I attended the IBM On Demand event earlier this month at the Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas. The turn out was great over 6,500 attendees. I did several interviews that will appear here in the next day or so the first is with Mel Zeledon Senior Vice President of Global Alliances for Cognos. We covered a wide range of topics including the importance of vertical business intelligence solutions, Business intelligence challenges to companies outside the US, solutions and focus on the SMB markets, the Cognos business intelligence appliance, the Applix acquisition and of course the recent consolidation in the BI market.

I thought I'd do a bit of a recap on the event so far. Its my first visit to London so everything here is a bit new. I can saw however that there is a certain element of comfort in that I have gotten to see many of my friends at the event. The attendance is great over 600+ and the content is reasonably solid as well. I say reasonably only because they are forced to span the advanced to the elementary in many of the talks so its difficult to keep all of us happy all the time.

Andreas Bitterer kicked things off yesterday and shared his latest research: Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms, 1Q07. The leaders quadrant continues to contain Business Objects, Cognos, Hyperion, Oracle and SAS. New comer to the report is Spotfire who was included due to it's "innovative analysis capabilities and positioning".

Microsoft's Alex Payne spoke in a session yesterday to a standing room only audience as he presented the importance of pervasive business intelligence. An interesting point was discussed during the session concerning pricing. The bottom line being that low cost or "cheap pricing" doesn't always mean that a product isn't enterprise quality or feature rich. Alex drove the point home by unveiling the new pricing options available and it caused a few gasps in the room. In short, enterprise ready business intelligence at extremely aggressive pricing has officially arrived.

Several people left the room in a rush after the slide went up, its possible not everyone in the space is pleased with the new pricing?

I hope to have more on the Microsoft piece today.
