Cloud Computing and BI


BI in Cloud Computing is extending upon both the SaaS and PaaS models, as well as incorporating a new aaS appendage - DaaS [Data as a Service or DataWarehouse as a Service].

Throughout 2008, both mainstream and startup software vendors have been launching hosted business intelligence (BI) solutions under the banners of:

  • on-demand BI
  • BI software-as-a-service (SaaS), and
  • BI in the cloud

This is causing some confusion as to exactly which BI applications are being hosted in a Cloud computing environment.

Taking a look at six different business intelligence product offerings announced this year:

Panorama Software’s PowerApps - a cloud hosted extension of the PowerApps engine behind the reporting and analytics capability of GoogleApps/Docs. More about PowerApps Cloud BI

Vertica Analytic Database for the Cloud - a hosted and scalable version of Vertica’s columnar relational database system. Supported by Amazon’s Elastic Computer Cloud

Kognitio’s Data Warehousing as a Service (DaaS) - hosted and scalable version of Kognitio’s relational database system.

LucidEra - hosted BI analytical applications focused on converting marketing leads; integrates with Salesforce.com and other CRM offerings. More about LucidEra BI SaaS

Business Objects Business Intelligence OnDemand - a hosted version of the BusinessObjects XI BI tools product set. Other hosted Business Objects applications include: Crystalreports.com for sharing reports over the web, Information OnDemand for third-party market and financial data, and Business Applications OnDemand, a set of hosted applications (acquired from Nsite) for quote and proposal management.

PivotLink - hosted analytical and reporting tools with pre-built industry specific metrics.
