Organizations of all sizes across industries are demanding that business intelligence (BI) and analytics functionality in the form of query, reporting, advanced analytics, data warehousing, and analytic applications be provided to them to support or automate strategic, operational, and tactical decision-making processes.
This demand stems from the growing body of evidence showing a link between investment in BI and analytics solutions and competitiveness. BI and analytics solutions should be both provided as standalone components and integrated with operational applications to ensure their pervasive availability.
On-premises software and software as a service (SaaS) vendors looking to provide BI and analytics functionality have a choice to develop their own components or to partner with an existing BI and analytics vendor. Bringing products to market through partnering is becoming a key success factor in the software industry. This trend is becoming especially relevant in the BI market. IDC believes that the BI market has reached a level of functional maturity where partnering with an established BI vendor presents a compelling economic case.
One of these vendors is SAP ? the leading BI tools provider. In this white paper, IDC presents evidence showing that a partnership with SAP can result in: rapid ROI, improved productivity, and innovation.
