As data warehousing technology gains a ubiquitous presence in business today, companies are becoming increasingly reliant upon the information contained in their data warehouses to inform their operational decisions. This information, known as Business Intelligence (BI), traditionally has taken the form of nightly or monthly reports and batched analytical queries that are run at specific times of day. However, as the time needed for data to migrate into data warehouses has decreased, and as the amount of data stored has increased, business intelligence has come to include metrics, streaming analysis, and reports with expected delivery times that are measured in hours, minutes, or seconds.
