Welcome to the Monash BI Blog

This blog has been set up as another way in which the academics at the Monash Centre for Decision Support and Enterprise Systems Research can stay in touch with the Business Intelligence community. Members of the Centre interested in decision support have a long history in the area, going back to the 1970s. Our research is independent of vendors and consulting companies, and focussed on all aspects of using IT to support management decision making.

Whilst there are a number of BI blogs out there at the moment, most of them are written from a vendor or consultant perspective, and usually have a commercial slant to them. This blog will be written independent of a commercial imperative, and hopefully will be the base for a community of BI practitioners and researchers to share ideas and comments.
