BI Continues to Be Hot Topic and Something Many Companies Want to Implement

An overwhelming number of respondents say it would be important or very important to know what business intelligence (BI) systems offer the best integration with their existing systems, according to findings of a recent survey by Technology Evaluation Centers. That response was consistent across companies of all sizes, and also among respondents at all levels of those companies.

The report resulting from the survey was based on peer data collected from more than 17,000 BI software comparisons performed using the TEC Advisor online software selection application.

A clear majority of respondents indicated it would be important to know what BI systems companies like theirs were purchasing, what budgets those companies had allocated for a BI system purchase, and what features those companies were requesting most frequently.  Interestingly, respondents from mid-sized to large companies were somewhat more likely than their small business counterparts to consider this kind of peer data important.

When asked whether they would be looking for a BI system in the next 12 months, nearly half of all respondents indicated that there was a good or very good chance of doing so.

The full report is available at the consultancy's web site.
