Pervasive business intelligence - BI for the masses - is often discussed, but rarely achieved. Conventional BI approaches have enjoyed limited success, partly due to the high up-front costs and complexity that often comes with those solutions. However, prior Aberdeen Group research shows increasing interest in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business intelligence, with twice as many organizations using this deployment approach as one year ago - 15% in 2009 compared to 7% in 2008.
Key findings are that the SaaS deployment approach make BI available to new user populations, that it fosters a more agile approach to BI, and that it changes the economics of BI deployments.
