Agent-Based Modelling and Simulations as an Integral Functionality of the Business Intelligence Framework
The Business Intelligence concept has been subject of interest in the realm of computer science and business administration for several years. While various analytical tools have been developed and focus on historical data has represented the main stream of research, inclusion of simulations-based forecasts and predictions have been somehow neglected. Therefore, this paper introduces the business intelligence framework in association with agent-based simulations. Moreover, it supports it with the demonstration, in which particular functionality of the Broker agent is used. Finally, the paper also depicts possibilities of further research that can elaborate and further progress the use of agent-based simulations in business intelligence.
