What's Your Secret to Success?

Is the economy helping or hurting your BI efforts? Maybe a down economy is forcing you to work smarter, or maybe layoffs and budget cuts are putting a dent in your BI strategy. Two years ago, 42% of you had standardized on a BI platform. Have industry consolidation or the economy changed that? And if so, which vendors are you standardizing on?

Two years ago, as part of the research for this book, you helped me identify those factors that most make or break your BI deployment. I'd like to know if anything has changed since then.

Take the updated survey here. As before, it's not vendor-sponsored. Is the economy helping or hurting your BI efforts? Maybe a down economy is forcing you to work smarter, or maybe layoffs and budget cuts are putting a dent in your BI strategy. Two years ago, 42% of you had standardized on a BI platform (see chart below). Have industry consolidation or the economy changed that? And if so, which vendors are you standardizing on?As your time is valuable and we are all strapped for cash, the first 200 respondents will be entered in a random drawing for 10 $50 gift cards. All survey respondents will receive a summary of key findings.

For more insights, be sure to catch my keynote at TDWI in Orlando in November!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Regards, Cindi
