Introduces Business Intelligence 2.0, Details Deployment of Real-Time BI into Business Processes

Windsor, U.K. April 16, 2007 SeeWhy Software today announced that In Search of Insight—CEO Charles Nicholls’ roadmap of real-time business intelligence requirements and the next generation of BI technologies needed to tackle those requirements—has quickly surpassed 6,000 downloads in only six months. A free copy of the eBook is available at

An introduction to BI 2.0 themes addressed in the eBook, along with additional business intelligence content, are available in a 10 minute podcast at the Business Intelligence Network Web site -

“The rapidly evolving business intelligence needs of the real-time enterprise require BI technologies focused on automating processes and, importantly, building intelligence directly into processes themselves,” said Nicholls. “BI 2.0 describes a new frontier where businesses will thrive in their ability to immediately analyse and react to business data. The future of BI is about building intelligence into processes rather than analysing processes or events after the fact.”

Traditional business intelligence technology is not able to serve the increasingly complex information requirements of today’s real-time enterprise; current solutions lack the ability to offer timely, intelligent and refined analysis. BI 2.0 solutions allow businesses to interpret and define business metrics and decisions with a high degree of accuracy while allowing business professionals beyond the BI expert the ability to comprehend and leverage this data.

In Search of Insight presents an overview of traditional business intelligence solutions and the challenges of using these solutions to meet business needs. Nicholls interprets industry trends affecting the evolution of BI tools, such as data security, longevity, volume and real-time capabilities, and then shows how these trends drive BI 2.0 solutions to improve the way enterprises access and analyse data.

One highlight of the evolving business intelligence field is event-stream processing, in which real-time data is extracted “in-flight” from middleware and used, along with historical data, to make real-time business decisions. Nicholls concludes that intelligence has to be built into automated processes for organisations to win competitive battles. BI 2.0 solutions embed intelligence within processes to ensure truly insightful and actionable business results.
