Speaking ahead of the Gartner Business Intelligence Summit 2009 in The Hague, analysts’ predictions ranged from the impact of business units exerting greater control over analytic applications to the effect of the economic crisis and how it will force a renewed focus on information trust and transparency to innovations such as collaborative decision making and trusted data providers.

  2. By 2012, business units will control at least 40 per cent of the total budget for BI
  3. By 2010, 20 per cent of organisations will have an industry-specific analytic application delivered via software as a service (SaaS) as a standard component of their BI portfolio
  4. In 2009, collaborative decision making will emerge as a new product category that combines social software with BI Platform capabilities
  5. By 2012, one-third of analytic applications applied to business processes will be delivered through coarse-grained application mashup
