Cloud hype fogs biz intel market

Cloud offerings will account for just 3% of business intelligence revenue by 2013, despite every major BI platform vendor presenting one, according to Gartner.
By 2014, fewer than 30% of BI initiatives will align analytics completely with enterprise business drivers, despite alignment being the foremost BI challenge.
In addition, Gartner analysts said that by 2013, BI initiatives will be based on an organizational model that strikes a balance between centralized and decentralized delivery.
“The immediate future of the BI landscape is one of a disconnect between marketing hype about pressing challenges on the one hand and reality on the other,” said research VP Andreas Bitterer.
