Rethinking Enterprise BI to Fit a Self-Service World cover

TDWI Checklist Report | Rethinking Enterprise BI to Fit a Self-Service World

March 15, 2017

Business intelligence (BI) is becoming increasingly democratized, and realizing value from BI tools is no longer limited to an exclusive group with technical expertise. Today’s self-service BI and visual analytics tools are easier to use and offer graphical interfaces that feature data visualization as the primary means of interacting with data, providing a range of users with more power and control to work with data as they see fit.

How does the democratization of self-service BI and analytics fit with enterprise BI? At its best, enterprise BI gives users improved data quality and consistency. However, the chief downsides of enterprise BI include restricted data access, a steep learning curve, and delays in waiting for IT to make changes or add new data.

This Checklist Report focuses on how organizations can revise and revitalize enterprise BI in the age of self-service technology. The self-service genie is not going back in the bottle—self-service BI and analytics are here to stay. Thus, it is critical for business and IT leaders to open up enterprise BI and embrace self-service BI and analytics.
