What are you basing your opionion on? I have seen no references to articles or statements from HP indicating that they are getting out of the BI platform market.

I give you a lot of credit for this research article. It is shame on HP's CIO Randy Mott and his team to execute such a wonderful concept (EDW) to a tragic failure. What amuses me is, Randy's lack of knowledge about EDW and BI. No one person with an iota of IT knowledge would call a database (Neoview) as a BI solution. DW and BI are two different entities.

This shows they werent adequately prepared for this initiative. They instead wanted to use this as a selling point and bring the business on board with them to agree the data center consolidation and application decommissioning. Once DCC and application retirement objectives were achieved, the steam is shut down for the EDW/BI initiative.

This IT project failure would certainly be a part of 'IT Hall of Shame' for years to come.
