Business Intelligence Tools 

 

There are quite a few BI tools available in the market, Microstrategy, Business Object, Brio and Oracle Discoverer are some of these. I had a chat with a DWH Architect the other day and he insisted SAS is can not be categorized as BI tool. Does anyone agree with that? I have no experience with SAS other than having a look at the functional interface.

Also, which one is currently considered the most popular BI tool going with application that include DWH architecture?

Will appreciate the input.

Re: Business Intelligence Tools 

This is something you could spend quite a bit of time arguing over, and different Analysts/Developers & Architects will give varying answers.  It really depends on how 'Tight' your definition of a BI Tool is, and the kind of functionality you believe such products should posses.

For a commonly used definition, Gartner use 12 Key Capabilities to mark a product as a Full BI Tool, and SAS is featured in their latest 'Magic Quandrant' (Can be found here: http://mediaproducts.gartner.com/reprints/sas/vol5/article8/article8.html).  In terms of the big players it's currently Oracle OBIEE, Cognos & Business Objects, personal preference is for OBIEE, but I think it's quite a closely run thing with current popularity/adoption rates.

Re: Business Intelligence Tools 

SAS, BO and Microstrategy are the ones I heard most. Don't really know how Microsoft BI tool is doing in the market... what do they call it? I am thinking there may be a proper name of this one...
