How to Make BI Pervasive

Webinar Abstract
Usage rates for BI tools have nudged up from 18 percent three years ago to 24 percent today, according to TDWI Research. This abysmally low percentage accounts for most of an organization’s power users and a handful of very determined casual users. What can you do to make BI more pervasive? Most BI managers latch upon the notion of self-service BI as the panacea to increase adoption. But this strategy usually backfires unless it’s balanced with a careful understanding of the information requirements of various types of users. Organizations need to balance self-service with tailored delivery of information, and they need to understand what self-service means to different groups of users. This Webinar will address the major pitfalls organizations face when deploying BI tools and recommend steps to make BI accessible to the remaining 80 percent of employees who have yet to become active users.

You will learn:

  • Why BI teams are guilty of fostering low BI adoption rates
  • Why you need to balance self-service and tailored delivery to achieve success
  • How to give users “ad hoc” capabilities without undermining information consistency
