Today the latest version of the Ventana Research Report on Analytics and Business Intelligence was launched. A copy of the report is available here.The report is of utmost relevance. Very important is their remark of "simplification" expressed in "The expanding use of BI by business people also puts an emphasis on tools being easy to use. The criterion most often identified as very important for business intelligence products is usability. ".
Opposite to other reports which unexpectedly downsized the definition of Business Intelligence onto self-service purely, the Ventana Research reports remains with the correct assumption of Business Intelligence being the concatenation of enterprise managed reporting and dashboarding, with governed self-service and interactive insights.
