BI Mashup Maturity Model

James Kobielus wrote a blog article in anticipation of his upcoming report: "Mighty Mashups: Do-It-Yourself Business Intelligence for the New Economy".

In it he lays out the 4 levels of maturity of BI mashup within the enterprise. My paraphrased and simplified list:
  1. Parameterized reports
  2. Analytic dashboards
  3. Data mashup
  4. Collaboration with governance
It is very encouraging to see Forrester's research and predictions in line with our product strategy, so I'll forgive Jim for not giving InetSoft a shout-out as the one vendor who does enable all 4 of these levels of BI mashup.
