I just read a great post on Evaluating BI Solutions: Who Should Be On the Decision-Making Team? at Business Intelligence Advantages a blog hosted by Amine Mekkaoui.

Amine makes good points about why all these groups should be in the mix. I have to admit I don't always think of including the External Partners.

  • Executive management.
  • Line of business users.
  • IT staff.
  • External partners

Is it me or shouldn't every city have a business intelligence and performance management system like the one just rolled out in New York? The new Citywide Performance Reporting (CPR) system powered by Oracle and designed to give every citizen insight into 40 agencies and 100's of KPI's is a very cool idea.

Any citizen logged into the system can quickly have a dashboard view of just about any city agencies performance. If your interested in street cleaning, potholes or the trend this past year on firefighter response time its all at your fingertips. The performance indicators provide insight into critical agency measures and performance comparisons over time. It's graphical and very easy to use.

So does this mean that the 8.2 million residents of New York are part of the worlds most pervasive Performance Management system? I'm not sure but I really wish my city offered this type of insight.

Did you know that murder is down 18% in New York this year? The citizens of NY do.


Here a couple interesting links to the story.

PS. - I promised Ron Baker CEO of ETI that if he lasted longer in the tournament than I did I would announce in my blog that he is in fact a better poker player than me so true to my word this is my official announcement.

Ron Baker beat me at poker.

It's crazy here at the show, tons of people and lots of great meetings. I realize the economy may be slowing down but it doesn't look like the news has reached the business intelligence space. Lots of big plans, product roll outs and more. I got in last night and have already talked with ParAccel, Teradata, Sybase, Kognitio, IBM, Vertica, Microsoft, SAS and Syncsort.

Watch for podcast interviews on the home page this afternoon or subscribe at iTunes to get them!

Our 4th Annual Poker Party is tonight if you want to participate send a note to Kym Wootton at Kwootton@b-eye-network.com to reserve a spot. Seating is limited and we are almost full so act fast.

See you in Las Vegas!
