Data silos are the bane of business intelligence (BI). Improperly aligned big data systems, ill-equipped to handle today's onslaught of data, only further deepen this developing informational chasm.
It's obvious that organizations that are able to incorporate Web activity logs, social networking data and other forms of unstructured data into their data management systems are better positioned for success than their unprepared competitors.
Avoiding the dreaded data silo is challenging, but SearchCIO.com's Linda Tucci attempts to lend a helping hand in the opening article of this insightful edition of BI Trends & Strategies, offering suggestions on how IT, BI and data warehousing teams can tackle these issues.
Of course, no e-zine would be complete without a piece on mobile BI and how Apple's iPad has fueled this increasingly popular trend. Learn from author Nicole Laskowski why mobile BI must be actionable, rather than just pique curiosity.
And the final article delves into the world of performance management. Take some time to read this as BeyeNETWORK expert Craig Schiff serves up tips on avoiding the pitfalls that can plague such performance management initiatives.
