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.

Does Microsoft Have Something Against 64-Bit Processors?


More cracks appear in the Wintel duolith, as Linux appears to be the first OS “ready for prime time” on Intel’s 64-bit “Itanium” processor. Despite Microsoft’s statements to the contrary, Linux may also be the only 64-bit OS on Itanium for awhile.

Digital/Compaq learned the hard way that 32-bit apps running on 64-bit hardware do not necessarily run faster. Users should exercise appropriate caution regarding promises made in anticipation of Itanium, relative to performance boosts. One other side issue: Itanium (unlike AMD's Sledgehammer 64-bit processor) is not strictly compatible with the current x86 architecture. This will further muddy the 64-bit Read More
