That is why we set out on our Agile BI initiative, to solve these obvious problems that other vendors ignore. The market and competitive response to our Agile BI initiative has been fun to watch. Suddenly, lots of competitors are talking about how to make their technology more agile and industry analysts are again writing about agile as well.
Unfortunately, competitors miss the point. Pentaho’s Agile BI initiative looks to make things simpler, not more complex. This isn’t about adding more technology to the mix, this is about using the technology that we already have in more agile and elegant ways so that we can bridge the chasm between IT and business users. It’s not about long winded explanations of technology infrastructure that only technology geniuses can understand, it’s about opening up the BI process so that IT and business users can collaborate and deploy business relevant BI application quicker.
Isn’t that the real point of BI, getting at more information quicker?
