Business Intelligence Spending Seen Picking Up
By W. Gardner
Spending on business intelligence (BI) in IT departments is picking up steam, two market research reports said Thursday.
Ventana Research said its survey of 320 firms revealed that adoption and plans for adoption for open source BI is progressing more rapidly than previously understood.
“Eighty-three percent of organizations are considering, are in the process of deploying, or have already implemented open source BI,” the Ventana announcement stated. “Only four percent of respondents said they would not deploy more open source BI in the future based on their current experience.”
