Business Intelligence (BI) has become a mandatory part of every enterprise’s decision-making fabric. Unfortunately in many cases, with this rise in popularity, came a significant and disturbing complexity. Many BI environments began to have a myriad of moving parts: data warehouses and data marts deployed on multiple platforms and technologies – each requiring significant effort to ensure performance and support for the various needs and skill sets of the business resources using the environment. These convoluted systems became hard to manage or enhance with new requirements. To remain viable and sustainable, they must be simplified.
Fortunately today, we have the ability to build simpler BI technical environments that still support the necessary business requirements but without the ensuing management complexity. This paper covers what is needed to simplify BI environments and the technologies that support this simplification.
