I consulted the dictionary and saw the definitions of overarch:

verb (used with object)

  1. to span with or like an arch: A new bridge overarches the river.

verb (used without object)

  1. to form an arch over something: a cerulean sky overarching in the early twilight.

In this sentence,

In this blog, I intend to identify and discuss the overarching benefits derived from successful Strategic BI implementation.

what is the meaning of overarching? Does it mean overflowing?

You need to look under overarching, where the dictionary definition says:

encompassing or overshadowing everything: The community's overarching needs are more jobs and better housing.

Sometimes a different form of the word has only slightly-related meanings to the root.
