The raison d'être of BI is to provide business users with information that enables them to take action.
Montreal, QC (PRWEB) April 15, 2009
Technology Evaluation Centers Inc. (TEC), the leading resource for enterprise software selection, has released a new business intelligence (BI) market report that discusses the advantages of BI 2.0.
This informative report details how BI 2.0 can provide real benefits for organizations, and what product features to look for in a BI solution in order to maximize these benefits.
"By enabling the sharing of data-related knowledge through the BI system itself, business users become more self-sufficient and actions can be taken more quickly," says Russell Cooper, TEC's BI analyst. Cooper states, "The raison d'être of BI is to provide business users with information that enables them to take action."
BI 2.0 allows business users to support themselves, not just in terms of creating and modifying their own reports, but also to share and enrich the information supplied to them. This reduces the burden on IT and allows users to arrive at a point of action more quickly.
The report includes an executive overview and a case study, as well as market insight on the innovations of BI.
With planned distribution to over 740,000 decision makers via TEC's channels, the 2009 State of the Market Report is available for download at no charge.
