What is different between Geo BI and GIS and its advantage/disadvantage?

According to me Geo BI is the representation of statistical(OR analysis of)data on the map (like Pie-chart,Bar diagram & more) where GIS is represent data on the map(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geographic_information_system) –  Sunil Jan 23 '13 at 8:22
Do you want to compare any specific software or platform for that ?? (Like Esri/Open source ) ?? –  Sunil Jan 23 '13 at 8:30
GeoBI more a combination of GIS and BI. Combining-joining geodata with al kinds Enterprize data to make a map with bar charts etc. –  warrieka Jan 23 '13 at 8:30

Can you edit the question to explain why you are asking? What do you intend to use this information for? That might help to direct the answers a bit more. –  BradHards Jan 23 '13 at 9:28
