Optimal BI: Balancing Ad Hoc with Tailored Delivery to Achieve Widespread Adoption of BI

Webinar Abstract
Most BI professionals want to give users the ability to create their own reports as a way to liberate end-users from IT intermediaries and reporting backlogs. But most users aren’t capable of accessing databases and formatting result sets to create reports. The few users who thrive in this environment—typically the power users-- create so many reports that performance, storage, and accessibility become serious issues. Today, savvy companies are balancing ad hoc BI with tailored delivery of reports to optimize user adoption. This session will examine how to create reports that make BI pervasive in an organization.

You will learn:

  • The technical differences between ad hoc and tailored delivery
  • The target audiences for ad hoc and tailored delivery
  • How to manage tailored delivery environments so they remain responsive to changing user needs
