The role of business intelligence applications within organizations will continue to increase as organizations move towards operational BI and start to adopt non-traditional methods of deploying BI. However, as many companies move along a BI maturity model, other organizations that are beginning to consider BI don't know where to start.  


In addition to the sheer number of solutions available, as solutions can be customized to offer the required features and functionality to target unique requirements, the ability to identify key  product differentiations seem minimal at best. This only adds to general confusion about where organizations should start and what they should be looking for.  
For some reason there is an assumption that organizations are already aware of what options are available.  Generally, vendors play to this view and market themselves to compete with their competitors, but not to help increase awareness of the intrinsic value of BI, how it can help organizations, and where they fit in the full spectrum of the market.
