Back to the technology... I am working hard on evaluating some BI vendors: Microsoft Proclarity, Panorama, and Microstrategy. So far I am much happier dealing with the Microsoft analysis services that Panorama and Proclarity are based on. Not to mention that the pricing I am getting is much cheaper from those 2 vendors. I will continue to build my POCs and show them internally.
I am also working on some management tool consolidation from Symantec I3, CA Spectrum, and other tools. A lot of the work is in architecture still, but we are also doing some implementation.
We are evaluating proactivenet in the next week or two as well. More soon.
