Self-Service Business Intelligence: Empowering Users to Generate Insights
In today’s climate, the need for business intelligence (BI) is a given. Yet, in too many organizations, decisions are still not based on BI because of the ability to keep up with the demand for information and analytics. One approach to better leveraging BI is creating a self-service BI (SS BI) environment, in which information workers can create and access specific sets of BI reports, queries, and analytics themselves.
This in-depth report examines the four main objectives of any successful SS BI environment which enable BI users to become more self-reliant and less dependent on the IT department:
- Easy access to source data for reporting and analysis
- Easy-to-use BI tools and improve support for data analysis
- Fast-to-deploy and easy-to-manage data warehouse options such as appliances and cloud computing
- And simpler and customizable end-user interfaces.
Read on for practical recommendations on how you can achieve these objectives and build a successful SS BI environment in your enterprise.
