Matching Business Intelligence with Cloud Computing

October 13, 2009

I really liked this post which talks about how could we make use of Cloud Computing in building Business Intelligence solution to draw the Big Image for the organizations

With Cloud Computing fast becoming the next big thing in IT, the jury is still out on how it can best be matched up with Business Intelligence (BI) to deliver real and sustainable benefits to business.

The focus of BI is the gathering, modelling, transforming and analysis of data (often from disparate systems), in order to provide a “big picture” to a business. Traditionally, BI has lagged behind the business it is meant to support. Reporting and data analysis can take a long time to process, and may run outside of business hours in order to reduce impact on the day-to-day operations. Businesses must wait to understand what is going on, and rely on old information to make decisions.

Enter Cloud Computing. The main benefits include lower cost, multiple redundant sites, and scalable provisioning of resources, which in turn allow for business continuity, disaster recovery and on-demand performance improvements.
