ABSTRACT:
For the longest time the greatest weakness of the Business Intelligence (BI) industry has been its failure to deliver an effective, affordable, and complete solution. The traditional approach requires putting together complex solutions with disparate tools from a number of different vendors, resulting in staggering services and software costs, long implementation times, and high failure rates. Some challenges companies face with traditional BI include:

  • Stand-alone, insufficiently-integrated BI tools
  • High cost and time requirements for building new BI solutions
  • High maintenance costs and management requirements for existing in-house BI infrastructure
  • Poor performance and limited flexibility after implementation

For these reasons, BI is often limited to the few large companies that can afford it - implementations are inflexible, limited in scope, and used by very few people. Fortunately, a revolution in BI tools and techniques now makes it possible to better meet customer needs with an automated BI solution. The automated solution is a paradigm-changing model that solves traditional problems and creates entirely new opportunities.

This White Paper explores how traditional approaches fall short, what the automated solution and its benefits look like, how the on-demand delivery model best represents the integrated stack necessary for automation, and how the automated, on-demand model brings the benefits of BI to a far broader audience than ever before.

Read this white paper to learn more about automated BI and the benefits it can have for your company.
