Its a growing trend as more front end BI vendors are seeing the light when it comes to working with the analytic server vendors. Sybase is well positioned to make friends with many of the front end leaders. Utilizing the Sybase IQ analytic server will add horsepower to the dashboards that Microstrategy delivers. The partnership will deliver an integrated package and pricing in an on MicroStrategy products when sold with its Sybase® IQ analytics server.

A couple other upsides to this union are Sybase's ability to bring in MicroStrategy consulting and education services plus offering a one stop shop for clients challenged at both ends of the BI stack.

"Business intelligence and data warehousing solutions are expected to take on an increasing value in the present economic environment," said Dan Vesset, IDC Program Vice President of Business Analytics. "IDC believes the extension of the alliance between Sybase and MicroStrategy will simplify the acquisition, deployment, and use of the combined solution thus helping customers maximize the value of their BI investments."

I think this is a good direction for both companies, they have worked together for 10+ years so this step forward seems to be logical and well timed.

I got a full briefing on the new Logi 8 product last week and I have to say that I am impressed. LogiXML is doing things a bit differently than the rest and it adds value for the customer. The LogiXML solution is completely web based can save a company upwards of 80% when compared against other providers in the space and with this launch offers a complete full featured integrated BI stacked solution.

LogiXML has been in the market since 2000 and has a large user base. They tend to take the development cycle quite seriously and are almost always making improvements to the system. The new Version 8 brings together their 4 main products Logi 8 Ad Hoc Reporting, Logi 8 Info, Logi 8 Mart, Logi 8 OLAP Reporting into a fully featured BI architecture.

I recommend that you include LogiXML on your short list when comparing vendors in this area. LogiXML is competitive feature for feature with the more prominent enterprise class names in the space.

In the movie Minority Report Tom Cruise plays a detective who uses the forecasting ability of three psychics to determine when and where crimes will be committed thus almost eliminating crime.

It looks like the folks at SPSS thought it would be a great business intelligence application. They are launching a map-based application that forecasts the locations most likely to experience crime in a specified time period based on historic and current criminal statistics.

The data to analyze where the local law enforcement agency should best deploy officers is pulled from records management systems and database repositories.

I'll be interested to see what the reduction in crime is after the system has been in place for a year.
