Performance Dashboards: Balancing Self-Service and Ad Hoc BI
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 via performance dashboards to optimize user adoption. This session will examine how to create reports and dashboards that make BI pervasive in an organization.
You will learn:
- The causes of poor BI adoption rates
- Two types of self-service BI
- How to deliver self-service BI to casual users
- How to deliver ad hoc BI to casual users
