Spending on Business Intelligence and Performance Management to Top $57.1B in 2008

AMR Research sees U.S. BI/PM market growing 4.2% in 2008

BOSTON, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Global spending on business intelligence and performance management applications will reach $57.1B in 2008, according to a report released today by AMR Research.

The study, which surveyed 400 IT and business leaders across Europe, China, and the United States, found that the spending emphasis in BI/PM software turned to tools and infrastructure in 2008 -- a 180-degree turn from the focus on information-driven and content-specific applications like dashboards and planning systems in 2007.

The study also notes a marked jump in external consulting spending (a combination of outsourced services and integration).

"External consulting spending was less than expected in 2007 as companies hired internally to meet anticipated needs," noted John Hagerty, vice president and research fellow at AMR Research. "But it has bounced back in a big way this year. We estimate this category will surpass $20.8B, or 37%, of total BI/PM spending in 2008."

Additional highlights of this report include: -- Global spending for 2008 is strong, but U.S. software purchases have slowed substantially. -- Long-term sustainable growth is likely for BI/PM spending for the next three to five years.

The market figures in this spending report are based entirely on enterprise user statements and budget plans for spending on BI and reporting tools; dashboards and scorecarding products; planning, budgeting, and forecasting applications; analytic infrastructure; and analytical applications.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
