Gartner Research: "If you ask organizations what they want to use BI for, better decision-making is the top answer. The pressure from cost cutting and compliance has put a greater focus on BI, but businesses are still using it very tactically. Successful organizations realize that having a real vision for BI is the key to business performance and they use information as a resource implemented in their business culture."

-- Frank Buytendijk, research vice-president, Gartner Research
