This talk will first examine the current marketplace for Business Intelligence, and how it has gotten there.  We’ll look at how EMC is leveraging some of the newer tools and products to lower the costs and effort for implementing BI, in the context of a real-world EMC BI project.  We’ll also share best practices & lessons we’ve learned in these projects.  Finally, we’ll look at the next generation of BI tools and products, and talk about how they will impact the market and what problems they’re attempting to solve.
