Hi and welcome to my blog. I want to use this to communicate the up and coming trends in biz intelligence, enterprise data management, including master data, enterprise information integration, operational intelligence, and historical insight including predictives. The overarching aim though is to focus on the areas of data integration which actually deliver increases in business performance. A lot of sales fluff goes into making up new acronyms and jargon. I’m not a big fan of all this.

To start, let’s go for a ‘state of the nation’ around this wide area. What will BI, data integration actually consist of in the next year or two. Here’s a load of words. I’ll follow up on these in the future

Master data management(including customer, product, organisation, and the other big dimensions of a business)

Enterprise metadata

Operational analytics. (is this an oxymoron?)

Predictive algorithms (the future – David Bodanis when he addressed the firm last week)

Historical integration (traditional data warehousing? )
The big question is, as always, why? We’ll follow these up over the coming weeks.
