Business Intelligence for SMBs: MBS Excel Applications and Competitive Analysis


Companies relying on an Excel or Excel-like system need to know that, while Excel might suffice for ad hoc analysis and data storage for individuals or small groups, the technological flaw of data and referential integrity prevents it from a corporate-wide, collaborative effort like planning and budgeting, not to mention product development and sourcing.

Accelerating (and Fast-Starting) the SME Business at Oracle (and SAP) - Part 4


Part 1 of this blog series outlined Oracle’s recent (and seemingly genuine) change of heart and approach towards partnering and catering enterprise applications to small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Evolutionary Technologies Does EAI (Always Did, We Just Didn’t Call It That)


Evolutionary Technologies (ETI) has announced the newest release of their flagship product, ETI•EXTRACT Tool Suite Release 4.2. ETI·Extract has long been well known as an ETL (extract/transform/load) tool, only recently have companies begun to realize that data extraction and consolidation are key underpinnings for EAI efforts, proven by the fact that ETI’s year-over-year Q4 revenue in the Americas increased by 20%.

etl scenarios  IBM . If the ETL effort is to support an EAI initiative, various players in the EAI space such as Tibco , Vitria , webMethods , WRQ , and IBM should also be interviewed for a proposed solution. Companies should keep a strong focus on exactly what goal they are trying to achieve, the steps required to achieve it, and how the vendor's proposed solution maps to those steps. In this way, scenarios used during the selection process can be carefully scripted to highlight how close each vendor comes to the Read More

Continuous Data Quality Management: The Cornerstone of Zero-Latency Business Analytics Part 2: One Solution


Most enterprises fight fires with axes, fire hoses, trucks, and hordes of firemen, but the CDQM approach is a smoke detector. It’s far less expensive to put a fire out when it’s just smoldering, rather than to extinguish a blazing house fire and then remodel the entire house.

etl scenarios  in place during this ETL process would prevent this data nightmare from occurring. Another problem occurred during the Systron integration when IT combined the two companies' parts and inventory tables. Like the customer account number fiasco, Systron used alphanumeric parts numbers in relational tables from each of its divisions. Huntington only had one master table, with numeric parts listings. When Huntington's IT department combined Systron's multiple alphanumeric tables into Huntington's master Read More

Wrapping Up FOSS Predictions for 2010 with a Look Back

Innovations in Business Intelligence


Business intelligence (BI) is in the midst of a new wave of innovations. Ideas in the search space, software as a service, and real-time analytics are extending the reach of BI across the complete size spectrum of organizations.
