Is BI Really for Everyone?


BI for Large Enterprises

Because of the nature of BI, which traditionally involved the incorporation of expensive high-end software technology, BI software systems were first deployed in large enterprises. To encompass the complete BI life cycle process, it was necessary to have strong budgets, as well as the means and justification for taking financial risks in order to gain a competitive advantage. To achieve this competitive advantage, many large companies were eager for software tools that would enable them to improve their decision-making process. Some software companies responded to this need by accelerating the evolution of classical decision support systems to provide sophisticated analysis tools with high-end software technology. Naturally, the high cost of these types of tools limited their accessibility to large-scale companies (also, the technical requirements for this technology could be met by big corporations only).

In the last four or five years, economic factors as well as the exponential growth of data volumes generated by organizations have forced the development of very sophisticated BI applications, and also expanded the kind of tools a classical BI system normally uses. The BI space is still growing and maturing, and large corporations are still demanding new solutions for new enterprise needs.


BI for SMBs

With recent economic conditions and the information boom, many smaller companies have found themselves requiring analysis tools that enable them to improve their business monitoring and performance improvement strategies. BI solution innovation has cascaded down from large companies to provide adapted and specific services to companies with a need for advanced analytic software tools but with very limited budgets. Recent BI tools have improved the BI life cycle to help organizations of every size and shape to improve analysis, data management, and data visualization tools.
