Ventana Research has analyzed how traditional business intelligence (BI) purchased primarily by IT and deployed to business is slowly evolving from dashboards, query, analysis, reporting and presentation centric approaches to a new generation of technologies that is designed for business to engage and address their business process and decision making needs. This new research sets out to do what no previous research has, comprehensively assess the benefits and best practices associated with deploying next generation business intelligence.
Ventana Research designed this benchmark research to yield a broad-based, authoritative analysis of the use of and interest in collaborative and mobile capabilities to advance business intelligence. The research will investigate the styles of collaboration and sharing from social engagement through wall posting and broadcasting to discussion forums, web-conferencing and messaging. The research will assess how organizations use technology for business intelligence to better ascertain how to more easily access information as well as a range of metrics and indicators from analytics through mobile technologies like smart-phone and tablets. The research will measure the adoption and interest in Apple, Google Android, Microsoft and RIM based mobile technology platforms and manufacturers of the devices. In addition the research will assess the maturity of BI today from basic requirements to the needs of using geography and location to using cloud computing and how organizations are planning to replace or complement existing BI deployments.
"The collaboration and mobile technology advancements in the consumer market has set new expectations by businesses. This has pressured many BI providers to adopt a wide variety of new collaboration and mobile capabilities," said Mark Smith, CEO & Chief Research Officer of Ventana Research.
