Not Pictured

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



Ok, so the cats out of the bag. Now what? Are we seeing the beginning of a major consolidation phase in the business intelligence markets. As most of you know it has been listed as the top technology priority by most major corporations so if there was ever a time to build your solutions portfolio I would guess its now. Will the biggest IT players in the marketplace be able to stay on the sidelines or does Oracle's move force everyones' hand?

Who will buy who next?

IBM buys Cognos?
HP buys BO?
Or does Microsoft shift gears and buy its way deeper into the BI space?

Will the consolidation make players like Kalido and SAS even stronger as companies with heterogenous environments find the markets solutions less open?

Lots of questions, this should be an interesting time for the business intelligence arena.
