January 12, 2012 – Over the next three years, less than one-third of business intelligence ventures will meet with their greatest strategic challenge, alignment with enterprise objectives, according to a new Gartner report on the three main issues facing BI.

At issue are BI development and deployments that focus on rear-looking reports and query applications that access “interesting metrics,” though not analytics that truly connect with business performance controls and strategies, Bitterer said in a news release with the report. In addition, rampant BI consumerization, particularly from mobile devices, and the increasing number of BI end users connected to a growing amount of data will put emphasis on analytics expectations that may conflict with business outlines for cohesion.
