Editor's note: This article introduces the white paper "Practical Analytics for IBM i Users" available free at the MC White Paper Center.
Over the past decade, IBM has kept up a nearly constant barrage of announcements about business intelligence (BI) and analytics software and services. Ironically, considering the topic, the frequency and variety of these announcements has created a serious case of information overload for many IBM customers who don't have the time to read and interpret what all these offerings and strategies might mean to their business. Numerous customers, Business Partners, and members of the press have asked New Generation Software, Inc. (NGS) for our analysis because of our position as an IBM Premier Business Partner and independent developer of reporting and BI software for the IBM i (System i, iSeries, AS/400) operating system. We've done the research and summarized it in this White Paper to help you make informed decisions about the different BI technologies and architectures you may be considering.
