Business Intelligence (BI)

Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

Linux at 25% of Server OS Market - Is Redmond Hearing Footsteps?


Linux has now grabbed 25% of the server operating system market share, passing Novell and knocking on Windows's door.

bi sql server 2005  Meanwhile, all of the combined versions of Unix garnered 15% of the market. But IDC analyst Dan Kusnetzky warned against reading too much in these numbers.

Another trend is that Unix users, in particular, are buying fewer but more powerful servers, said Kusnetzky, thus generating healthy revenue in that space. We are trying to measure Linux with the Read More
