New BI Guide helps companies cut through the BI confusion
June 2013 Lombard, IL
After experiencing exponential growth over the last few years, the Business Intelligence (BI) software market slowed slightly in 2012. According to the research firm, Gartner, confusion surrounding BI technology terms played a significant role in this slowdown. The fact is, despite having more options than ever before, businesses face a growing problem: With an ever-increasing number of BI vendors touting their own solutions and terminology, choosing a BI solution is now a confusing process.
To help address this growing issue, software platform developer mrc announces the release of a new Business Intelligence Guide entitled, "Essential Features of a Good Business Intelligence Solution." The new guide helps companies cut through the BI confusion and understand which features and capabilities they must target in a BI solution. It breaks the criteria up into four categories:
"We see so much confusion surrounding the topic of Business Intelligence," says Sal Stangarone, mrc's Senior Product Consultant. "Companies don't fully understand all of the terminology and their available options. Hopefully, this BI Guide will educate these companies, and help them avoid any costly mistakes."###
