Gartner's 2010 'Hot-List' topics

Gathering and using business information are critical to driving growth. Business Intelligence (BI), Analytics and Performance Management (PM) initiatives coupled with an innovative and adaptable information infrastructure will play a significant role in helping your organization identify and understand the potential impact of these new business patterns, providing the insight business leaders will find invaluable. New ways of using traditional technologies, coupled with the increasing sophistication of analytic applications and the emergence of mash-ups, offer huge potential for IT to help adapt and grow the business for this new world.

There is evidence that firms are increasing investment. With nearly half of organizations anticipating that BI budgets will increase in the next 12 months, it is vital that investments are deployed that build - and develop - the use of these investments in the business. In spite of significant opportunities in supporting the business, obstacles still abound: unengaged business sponsors; lack of business user involvement; fragmented information silos and governance; BI tool proliferation; poor data integrity coupled with poor quality and inconsistency, skills gap can lead to low adoption rates amongst business users and unrealized business value.
