Global Business Intelligence (BI) software vendor, Yellowfin, has released a new white paper on Collaborative BI. The newly updated paper outlines the crucial components that make up an effective and complete Collaborative BI platform, and explains its ability to facilitate pervasive sharing, discussion and better, faster fact-based decision-making.

The white paper – Collaborative Business Intelligence – is available for free download from the Yellowfin website:

The merging of BI with Web 2.0 and social networking technologies has given rise to the new concept of Collaborative BI – a type of collaborative decision-making (CDM) platform. This platform, like social Web 2.0 technologies, is designed around the premise that anyone should be able to share content and contribute to discussion; anywhere and anytime.

“Collaborative BI provides an answer to the persistent problem that, despite increasing amounts of money being spent on BI, many organizations are failing to utilize reporting and analytics effectively and continue to make poor business decisions,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie. “The potential is exciting and nothing short of transformational.”

“Yellowfin is currently the only BI solution on the market that offers a complete and fully integrated CDM module straight ‘out-of-the-box’,” said Rabie. “Yellowfin’s Collaborative BI components facilitate better, faster, less labor-intensive organization-wide CDM.”

This announcement comes amidst the release of a new industry report on Collaborative BI – Collaborative Business Intelligence: Optimizing the Process of Making Decisions. The study, conducted by renowned analyst and Director of Research at TechTarget – Wayne Eckerson, surveys the current state and potential of Collaborative BI.
