Edwin van der sanden CTO, Corizon gave us an overview of the Corizon platform that they have 6+ years of R&D behind it's designed to make it easy for you to create composite applications or mashups. These types of tools bring significant time and money savings to the enterprise when you need to combine the processes and information found in multiple applications. They provide the design environment along with the run time components to build and maintain the application.

Once completed the applications can stand alone, sit in a portal or be embedded in packaged applications. In todays dynamic M&A atmosphere most companies could probably put this type of solution to use in multiple places. sometimes building the bridge between applications can be the better solve than collecting and integrating and storing the data coming from them.

Dr. Dave Schrader, Director of Marketing, Teradata is starting out with Active Enterprise Intelligence and hitting the following points.

Better, faster decisions that drive actions
Responsive and agile, sense and respond

Consistency – single view of the business
Scope – across appropriate business functions
Reach – new operational users, processes, and applications

“Strategic” Intelligence, aligned to drive
“Operational” Intelligence, backed by the facts

So the question is, can your company do this with your business intelligence? Teradata tends to be on the leading edge of where most business intelligence installations are. The recent launch of an Analytical Platforms family of solutions from Teradata will open the door for more of you to experience this type of BI/DW value. Here's a link to a recent post I did on the launch

Kristina Kerr Senior Product Manager for Microsoft Business Intelligence is presenting and helping the group connect the dots of the Microsoft business intelligence strategy. In the world of information overload Microsoft is using SharePoint to organize and deliver our business information more relevant and focused. Kristina makes an interesting point around the "vision" slide in her deck...this slide is old and that's good because Microsoft has had a BI strategy in place for 10 years and they are on target and executing to their plan.

The basics of the Microsoft plan is to help you as a user get to the following:
"Personal and Organic" BI and "Shared and Intentional" BI

Goal for Self Service Personal/Organic Business Intelligence
Easy discovery of data
Simple intuitive tools Adhoc
creative and agile

Goal for Shared and Intentional Business Intelligence or Performance Management
Consistent Corp definitions, KPI's
Corporate Polices and processes
Contextual and accountable

Microsoft continues to show greater levels of integration within its various applications pulling business intelligence and performance management onto the desktop and making the average user unaware that they are using business intelligence. All of which is positive.

Good morning from Phoenix and the Independent Analyst Platform (IAP) Informatica's Karen Hsu is kicking things off this morning talking about the Informatica platform and it's continued growth and focus with on-demand integration, enterprise data integration and b2b data integration. This three way approach is a good strategy for Informatica. The b2b Data Exchange offering is the newest part of the solution providing a platform that can handle integrated business partner data.

Other recent changes include Informatica's ability to do real-time data integration and its recent acquisition of Identity systems that now adds multilingual name matching to the Informatica suite.
