Not just Business Intelligence as usual.
BI + is in contrast to bigger, centralized solutions where users must both struggle to get the information they want, frustrated by the "discoveries" they never get, while looking at lacking and down right boring visualizations.
Spotting convergencies that no one has expected in advance makes for new discoveries and in the end will impact your decisions for the better
BI + offers exciting visualizations urging on the user to dive into the data, instead of the sad experience that older systems usually offer
Better usability = success experience = a system that is in use. Your employees will keep using the system and turning up solid results on a regular basis
Decentralized systems like BI plus, gives power of control to the individual user without the struggle they are used to in old-fashion BI systems
Businesses today often emphasizes that modern BI tools where users can use and 'play' gives a very positive experience.
We have come far, from "old" datawarehouse solutions where key IT-people provided both data and (fixed) reports to the reality we have today, where the business itself can create new dimensions and discover connections between datasets.
BI has revolutionized businesses ability to see, experience, and not least new discoveries for companies, giving them the ability to gain new insight and there's not a lack of BI suppliers but we see three companies that stands out - see below.

Why BI-plus and not just BI?
In 2018 we will see a gradual transition to Big Data technologies, including Hadoop and Machine Learning tools
Gartner and others clearly say that in 2018 (maybe before), we will see a gradual transition to Big Data technologies, including Hadoop and various Machine Learning tools.
It may seem overkill and it probably is to some extent - but there is no doubt that BI is heading for BD (Big Data). Not because of huge amounts of data, but because Big Data is a technology task that's very interesting for BI tasks.
To some extent we are already on our way towards Big Data and a new way of doing Business Intelligence
Qlik has the ability to point out convergencies that nobody has asked for in advance - a kind of Machine Learning or AI that customers appreciate.

A data platform standard

So without the big Big Revolution around the businesses, this development comes to us, not least because the Hadoop platform is ultra-scalable, cheap, powerful and gradually a standard for a data- and calculation platform.
