It’s going to be all about getting things done!
Standards and enterprise-grade platforms will continue to be important, but individual BI tools with the functionality to show a single version of the truthwill trump standards.
Enterprises will learn to live with multiple BI tools.
Business Intelligencewill continue to move away from the IT team and into the hands of the business user.
Mobile BIwill go mainstream. Tomorrows decisions will need to be made when and where they need to be made, not “when I get back to the office”.
Cloud BIwill continue to chip away at on-premises BI, but it’s still a long road ahead.
BI-specific DBMSes(in-memory, others) will go mainstream.
Big datawill start to move out of silos and into enterprise IT. IT will start to learn how to live with it.
BI users will start demanding and vendors will start delivering Bi tools that integrate with email and collaboration platforms. Just integrating BI with Excel is no longer enough.
