BI vendor taps fantasy baseball to kick-start pervasive BI market

Thursday, April 30, 2009

With its latest marketing campaign, Information Builders is hoping that some of the enormous and growing popularity of fantasy baseball will rub off on the business intelligence (BI) industry.

Information Builders has released a set of interactive reports, available free to fantasy baseball players or anyone interested in the sport, that lets users sort, filter, chart and otherwise manipulate last year's Major League Baseball statistics to compare players and teams in preparation for opening day next week.
