Traditional Business Intelligence (BI) approaches have fallen short in delivering the expected value and return on investment. High costs, lengthy implementations and increasing complexity have led to frustration and disappointment for many enterprises. However, a new generation of BI tools is emerging. Data discovery tools promise to overcome many of the disadvantages of traditional BI tools, delivering more flexibility, ease of use and productivity at a fraction of the cost and time. During the last ten years the approach to business management has deeply changed, and companies have understood the importance of enforcing achievement of the goals defined by their strategy through metrics-driven management.
