To stay competitive, organizations must constantly review the status of their projects, policies, and initiatives--and they have to make rapid decisions about which should continue, which should change, and which are worth launching. What's needed to make these choices is easy access to up-to-date business relevant information.
Unfortunately, many managers do not have access to the information they need to make these decisions. The required information is usually buried in a variety of data sources distributed throughout an organization. And while IT can provide access to information, this approach can be time consuming and resource intensive. What's more, traditional approaches to Business Intelligence (BI) with reports or existing query tools may not be suited to business users who want quick self-service answers to sets of questions they have.
Something different is required to meet the constant and rapidly changing demand for information to drive time-critical business decisions. Specifically, executives, managers, and business users need the ability to quickly discover, collect, analyze, and share relevant information and they need to be able to answer their own questions as they have them.
Read this quick report to learn more about a solution that addresses just these needs.
