Business Intelligence 2.0: Are We There Yet?
Business Intelligence (BI) has been with us for years now, and, one would argue, not much has changed. Advances in the consumer communications and the entertainment world have dwarfed commercial software applications. Consumers have unprecedented access to information and tools with which to consume information. Social media, mobile access, augmented reality and 3D views of pictures and video have blurred the lines between the private and work personas and have fundamentally changed the way the consumer utilizes information. Conversely, BI has seemed to lack in any real innovation.
