Marketing research firm IDC predicts that businesses will spend $7.3 billion net new IT dollars on cloud services by 2013. For services like CRM (Salesforce.com) and document collaboration (Google Docs), the roadmap for moving to the cloud has already been established. But for business intelligence, it's not as clear. The sensitivity and volume of data and the potential complexity of BI systems have made executing a cloud-based BI strategy more of a dream than a reality.
If you've been thinking about how to move your BI to the cloud, I hope you'll join arcplan on Thursday for our webinar, A Roadmap for BI Cloud Computing. It's a roadmap for implementing BI in the cloud that mitigates concerns about data security and confidentiality. The strategy we'll present allows BI consumers to manage large volumes of data securely at a low cost and with shortened implementation times.
Whether you're a smaller company looking for a cost-effective, easy entry-point into BI or you're a large organization looking to capitalize on what's sure to be a trend with staying power, this webinar is worth your time. Here are the details:
