Mature organizations that utilize security information and event management (SIEM) tools want their technology to be more than just a fulfillment device. They want it to provide actionable data. But in making that transformation, they're running into the same data warehousing and data management problems that business intelligence professionals face.

This combination creates a perfect storm for even the most advanced IT organization," wrote experts from Forrester Consulting, which recently released a study commissioned by data warehouse software provider Sensage that examined the practices of 60 SIEM-wielding enterprises.
