Oracle Fires First Shot In BI Shakeout
For BI integrators, it’s time to choose sides as the market heads for a shakeout. In addition to Oracle, potential partners include Microsoft, which is hosting its first BI conference in May; SAS, which launched its first partner program last year; open source startups like JasperSoft; larger independent companies like Cognos and Business Objects; and ERP giant SAP.
With so many BI companies in a maturing market, Wall Street is betting that a shakeout is coming. The VAR Guy agrees.
