Collaboration features are coming into the core
enterprise BI user experience to help teams tap the
intelligence within their organizations, partner
ecosystems, and customer communities.
The emerging generation of self-service BI platforms will help users tap each others’ smarts, build sophisticated analytics, mine relevant information on social networks, and deploy reports, dashboards, and other guided views to social communities.
Your companies’ most critical business intelligence may be in people’s heads. How do you unlock that precious social resource & deliver it on-demand wherever it’s needed?
do more with less
flex & adjust
...and access to each other’s guidance and advice
Single view of everything
...and a complete panorama of each other’s deep knowledge
Single version of truth
...and a sure sense of who are the principal experts on which topics
Self-service information exploration
...and the ability to explore big data and big problems collectively & interactively in real time
From a decision-support perspective, the typical user is:
Demanding, dynamic, omnivorous
Their BI needs are ever-changing:
New sources, new data, new models, new reports, new dashboards, new queries
....plus a never-ending stream of requests for changes to all the above
They want the power to get all the intelligence they need....
Including access to the people with the most expertise in their problem area.
And they want it all NOW!!!!!!!!!
Access to necessary content is difficult
Diverse sources and formats; scattered, incompatible, redundant data sets; heterogeneous information silos; fixed data models, structures, and cubes
Unified rollup is easier said than done
Semantic mismatch of subject-specific data models; dynamic mergers, consolidations, and reorganizations of data sets
IT backlogs frustrate users
EDW often a bottleneck, as are short-staffed BI development teams; takes time/resources to add new sources, extend schemas, build new OLAP cubes, modify reports
And none of this delivers social intelligence!
Hey IT! Give us the power to get our jobs done--and stay out of our way!
Takes IT out of the loop, cuts costs, reduces development backlogs, speeds delivery of intelligence and analytics to decision makers
BI SaaS, in-memory BI, personal OLAP, and BI guided search among the principal self-service approaches.
