Although service-oriented architecture (SOA) is becoming increasingly popular in enterprise application rchitectures, little is known about how SOA could support and influence the use and implementation of business intelligence (BI).

This paper draws recommendations for BI vendors and for organizations that use or intend to use SOA to support BI.
