SAP Takes Another Step Towards Agile BI with KXEN Acquisition


Business Intelligence (BI) is a perennial green that simply refuses to give up and get commoditized.  Even though very few vendors try to differentiate these days on commodity features like point and click, drag and drop, report grouping, ranking, sorting filtering (those that still do – get with the program!), there are still plenty of innovative and differentiated features to master. We categorize these capabilities under the aegis of Forrester Agile BI and they include

  • Making BI more automated (suggestive BI, auto-information discovery, contextual BI, integrated and full BI life cycle, BI on BI),
  • More pervasive (embedding BI in within applications and processes, within the information workplace, and collaborative, self-service, mobile and cloud based BI)
  • More unified (unifying structured data and unstructured content, batch and streaming BI, historical and predictive, and handling complex non-relational data structures), and
  • Breaking through BI limitations (with exploration and discovery, flexible, adaptable data models, and advanced data visualization)
