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.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
