Why Business Analytics as a Service Won’t Spook IT

This is a very good and insightful article. Business Analytics as a Service (SaaS) is where the market is moving to. the main reason is that CIOs and business users do not want the details of advanced analytics, they just want a tool that works. Last week I was talking with a couple of IT executives from different large companies and they are looking for something "actionable". SaaS meets this requirement.

My only difference with the authors is that when people talk about "Excel hell" they do not know the capabilities that SQL 2005 Server Analysis Services and Excel 2007 can bring to an organization in terms of advanced analytics. I can see the combination of these two products becoming the first sucessful SaaS product for large enterprises as well as small businesses.
