Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing have remained at the top of CIO spending intensions for several years and as a result the use of Business Intelligence is growing dramatically. This growth continues because companies recognize the value of BI for reducing costs, increasing revenues, and improving competitiveness. At the same time, the product landscape is changing rapidly with vendor consolidation, new vendors entering the market, and new technologies and products being introduced. Many of these new products offer lower deployment costs, improved ease of use, and support for new types of data like unstructured information and RFID data. Many are also aimed specifically at managing and processing the huge mountains of information being created both inside and outside of organizations.This international conference will provide you with the latest information on developments in the fields of Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing, and Enterprise Data Integration. It will not only update you on the latest developments, but also explain how these developments can be exploited for Business benefit.
