Closing the Loop in a Consolidated BI World: Evaluating Packaged BI Applications

Webinar Abstract
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.

You will learn:

  • The short history of packaged analytic applications
  • The promise of packaged analytic applications
  • The reality of packaged analytic applications
  • New developments in packaged analytic applications
  • Tradeoffs between building and buying an analytic application
