Business Intelligence SIG: What is driving the shift toward On-Demand BI



  • Topic: What is driving the shift toward On-Demand BI?”

    “On-demand computing is the future of software, and the future of BI, at least for the small-medium size business market, if not for a majority of standard enterprise reporting applications.”
    Wayne Eckerson, The Data Warehouse Institute 3/6/07

    Topic Description: This session will present an overview of the AppExchange and outline how it is helping to drive the business intelligence market shift towards the on-demand model. From traditional BI market leaders such as Business Objects and Cognos to innovative new companies like LucidEra, the Analytics category of the AppExchange has quickly become one of the fastest growing areas of the on-demand marketplace. Through focused programs such as the AppExchange Incubator, Salesforce is partnering with best-of-breed BI vendors to go well beyond traditional CRM. This session will outline some of the consumer web concepts that are driving the movement towards on-demand BI and an overview of some of the AppExchange Analytics solutions.

    Presenter: Darren Cunningham spent 7 years in corporate product marketing at Business Objects and joined Salesforce in June 2006. He manages the Analytics and Data Management categories on the AppExchange.
