The divided world of Business Intelligence

The world of business intelligence is divided between the haves and have not the want to be and the could bees.

Divided between camps of open Source and closed source

.Microsoft alliances versus IBM alliances with SAP alliances and Oracle alliances. Jostling like knights at King Arthurs tables. Writers in the BI blogosphere are trapped in exclusive arrangements, their own quest for intellectual satisfaction and the inherent frenzy at which technology changes faster than you can say the word Cloud manifesto. There are BeYe network, Intelligent Enterprise ,CIO world , Company Blogs at SUN, IBM and SAS, superbly written individual blogs , blog aggregators -some of whom do share their knowledge out.But some dont.

And the customer is confused- where is the intelligence in a divided business intelligence world.


BI Customers in a Recession


A customer is the most important visitor on our premises,

he is not dependent on us.

We are dependent on him.

He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it.

He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it.

We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.
Mahatma Gandhi

And why do 1/3 rd of BI installs go wrong and what customer protection is there in an industry that allows 1/3 rd of installs to give negative ROI.

Divided we bill is better than united we serve.
