Business Intelligence (BI) refers to skills, processes, technologies, applications and practices used to support decision making.

BI technologies provide historical, current, and predictive views of business operations. Common functions of Business Intelligence technologies are reporting, OLAP, analytics, data mining, business performance management, benchmarking, text mining, and predictive analytics.

Business Intelligence often aims to support better business decision-making. Thus a BI system can be called a decision support system (DSS).

Enneract (9-cube):

In geometry, an enneract is a nine-dimensional hypercube with 512 vertices, 2304 edges, 4608 square faces, 5376 cubic cells, 4032 tesseract 4-faces, 2016 penteract 5-faces, 672 hexeract 6-faces, 144 hepteract 7-faces, and 18 octeract 8-faces.

The name enneract is derived from combining the name tesseract (the 4-cube) with enne for nine (dimensions) in Greek.

It can also be called a regular octadeca-9-tope or octadecayotton, being made of 18 regular facets.

It is a part of an infinite family of polytopes, called hypercubes. The dual of an enneract can be called a enneacross, and is a part of the infinite family of cross-polytopes.
