It is very amazing to see that the stream representing Dashboards has remained constant through out the years.

So does the stream for Analytics and Business Intelligence in general exihibit similar trend.

Analytics is kind of widening its mouth as we move forward and that is being helped by the combination of terms such as Hadoop + Big Data + Analytics being used almost together.

Looks like the Trend for Dashboards define the lower bound and the trend for Business Intelligence define the upper bound. The trend for Hadoop started around first Quarter of 2007.

Before Big Data and Hadoop came into picture the term "Analytics" exhibited a stable ground closer to dashboards but now the trend for Analytics seems to be following Big Data and Hadoop.
