The traditional way to manage Information Technologies (IT) in the companies is having a data center, and licensing monolithic applications based on the number of CPUs, allowed connections, etc. This also holds for Business Intelligence environments. Nevertheless, technologies have evolved and today other approaches are possible.

Specifically, the service paradigm allows to outsource hardware as well as software in a pay-as-you-go model.
In this work, we will introduce the concepts related to this paradigm and analyze how they affect Business Intelligence (BI). We will analyze the specificity of services and present specific techniques to engineering service systems (e.g., Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Architectures -SOA- and Business Process Modeling -BPM-). Then, we will also analyze to which extent it is possible to consider Business Intelligence just a service and use these same techniques on it. Finally, we store the other way round. Since service companies represent around 70% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the world, special attention must be paid to their characteristics and how to adapt BI techniques to enhance services.
