Business Analytics appropriates the results obtained and works on simulations to understand how business performance will be based on what has already been done.

B.A needs B.I, and B.I has a lot to gain from B.A. This is the basic relationship between these two analytical segments. The big difference is in the time of action, that is, in which moment each one is focused. Business Intelligence is focused on the "now". It also uses data to become more accurate, however, it captures the analysis of historical data and converts its actions to the current moment. B.I's main function is to coordinate and guide the processes based on the results being produced, in order to optimize the processes and generate improvements.

B.A, on the other hand, is not satisfied with "now" and also focuses on "tomorrow". That's what your projection capacity based on data is for. Business Analytics appropriates the results obtained and works on simulations to understand how business performance will be based on what has already been done. Once in possession of this information, the management team can use Business Intelligence to modify these projections and make future results more fruitful.

The Microsoft Office Specialist is considered an integral part of many businesses as they skillfully use an office suite to perform essential daily duties like written correspondence through MS-word, email programs, analyzing data sets.

If we put the action of the B.I and B.A in the capacity to answer questions, we will see that the B.I has the answers to questions such as "what happened / is happening with the results?" and “what caused these numbers?”. The B.A, in turn, answers questions focused on the future, such as "What will happen if ..." or "What will be the result if ...". It seems frivolous to label the performance according to the questions that arise from the two processes, however, when analyzing each one it becomes clear what is the focus of B.I (today) and B.A (tomorrow).
