The difference between Business Intelligence and Big Data

From What’s the difference between Business Intelligence and Big Data? – Eric D. Brown.

Brown sums it up:

Business Intelligence helps find answers to questions you know. Big Data helps you find the questions you don’t know you want to ask.

As he points out, there’s more to it than the sound bite and it is complicated. But if you’re looking for a useful one-liner, that’s as good as any.
