 trends and new market opportunities, together with the complete view on suppliers,
 distributors, and customers, is driving the demand for Business Intelligence applications.

 integrating information from different business functions (marketing, finance, and
 operation) is also driving the demand for Business Intelligence applications. Business
 organizations seek BI software to understand their business and customers better, which
