Oracle warns of security risks from BI systems

Oracle has warned that the growing use of business intelligence systems has the potential to compromise the security of data held within the enterprise, as some BI systems are being used outside firms' secure network environments.

David Pryor, vice-president of Oracle's BI and datawarehouse operation in Europe, said the best way around this was to develop BI applications that interrogated the data held in a secure datawarehouse rather than extracting the data to put through the application.

Oracle says it is currently looking to develop systems that adopt this approach, as part of its ongoing efforts to integrate its Oracle, Siebel and Peoplesoft platforms.

Pryor also held out the prospect of Oracle developing a future platform incorporating a secure datawarehouse with a full array of BI tools capable of generating meaningful outputs in near real-time.
