Fundamentals for a Service-based evaluation concept for Business Intelligence in the Cloud

  title={Fundamentals for a Service-based evaluation concept for Business Intelligence in the Cloud},
  author={Julian Ereth and Daniel Dahl},
Organizations can achieve many benefits by the integration of Cloud computing approaches in their Business Intelligence (BI) environments. However, the integrated and complex BI architectures make the integration of this new technology difficult. Since the Cloud is no universal remedy, it would be useful to have an evaluation model to decide when the use of Cloud BI is appropriate. This paper constitutes the first steps towards such a model by identifying and structuring consequences of Cloud…

Business Intelligence in the Cloud?

This contribution combines results from the outsourcing and the BI literature and derives a framework for delineating “Cloud BI” approaches, and considers six possible scenarios – some of which within immediate reach today.

A systems thinking approach to business intelligence solutions based on cloud computing

This document identifies the main challenges companies encounter while working on business intelligence applications in the cloud, such as security, availability, performance, integration, regulatory issues, and constraints on network bandwidth.

Mastering Business Intelligence Complexity - A Service-Based Approach as a Prerequisite for BI Governance

A service oriented concept for supporting BI governance is derived that complements the framework with aspects of solution composition and decomposition as well as for lifecycle management and thereby enables a holistic perspective in BI governance approaches.

Business intelligence in the cloud

The goal of this article is to show how BI will be offered as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to the business and the challenges that the business will face when making us a BI SaaS solution.

(MC2)2: A Generic Decision-Making Framework and its Application to Cloud Computing

A generic, multi-criteria-based decision framework and an application for Cloud computing, the Multi-Criteria Comparison Method for Cloud Computing ((MC2)2), which allows organizations to determine what infrastructure best suits their needs by evaluating and ranking infrastructure alternatives using multiple criteria.

Business Intelligence Outsourcing - A Framework

A framework is derived that supports the identification and evaluation of BI outsourcing opportunities and usage and benefits of the framework are demonstrated and discussed for five different scenarios and show that the related activities have to be handled with extraordinary care.

Architectural Requirements for Cloud Computing Systems: An Enterprise Cloud Approach

This paper shows that several architectural features will play a major role in the adoption of the Cloud Computing paradigm as a mainstream commodity in the enterprise world and provides key guidelines to software architects and Cloud Computing application developers for creating future architectures.

The Reservoir model and architecture for open federated cloud computing

The Reservoir project is motivated by the vision of implementing an architecture that would enable providers of cloud infrastructure to dynamically partner with each other to create a seemingly infinite pool of IT resources while fully preserving their individual autonomy in making technological and business management decisions.

Cloud Computing Value Chains: Understanding Businesses and Value Creation in the Cloud

This Chapter develops a reference model for value chains in the Cloud, theoretically based on porter's value chain theory, and the proposed Cloud value chain model is upgraded to fit the diversity of business service scenarios in the cloud computing markets.
