IO Informatics Quarterly Newsletter – Spring 2010

Market Trends

·         HP released a white paper highlighting Business Intelligence Trends and the New Generation of BI. In this whitepaper, HP listed ‘Semantic Technology’ among the top 10 BI trends for 2010. This business white paper focuses on the higher value/ big picture of the technology and does not contain details on semantic technology as a trend.  Semantic technologies are beginning to receive more of the much needed attention and accolades. The key to acceptance of any technology by business is always simplified marketing message and validation.
