SOA and BI

October 22nd, 2009

While the SOA model is good for BI ETL, there more areas that it can pertain to including reporting, dashboards, performance management that have a much greater inpact.

Every application needs one of the above areas of BI interfaces in addition to its own ETL or data input interfaces. We have been focusing on implementing the whole BI interface as a reusable framework at

This creates a huge ROI when the same functionality is not build over and over again throughout an enterprises various applications. Not to mention that it would provide consistent information utilizing MDM, DW and ETL in the way described.

Last but not least by leveraging the whole BI stack in your SOBI architecture you actually leverage the investment you have already made in not just ETL but in your enterprise BI tools.
