What's holding back business intelligence solution adoption?

A recent survey by InfoWorld was conducted to examine the factors
driving -- and limiting -- the adoption of business Intelligence
software. It found that the main factors holding back the growth of BI
is the high cost associated with the purchase and implementation of
tools and the lack of an intuitive interface for target users.

"Some 49 percent of respondents said budget constraints limit their
ability to roll out BI; another 40 percent worry about the time
required to implement a BI project." In addition "more than a
third said the user Interface of their current BI solution is not
appropriate for all potential users."

Business users are swamped with data that exists in functional silos.
They need simple to use tools that allow them to collaborate with one
another to make better business decisions. Like Microsoft's Word
many BI tools tend to be over engineered, full of features that clients
must pay for but that they are very unlikely to use.

"The problem with current vendors is the high cost and technical user
focus of their solutions", says i4 CEO Glen Rabie. "They have
missed the point. Business intelligence is not about technology per se
- it should be about providing business people with tools that remove
the barriers to their data, yet existing products do not support this
sort of collaboration.
In identifying this gap in the market, i4 have developed their web
based Information Collaboration solution, Yellowfin. "Having decades
of experience in this space we witnesses first hand customer
frustrations with the tools available, and we decided to act.
Yellowfin meets three simple criteria. It is:

Easy to Use
Simple to Deploy

It is a breakthrough product in the Business Intelligence market. Sam
Sofianos of Corrs Chambers Westgarth agrees, "The deployment of
Yellowfin has been an unprecedented success both in terms of rapid
implementation and user adoption. This tool is perfectly aligned with
business user needs and our information delivery strategy."
