Business Intelligence software looks to future - Yahoo! News

"Traditionally, large companies have used software from leading vendors such as Business Objects (Nasdaq:BOBJ - news), Cognos Inc. (Toronto:CSN.TO - news), Hyperion Solutions Corp. (Nasdaq:HYSL - news) to mine mountains of information stored in databases and use the data to detect marketing trends and patterns.

But analysts say applications that actually answer questions rather than just present mounds of data is the key driver of a market set to grow 10 percent in 2006 or about twice the rate of the business software industry in general."
