Alongside Microsoft and IDC, Intellinet's Business Intelligence Director Provides an Expert Viewpoint

May 20, 2010

In association with Microsoft's 2010 Business Intelligence (BI) Launch, Intellinet Corporation's BI Director, Eric Melcher, was selected to join with Microsoft and IDC in the discussion, Choosing your BI Solution: An Expert Viewpoint.

A company's selection criteria for BI can determine the success - or failure - of the completed solution. Alongside IDC Senior Analyst, Dan Vesset, Melcher provides answers to crucial questions such as: What are the most important features you should look for? How can you ensure a successful roll-out?

"Long-term adoption is the most telling factor for evaluating the success of a BI solution, and adoption is largely determined during the first steps in planning and development," stated Melcher. "Gartner recently predicted that over thirty-five percent of the top 5,000 companies globally will make significant errors in business decision-making over the span of two years. This fact alone makes BI necessary. However, a poorly designed solution that does not meet business users' actual needs can significantly reduce the initial value of BI causing users to revert back to their dated, inefficient processes."

Melcher was selected by Microsoft because of his field experience in analyzing, designing and leading the strategic direction for BI solutions across various-sized companies and industries. He is recognized by Microsoft as a worldwide expert in Microsoft's BI platform.
