The last two years have seen an explosion of new database and appliance technologies to accelerate query performance for decision support applications. These new technologies promise to open up new possibilities for the kinds of applications and ad hoc access that BI teams can offer to their most data-hungry users. This session will examine the playing field for new query acceleration technologies—including appliances, columnar databases, high-performance clusters, and in-memory analytics to name a few—and outline how they enable organizations to move beyond general reporting to true, interactive analytics.

Now that major applications vendors have acquired the leading BI players, it's time to reassess the validity of packaged analytic applications. When a single vendor manages both operational and analytical processes, there are many opportunities to tighten integration between the two and accelerate the deployment of analytical capabilities. Applications vendors can embed BI into core operational applications and, conversely, use analytics to update operational systems. This Webinar will examine the past, present, and future of packaged analytic applications and help you evaluate when it makes sense to buy an analytic solution in today's consolidated world of enterprise software – and when it makes more sense to build one.

BI tools have changed dramatically in recent years as users demand easier ways to get to their data and share insights. While power users have been the initial adopters of BI tools, new capabilities that emphasize ease of use are appealing to new classes of users. Business users want the simplicity of the Google interface (think “Top 10 Customer Sales”) to build a new query or to find a report amid potentially thousands. The convergence of business intelligence with enterprise search is a new concept that makes this simplicity possible. This webinar covers the concepts and provides a demonstration of how one vendor is delivering the capabilities.
