After the advent of the Internet, “cloud computing” is perhaps the biggest trend in the recent history of the information technology (IT) industry. Having emerged as the ultimate software delivery platform paradigm, cloud computing has dramatically impacted not only the IT industry, but also the way business is conducted. It has accelerated the emergence of highly innovative business intelligence (BI) and business analytics offerings while boosting the evolution and radical adaptation of existing BI and business analytics platforms.
Organizations that are looking to adopt a BI or analytics solution in the cloud, or are currently planning their BI initiative, need to understand the different types of cloud BI software offerings that exist in the market. This buyer’s guide will help you understand the various types of software offerings on the market, give you insight into what your peers are looking for in BI solutions offered in the cloud, provide an overview of the main features and functions of these offerings, and show you how these solutions can help you potentially transform the way you conduct BI and, consequently, your business.
The buyer’s guide further breaks down standard cloud BI and analytics product functionality—particularly SaaS BI and analytics database offerings—and details how a select list of vendors supports those requirements.
Lastly, the guide presents a range of real-life case studies that highlight client successes and thought leadership about relevant cloud BI issues and challenges, and the solutions vendors offer to address them.
