I’ve recently come accross some interesting figures.

According to Gartner, over 60% of organizations state they have a BI strategy, but despite the many years experience most organizations have with BI, they aren’t doing better in addressing the fundamental challenges of BI.

Gartner estimates that no more than 20% of business users actually use BI proactively. This means that BI is not being widely used to manage performance. And advises that IT must look for means to align BI initiatives with corporate and business objectives. Saying about BI strategy it underlines that it doesn’t mean just choosing which megavendors you will work with. You must keep in mind that the speed of technology change is increasing. There are lots of thechnologies concidered as trends, which have the potential to disrupt the BI marketspace significantly. They are Web 2.0, interactive visualization, in-memory analytics, SaaS, and BI integrated search.

All these topics were discussed at the recent Gartner Business Intelligence Summit 2009 during March 9-11, by the way.
