There’s a war on between IT organizations and business users for control over business intelligence. In many ways, this war reflects the divide between headquarters and individual business units, with IT departments typically on the side of central administration.

Yet, a new survey of worldwide business users from Dresner Advisory Services suggests that business users are actually winning the war. Most new BI projects appear to be not only small in scope, but also favor new emerging BI vendors that have bet on either open source applications or software-as-a-service.

In both cases, the cost of acquiring these tools is well within the reach of most departments. This doesn’t mean that centralized BI applications are going to fade away. But it does mean that at some point in the near future an accommodation is going to have be made between centralized and departmental BI application deployments that allows both types of BI application environments to leverage their respective strengths.
