Business Intelligence Blogs

We’ve put together a business intelligence blog list, including the most respected and mentioned names in the industry. There are a lot of websites dedicated to BI, but many fall out of use or are just plain inaccurate, so we try to list the most often cited authorities here. Company blogs can be good sources of information as well, but one needs to be aware of “marketing speak” and understand some of the company bias. For that reason, we are limiting it to independent BI author blogs for the meantime. We are on the lookout for new blogs as well, so if you have a good established website, we’d love to hear from you!
