In this issue of the Best of Business Intelligence, Stephen Swoyer names insurgent BI and a return to end-user-oriented BI offerings as some of 2010’s trends, and Philip Russom shares his predictions for the coming year, asserting that advanced analytics has become a nexus for BI and DW.


TDWI's Best of Business Intelligence Volume 7

February 1, 2010

Stephen Swoyer kicks off this issue with a review of recent major BI developments. "2009 in Review: BI's Value Put to the Test" describes 2009 in ups and downs: the year saw more vendor winners than losers, but a down economy and consolidation still claimed others. Swoyer argues that 2009 was "tailor-made to test the very value business intelligence claims to bring to the table."

February 1, 2009

Stephen Swoyer kicks off this issue with a review of recent major BI developments. "The Calm After the Storm" examines this calm but eventful year, discussing the newfound legitimacy of the data warehousing appliance segment and new and ambitious analytic offerings. Swoyer refers to 2008 as "blessedly tumult-free" and notes it was a year "in which several long-simmering trends seemed to coalesce and boil over."


TDWI's Best of Business Intelligence Volume 5

February 1, 2008

Stephen Swoyer kicks off this issue with a review of recent major BI developments. “The Year of Living Dangerously” takes a look back at this year of upheaval, discussing gobbled-up BI and performance management pure-play vendors. He observes that 2007 was “the year in which the large, independent, publicly traded, best-of-breed BI and PM player all but ceased to exist (with a few exceptions).”
