BI - Today and Tomorrow
BI has been one of the most important business initiatives providing positive impact on the health of organizations. Usually, questions are raised on the maturity of the BI initiative and the technology backbone to yield business benefits. And after getting the desired benefits from the BI initiative, the obvious question has been \"What next?\". For more than two decades, organizations have been leveraging Business Intelligence (BI) platforms with the sole objective of 'Management by facts' for business benefits. Traditionally, BI platforms have been spanning across Information Integration (e.g. ETL, EAI/ESB, CDC), Information Storage (e.g. Data Warehouse, Cubes, Metadata) and Information Analytics (e.g. Enterprise Reports, OLAP Reports, Dashboards and Data Mining) components.
