
Informatica is one of the best tool which I have worked with, but its not a open source tool.

Feel free to post your questions here. All the best.
