This white paper offers criteria and guidelines for selecting the most appropriate BI platform for your needs. It helps your organization better evaluate its alternatives and assists your evaluation team in making an intelligent and appropriate BI choice. Ultimately, your choice appeals to all your organization's constituencies, including the IT department, technical and nontechnical business users and analysts, and corporate finance.
