Abstract
Business Intelligence (BI) systems address the demands oflarge scale enterprises for operational analytics, management informationand decision support tasks. Building such applications presents manychallenges. They must support complex and changing data models, havefast turnarounds, present an up-to-date and accurate view of informationand provide extensibility mechanisms for new analyses.Widely adopted distributed object systems, such as J2EE can be heavyweightand inflexible when applied to the described scenario. This paperpresents our experience when developing a data analysis system thatapplies a combination of lightweight distributed component technologiesavailable for Java.These technologies are combined in an event-based architecture that anticipatesconstant changes to analysis algorithms in short time framesand provides the ability to maintain correlated analyses in a consistentstate. The resulting architecture is extensible, easy to deploy, highly configurableand has a very flexible data model. We compare this approachwith existing distributed object systems and evaluate its suitability toprovide business intelligence.
