The need for providing information to a broad set of middle management and business professionals when and how they need it requires a nimble and small-footprint BI environment. For many organizations this is not an easy step because of the diversity of technologies from data sources, application servers and applications. Our research shows sharing data across silos and domain expertise is still a major issue in organizations today. Decisions cannot wait for traditional ETL batch movement from data sources and need simpler access to interactive reports and multi-dimensional analytics.

Join Mark Smith, Ventana Research EVP of Research, to discuss how to bridge information gap with new approaches in providing the right information to the right people, when and how they need it.
