This chapter has conducted an exhaustive review of BDI literature and classified BDI applications based on their domain. The methods, applications, advantages and disadvantage of the research in each paper are tabulated. Taxonomy of concepts, table of acronyms and the organization of the chapter are presented. The number of papers reviewed industry-wise is depicted as a pie chart. A comparative analysis of curated survey papers with specific parameters to discover the research gaps were also tabulated. The research issues, implementation challenges and future trends are highlighted. A case study of BDI solutions implemented in various organizations was also discussed. This chapter concludes with a holistic view of BDI concepts and solutions implemented in organizations.
