Is Business Activity Monitoring a BI Application?

9/29/2008
A question I posed to a LinkedIn group — Is Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) a BI Application? — sparked interesting discussion. There have been 9 responses to date, including two from Howard Dresner, who has done as much as anyone to shape current-day BI. The responses speak to growing interest in operational BI, and they hint at the impact that complex event processing (CEP) will have on enterprise analytics.

Lyzasoft's Non-Analytical Approach to Analytics

9/22/2008
Lyzasoft, Inc. calls its Lyza software a "powerful desktop analytics solution." According to the company, Lyza "enables analysts to synthesize, explore, and visualize data, then to publish compelling presentations and dashboards." Lyza seems worth considering as a personal data-integration tool, but it appears to fall short of greater claims.

There's more to say about the MySQL data-warehousing context and then there's the puzzle of the significantly delayed MySQL 5.1 general availability (GA) release.

MicroStrategy and SAS Advance Mainstream BI Visualization

9/11/2008
Advanced visualization isn't easy to get right. Some leading BI companies have built out their capabilities nicely — notably MicroStrategy and SAS — while others continue to promote more-of-the-same-but-glitzier graphs and charts. In a worst-case scenario, we even have a major analytics vendor that's fumbled its latest visualization launch.

BSD Licensing Puts the Shine on Google Chrome

9/3/2008
For all the coverage of the Chrome Web browser announcement, little note has been taken of Google's choice of the ultra-liberal BSD open-source license. The BSD choice accentuates that Chrome will be more (and very likely less) than a conventional Web browser. Chrome will contribute Web rendering to an increasingly comprehensive enterprise software platform and may (further) tie non-Google application developers to the Google stack.
