Implementing BI: History Lessons, From Mainframe to Mobile
By examining the history of Business Intelligence, both its past promise and its real results in intelligence-gathering systems in the business world and in government intelligence (yes the CIA!), we can take the lessons from history and apply them to current BI best practices. Join BI and government intelligence veteran Lou Clark for an examination of the trends and technology that have driven the field of BI and continue to determine its success in BI projects, from the earliest Decision Support on mainframes to today's emerging mobile BI.
We will take a look at the sometimes surprising origins of Business Intelligence and its necessary precursors (“Self-Service End-User Computing”). In fact, we will see that the origins of much of 21st century innovative technology are older and in general, just not what you would have guessed.
