Gartner Glossary

Analytic Applications

Analytic applications are packaged business intelligence (BI) capabilities for a particular domain or business problem. Flexible, traditional BI tools often lack the “packaging” required to facilitate adoption among most employees. Examples of packaging include a user interface suitable for casual users, predefined integration with standard business process applications, issue-specific data models and best-practice templates or wizards.
