As Collaborate 2008 preparations are underway, the debate on what is the future of Pure-PLay BI vendors, is heating up. If you are attending Collaborate, please stop by to attend this debate in person.
Recent times have seen Siebel, Hyperion, Business Objects and Cognos lose their "independence" to the "giants" but what does it mean for other BI vendors, in ETL space, in BI presenatation tools, in advanced analytics space etc.
What does it mean for SAS, Microstrategy, Informatica, Information Builders etc.?
