Ouch that's a tough title isn't?

But it is part of the insights that BARC found in its latest version of The BI Survey 8 by Nigel Pendse. 2622 professionals took part in the survey this year creating an incredible pool of insight into the business intelligence market.

"BI vendors have a much rosier view of their offerings than their customers," said Nigel Pendse, author of The BI Survey 8. "This discrepancy is particularly evident in the perception of support quality provided by vendors. More than 51% of vendors claimed they delivered excellent product support, but only 27% of users and 24% of implementation consultants agreed."

"But it doesn't end there," Pendse continued. "While vendors do not believe slow query performance is a significant issue, it is the most commonly-reported problem by users. Instead, vendors blame BI deployment problems on customer issues, such as poor quality data and company politics. Vendors are unlikely to fix product problems that they don't even acknowledge."

The Survey provides detailed information on 23 BI products from vendors including IBM, Microsoft (MSFT), Oracle (ORCL) and SAP, BARC is a partner of the Network so I get to see the entire report and I have to admit its one of the strongest I've seen. If your looking into a new BI solution you eally need to get a copy of this report.

Things continue to evolve in a positive direction for Dataupia Corporation; they are announcing the placement of Tony Sirianni as president and Chief Executive Officer. Founder Foster Hinshaw, and CTO John O'Brien, will continue to drive the technology side of the company. Sirianni brings over 18 years of Business Intelligence experience to the company, his most recent experience coming from Cognos as SVP Worldwide Field Operations.

The addition of Sirianni marks a turning point for Dataupia as it leaves its start up roots behind and aligns the company for the next step forward. Sirianni's background is focused on revenue growth and go to market strategies that will surely enhance the good things already in place at Dataupia.

Kognitio announced a new customer win this week: the National Center for Genome Resources is using the Kognitio solution to process multiple terabytes of sequencing data.

Kognitio is finding a great opportunity in the bioinformatics field and it seems to be setting them apart from many of their competitors. They've done a solid job of not only meeting the analytic needs of NCGR but also positioning themselves as a partner for the future needs of the group. The ability to bring specialty or highly focused analytics to this space is a good move for the company.

Kognitio is doing a great job of executing on their expansion into the US market and has now announced several high profile clients in the US. With additions to the marketing, sales and executive ranks here in the states they are going to be a significant player as more end users look to the market for innovative solutions. I have to say that I'm also a big fan of the flexibility of the solution it includes a Data warehouse as a Service (DaaS) offering that can be hosted on either side of your firewall.
