Self-Service BI and Analytics Help Firms Succeed
Over the last decade, self-service business intelligence (BI) and analytics tools have evolved far beyond a buzzword. They have become a critical component that allows organizations of all shapes and sizes to operate faster and smarter. According to a new report from Logi Analytics, "2015 State of Self-Service BI Report," there's a recognition that self-service business intelligence and analytics tools are at the center of a successful organization. However, many organizations lag in adopting robust tools and making them widely available. They're also falling short in terms of building a data-driven culture and extracting the desired insights and value from growing volumes of data. "Creating a data-driven culture takes a lot more than just providing users with a self-service BI tool," said Alvin Wong, lead author and product marketing manager, Logi Analytics. "IT needs a deeper understanding of skill sets in order to be successful." The study, which included input from more than 800 business and technology professionals from organizations of various sizes and from a variety of industries, offers insights into how businesses are navigating the BI and analytics self-service space, and where they are succeeding and failing. Here's a look at some of the key findings.
