2012 - Big Data:
End of the World or End of BI?
Thursday, June 28, 12 PM EST, 4 PM UTC
According to some, the world will end at the Winter Solstice this year. If not, it’s certainly time to take a closer look at Business
Intelligence (BI) and ask: “After 20 years, is it still fit for
purpose? Can it deliver the type of support needed
for decision-making in the next decade?”
We are witnessing the birth of a new “biz-tech
ecosystem,” where business and technology have
become symbiotic and collaborative behavior is
the norm. In this environment, decision-making is
very different from what is supported by today’s BI.
This webinar explores the emerging ecosystem and
poses some interesting challenges for BI vendors
and implementers in 2013... Assuming we’re all still
here... You will learn about:
