The Future of Business Intelligence - Jay Horton, Managing Director Strategis Partners
It's now almost 20 years since "Business Intelligence" emerged as an umbrella term to describe concepts and methods to improve business decision-making by using fact-based support systems.
However, over the past decade signs of discontent have emerged. The alternative view is that BI outcomes might be thought as misguided through over focusing on measurement to create the illusion of control. Failures of imagination and motivation may be greater strategic hazards facing all large corporations going forward. Jay's presentation will explain how the historic model of BI will need to be re-framed over the next decade if BI professionals are to remain valuable to their clients.
