Forrester collects business intelligence buzzwords

Forrester says “It’s time to reinvent your BI strategy.” No argument there. And they have an article, charts, and a white paper to back it up.

Still, the article is worth surveying to see if you have any “I hadn’t thought of that!” moments.

I particularly like this diagram, which has 27 layers, containing approximately 2 1/2 BI-related buzzphrases each.
