CBR has co-produced a special report in the Daily Telegraph appearing tomorrow (Thursday, 13 December). So if you’re in the UK, pick up a copy at all good newsagents.

The report is on business intelligence, and you probably don’t need me to tell you what a hot topic that is right now. Little wonder that over $15bn worth of acquisitions have been consummated in just four deals this year: Oracle buying Hyperion, SAP buying Business Objects, Cognos buying Applix and then IBM buying Cognos.

The report looks at the latest trends in BI: the move towards performance management; the rise of enterprise search from the likes of Autonomy, FAST and Google Enterprise; the sophisticated use of BI in the retail sector and even how to justify investment in business intelligence technologies.

There’s a roundup of the latest news, and some thought-provoking factoids – for example that the term business intelligence was first used in the context in which we now use it, in an article in 1958 written by H.P.Luhn in the IBM Journal.

CBR co-produced it with those nice people at Special Report Publishing. It features comment from many of the experts in the BI field, and even takes a look at how companies can avoid a major data loss such as that experienced by Nationwide with the loss of a laptop early this year, or HMRC and its two missing computer discs.

Anyway, check it out tomorrow, and be sure to let me know what you think.
