I’m told the future is Social BI (BI 3.0). What about Big Data and the Data Warehouse?

Source: Capgemini

Well, here I am once more trying to take my mind off the English football, penalties and the fact I now need a Big Data solution to determine when we last won a tournament; I knew I shouldn’t have eaten Italian food yesterday afternoon, it was never going to end well…….

BI 3.0 is Social BI

This incremental addition to BI 2.0 adds further functionality for social collaboration, data insight relevancy and end-user self-service capabilities whilst, thus far, seemingly omitting the increasingly important trait of a simplified visual interface and user experience (UX) driven through the global adoption of smart phones and tablets.

In recent months, Gartner has talked about ‘The Consumerization of BI’, Forrester Research in conjunction with Panorama software (who first cited the term BI 3.0) have  identified their interpretation of the 3 key themes of BI 3.0 and, a number of movements in the Agile and Mobile BI market space have taken place (examples being Oracle’s acquisition of Endeca,  Qlikview 11 (Social) launched, the emergence of the visualisation company DOMO and of course Panorama Necto being released).

BI 3.0 has 3 core themes

According to Forrester , the following components are crucial to next generation BI tools:

  1. Social Decision Making – if you try to achieve your goals alone, you will never be able to accomplish as much as with teamwork. BI 3.0 is about enabling users to work together (using social tools) to gain a much higher level of insight.
  2. Automated Relevant Insights – By automatically delivering relevant insights to the users, BI 3.0 eliminates the need of business users to understand the ‘how’ and focus on the ‘why.’
  3. Self-Service – BI 3.0 is designed by business users and for business users. This reduces IT involvement in the day-to-day use, enabling those resources to focus on deployment and administration rather than generating reports, while providing intuitive, easy to use analytical tools to ALL business and management users.

So, BI 3.0 means capabilities to support ‘social-media-like’ collaboration, greater information relevancy to the end-user and, the drive towards the ever elusive self-service Business Intelligence toolset the marketplace has been screaming for over the past decade. Mmmmmm, is that all thats needed really? Sceptical? So am I.
