There is a clear trend happening: The death of federated BI. This model of Business Intelligence is failing because allowing individual departments to have their own IT systems and services is creating silos. Organizations cannot meet their goals and objectives through silos.
Centralized BI is saying “Hasta la vista baby!” to federated BI because when done correctly, it can simplify administrative tasks, improve data security, make data management and sharing a lot easier, and save the company a lot of money. There is a growing sense of urgency to abandon federated BI and deploy centralized BI.
