Business people have wanted self-service BI for years, but it's rarely achieved and often misunderstood. Before you can select the right tool, it’s critical to examine the people, process, and politics involved.

In this session, we'll review what self-service means to various BI user communities and what each of these communities needs in terms of data, governance, integration, and analytical capabilities. We'll explore three BI environments—traditional BI portals with guided data discovery, analytical sandboxes, and data science hubs—and how they support casual information consumers, business "power" users, and data scientists. We will also review how data engineering, data integration, and data preparation fit together, and who is involved in these processes.
