Yes, BI has promise. Its value has been proven repeatedly. In a previous response, I gave some market projections and stated that BI will continue to be a major area of IT-related investment.
As for the current players, many can claim BI and, mostly, they'd be right. BI is so expansive. It includes backend servers and disk systems, database management systems, data movement tools, data access tools, data cleansing tools, third party data. No one player dominates, never has and never will. Count on searchCRM and other independent voices to help you organize and navigate it.
