Business intelligence – still an oxymoron?
Tell us what’s really going on
Reg reader study It’s been a while since we’ve asked any questions about business intelligence.
To the infoliterati, it’s a specialist domain that needs many years’ experience before it even starts to make sense. To outsiders however, it’s about whether or not the right information is there at the right time – and quite frequently, often it's not.
The ultimate irony of IT is that we talk about technology far more than we talk about the information it’s supposed to maintain and deliver. Now’s your chance to change all that by letting us know just how information is seen, and what capabilities you’re putting in place to deal with it. We know you’re busy people so we’ve kept things as short as we can while still giving us – and therefore you – a thorough picture of the BI landscape today.
So put down your complex metadata systems for dummies guides and pick up your pens, and we’ll pull it all together again.
