The discussion today at the ITA BI Roundtable was “Is BI ready for Cloud Computing? Is Cloud Computing ready for BI?”
It was a lively discussion, with participants from both BI Backgrounds and Cloud Backgrounds.
We used this following materials to support the discussions:
- PowerPoint (with links to references throughout)
- Gartner’s Key Initiatives: Cloud Computing whitepaper
- Gartner’s Who Really Cares about the Cloud
- Gartner’s The Real Truth about Saas
We did look at research other than Gartner, those links are in the PowerPoint PDF
