LucidEra launches; Enterprise BI goes On-Demand

One of the most awaited startups to launch in 2007 has opened its door to new customers. LucidEra has launched its On-Demand BI platform and is all set to shake the enterprise reporting and data integration world. I have written about LucidEra few of times before, so won’t like to repeat the basics. Enterprise customers will be able to take the advantage of LucidEra’s built-from-scratch platform and pre-built solutions to deliver highly responsive end user reporting capabilities. As part of the initial launch LucidEra is introducing the Forecast-to-billing pre-built solution with more similar solutions coming in future targeting other business domains including Marketing. All this will come at a considerably low cost of implementation and maintenance that will for sure make existing BI product customers rethink their long-term data integration and reporting strategies. Apart from the product launch, I like Ken Rudin’ argument that while Oracle, Cognos, BusinessObjects go about integrating their recent acquisitions for the next 1-2 years, LucidEra will have its freshly baked product to deliver the next generation analytic and reporting capabilities that would lead to better insight into customer’s business.

    […] As Ray says, any switch to On-Demand from Client-Server definitely means cannibalization of their existing product set. I think Ken Rudin@LucidEra can explain this better than me ’cause he had first hand experience in that at Siebel while trying to build and sell Siebel On-Demand that pit him right against his own sales team. Same set of circumstances are going to hit Microsoft and especially Ray eventually forcing them to take some tough decisions. Question is, are they already working on avoiding Siebel On-Demand’s fate? I think so. Would the transition be that smooth? I don’t think so. Tags: […]
