Abstract

The use of Business Intelligence (BI) in the cloud is a game-changer, as it makes BI affordable and easily available as compared to traditional BI. It is expected that customers will slowly but surely migrate from in-house BI to BI in the cloud. Cloud Computing was a big topic of discussion in the early part of 2010 and many vendors developed strategies and solutions around Cloud BI in 2011. Customers are expected to continue their shift to the cloud in 2012, encouraged by big vendors enabling their traditional BI solutions as a cloud offering and having seen successful implementations where the movement to Cloud has shown substantial benefits. Vendors are also committed to further strengthen their cloud BI offerings with a view to addressing current inhibitors that customers have and refine the migration approach to promote better adoption. This paper touches upon the drivers and challenges related to Cloud BI, and can act as a source of information related to leading Cloud BI vendors. It also covers a few sample use cases where Cloud BI could be evaluated and recommended solutions for each scenario. A real life implementation case study detailed towards the end of the paper would provide more information on the benefits accrued by migrating to a Cloud Data warehouse.
