I don't have to tell you that Performance Management delivers some of the best ROI from your business intelligence systems. The ability to act upon your information or to be proactive is really what business intelligence is all about. Every year the smart folks over at BPM Partners do a comprehensive survey on the state of the market. It only takes about 15 minutes to participate and when the research is completed you will receive a copy of the results.

I was listening to my favorite podcast program today (This Week in Tech - TWIT 183) and writer, new media expert Corey Doctorow put a fine point on how media is evolving. He talked about the way that technology can force a chasm and then perhaps acceptance. And that the old media delivery systems tend to get folded into the new. The first published newspaper was the The Boston News-Letter, a weekly which debuted in 1704 I'm not sure how it performed from a financial perspective but it did spawn an industry that is now evolving away from its roots landing publications online or on devices like the Amazon Kindle and iPhone.

Perhaps the future of newspaper may in fact parallel that of other media that came before it like opera and poetry which are generally not a profitable today and in the case of Opera are often funded by the wealthy. In a future world the idea of a viable newspaper model may be something printed on a expensive cloth, ironed by the butler and delivered to the rich weirdo in the penthouse.

I think it draws an interesting parallel to what is happening in our industry. The old delivery systems are getting folded into the new. Early on reporting seemed to have significant value it didn't even need to be pretty it was just great to have. Reporting, while still valuable is giving way to Performance Management and the ability to respond verses observe this is the value many companies need from BI today. The systems of today are focusing on mass adoption, A-ha moments that allow users to deep dive and explore and added value from unstructured and semi-structured sources not previously part of the equation. What are these technologies going to fold into? Is it Real-time access, SaaS, Embedded Business Intelligence, Open Source? Which of these will force the irrefutable chasm that will spawn the next age of business intelligence?

So the question remains,  is the business intelligence system you have today best suited for rich weirdo's?
