People have been using the term “business intelligence 2.0” for a few years, but it’s described in different ways. In Business Intelligence 2.0: Simpler, More Accessible, Inevitable Neil Raden says:

"…the current era of BI is coming to an end and will be
succeeded by a BI 2.0 era that promises simplicity, universal access,
real-time insight, collaboration, operational intelligence, connected
services and a level of information abstraction that supports far
greater agility and speed of analysis. The motivation for this "version
upgrade" for BI is the need to move analytical intelligence into
operations and to shrink the gap between analysis and action."

Charles Nichols writes, in BI 2.0: The Next Generation that:

"BI 2.0 is a term that encapsulates several important
new concepts about the way that we use and exploit information in
businesses, organizations and government. The term is also
intrinsically linked with real-time and event-driven BI but is really
about the application of these technologies to business processes."

BI 2.0 is not really about a new generation of BI tools to perform
analytics but getting more comprehensive, consistent, correct and CURRENT data.
