James Richardson, Research Director at Gartner, said the perception is that Cloud-based Business Intelligence platforms can provide “a quicker, potentially lower-cost and easier-to-deploy alternative.” Although he did also highlight that many organisations are yet to reach a full understanding of cloud services and their capabilities.
