BI for the Little Guy

Business Intelligence, says Don Jones, author of more than 45 technology books and an in-demand speaker at industry events worldwide, on Redmondmag.com, "is about empowering non-technical users to dig through the piles of data that the company has amassed, letting them make smarter decisions about how the company should proceed in the future. Often, BI starts off in a specific department, such as purchasing or manufacturing, and then slowly spreads throughout the organization."

He concludes his brief fly-by of the subject with a section on "BI for the Little Guy." There's not a lot of recommendations there (Microsoft and Cognos Express), but it's worth a quick read.
