Business Intelligence experiences

During my 17-plus years of being a business owner or employee, I've had the opportunity to implement, feed, test or used a Business Intelligence (BI) product including Cognos, Microsoft's PerformancePoint Server Planning(discontinued) and now Business Objects. I like the look and feel of this product but wonder what will change in 2010 since SAP took over. Nowadays, database vendors provide Business Intelligence solutions in their product line and you can check vendors like SAS (Voted by Fortune as the top company to work for in 2010), Oracle, Microsoft, IBM and now SAP.

You can add value to your customers if you can implement a BI solution right on top of their ERP/SCM/CRM system.
