Business Intelligence to Address Data Discovery

In CWorld: Divining Data.

Just a few months ago I would not have directly connected Business Intelligence (BI) with what is usually called Data Discovery.  The later is usually connected to methods that find patterns in data using advanced analytical methods.  Also known more technically as Data Mining, finding the nuggets in vast streams of data being generated by companies today to leverage for value.  It is true that 'discovery' is a process that should be first done visually by people who are familiar with the data itself, and its context.  So in that sense Business Intelligence is Discovery as well and information delivery.  It is just not that in BI's usual implementation.
