Business Intelligence on the Cloud: Overview and Use Cases
The use of Business Intelligence (BI) in the cloud is a game-changer, as it makes BI affordable and easily available as compared to traditional BI. It is expected that customers will slowly but surely migrate from in house BI to BI in the cloud. Cloud Computing was a big topic of discussion in the early part of 2010 and many vendors developed strategies and solutions around Cloud BI in 2011. Customers are expected to continue their shift to the cloud in 2012, helped in part by big vendors enabling their traditional BI solutions as a cloud offering in an attempt to capture more of the mid-size market.
