Andrew Bartels Vice President at Forrester Research gave all of us a Glimpse into the next Tech Boom. Andrew illustrated how Digital Business Architecture (DBA) will fuel the growth in tech investment in 2008 -2016. Here are just a few of the business issues DBA will address:

  • Making large legacy systems more flexible
  • Improving process effectiveness and performance management
  • Simplifying regulatory compliance
  • Connecting with distributed customers
  • Connecting with distributed suppliers
  • Connecting with distributed workforce
  • Connecting with distributed assets
  • Supporting collaborative processes

The content here is excellent, if you are looking for a technology conference that will plug you in on many levels this show is a good bet. Over 1000 attendees, nice venue: Mandalay Bay in Vegas, excellent speakers etc. If you aren't here be sure to pencil it in for next year.

I got to review a great report today written by Forrester Analyst Keith Gile and team. Title "TheForrester Wave: BI Reporting and Analysis Platforms, Q1 2006" It's an interesting look at the state and direction for Analytic Reporting and Enterprise Reporting. Forrester evaluated 10 leading business intelligence (BI), database, and application vendors across 92 criteria and found Business Objects has established early BI platform leadership, followed by Cognos. Hyperion, MicroStrategy, and SAS offer strong enterprise analytics, while Actuate and Information Builders are strong in enterprise reporting and scalability. Microsoft's latest release offers tighter integration with Microsoft Office, while Oracle and SAP emphasize integration with their respective enterprise applications over deeper reporting functionality.

The report is available at the Forrester site.
