About this paper
Cloud computing is a major trend that offers advantages in flexibility, dynamic scalability and agility. Even so, there’s been a lot of marketing hype. The reality is that, until recently, cloud has been slow to take off for business intelligence and analytics. Organizations are concerned about security, performance, functionality and other critical issues.

This report examines organizations’ experiences with, and plans for, cloud BI and analytics, new cloud models, and what should be considered when moving to the cloud.
