Self-Service BI: The Top 7 Selection Criteria
Self-service BI is becoming increasingly popular as business users demand more control over their analytical assets and IT continues to be strapped by budget and resource constraints. Many information workers now expect to be able to interact with information and create their own views to address pressing business issues. At the same time, BI teams would like to offload report and analytics creation duties to users and focus on more value-added activities. Fortunately, a new crop of self-service BI and analytics tools promises to empower users while liberating the BI team from ad hoc reporting tasks.

Attendees will learn about:
- The four components of a fully functioning self-service BI environment
- The differences between information consumers, producers, and BI/DW builders and their needs for self-service BI
