Cloud Computing concepts promise new options for an internet based resourcing of hardware and software. Cloud BI Portal will provide a utility model of computing with lower entry and maintenance cost and multiple delivery models. It will result in better adoption of BI systems mainly in case of small scale organizations where cost factor is a major concern. The target market for Cloud-BI software is currently small scale companies or organizations with few IT resources, limited budget to spend on servers and software, and minimal to no BI expertise.
