From the Publisher

This issue focuses on two key areas of business intelligence (BI): reporting tools and real-time or business activity monitoring (BAM).

"Moving BI to the Enterprise," by Wayne Eckerson, explains that BI reporting tools have evolved. As a result of these improvements, organizations can extend BI throughout the organization - to the nontechnical business manager who can then effectively use BI technology. This is an excellent feature for those of you who are well along the adoption curve, as well as those just beginning to evaluate BI.

Colin White's feature, "Is BAM Alive and Well?" explains that the underlying concepts behind BAM are still very much alive and well; however, the term BAM may no longer be the correct term to use. White suggests that BPPM - or business process and performance management - may be more appropriate.
