Cloud offerings will make up just 3% of business intelligence (BI) revenue by 2013, as user adoption will lag far behind the expectations of vendors, according to Gartner.
Andreas Bitterer, research vice president at Gartner and author of the report said that despite every major BI vendor offering a cloud platform by 2013, the market will not be exempt from cloud-related hype and users will not be as keen to embrace it.
"The immediate future of the BI landscape is one of a disconnect between marketing hype about pressing challenges on the one hand and reality on the other," he said. "The need for analytics does not match most organisations' skill requirements [and] vendor hype for cloud-based BI is not reflected in revenue and customer adoption."
