How innovative are you when it comes to BI?

Posted by Edwin Willems on 09-Jan-2017 08:30:00

Trends trends trends … so what?

Top 10 tech trends for 2017. Top 5 BI trends for 2017. Etc etc. It’s that time of the year when all those industry watchers, vendors, bloggers and the like come out with their lists and predictions for the new year. It’s not that much different from those ‘5 ways to get rich’ and ’10 ways to lose weight without diet or exercise’ articles.

Gartner Magic Quadrant for BI 2016 – the BIG shakeout

Some of you might remember my blog about Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms 2015. In the introduction, I wrote “…it's still interesting to see how each of the key players have (slightly) moved”. Well, I can’t say that this year. The 4 BIG traditional BI vendors have dropped out of the leaders quadrant, including IBM, Oracle, SAP and SAS. Bye bye. 3 vendors dominate the leaders quadrant now: Qlik, Tableau and Microsoft.

But there’s one BIG thing the report doesn’t talk about too much, and maybe even the most important one…

Posted by Gatien Hocepied on 02-Dec-2015 20:14:00

Billing in Belgian hospitals is a complex process: data coming from various systems, manual encoding, invoice lines discarded due to billing rules…  Including practitioners in the invoicing process can help avoiding a lot of frustration for all people involved in this process, including also the CFO, the head of administration or the back office.

Posted by Edwin Willems on 26-Feb-2015 21:48:00
