Data cemeteries impede business intelligence use

Industry analysts are falling over themselves to highlight 2005 as the year when business intelligence hits the mainstream. But those looking to implement business intelligence solutions may find their efforts hampered by vast silos of generally incorrect data.
Several industry analysts from different organisations have all picked the last several weeks as a good time to comment on the current and future growth in the domestic market for business intelligence (BI). Frost & Sullivan analyst Foad Fadaghi said of the BI market at last weekend’s KickStart conference in Queensland that “all vendors have had double digit growth in the last 12 months” and that the area is sure to heat up in the next twelve months.
