Business Intelligence Competency Center Market Study
January 1, 2016
A business intelligence competency center is a group within an organization charged with defining, delivering, documenting, and promoting best-practice BI solutions.
In 2015, dashboards, end-user self-service, advanced visualization, and data warehousing lead the list of technologies and initiatives strategic to business intelligence. As in the 2014 study, the data show ongoing focus on fundamental and traditional BI functionality. Operational integration and data discovery also represent fundamental BI focus; only after these do “newer” initiatives including data mining, embedded BI, mobile device support, and in-memory analysis begin to emerge. Complex event processing, Internet of Things, and cognitive BI are the lowest ranked priorities in 2015.
