I often wonder how some of my more BI-savvy clients track all the reports they have. It seems to me that BI report proliferation is directly proportional to the explosion of data from both internal and external sources. I hope I’m wrong about that, for their sake.

Several BI products feature report libraries that help companies track and store their mushrooming report volumes, availing reports for re-use by multiple user groups. Microsoft SharePoint comes to mind here, and I particularly like Lyzasoft for this kind of functionality. Lyzasoft’s robust search and social media features let business users collaborate in building reports, actually tagging as they go so that that metadata evolves apace. Users can then recommend and further annotate these reports in an active and friendly way.
