Mobile BI and Personalized Dashboards: Important Components of Modern BI!
If your team is using business intelligence (and it should be), you may be working with a more restrictive business solution that is not designed for a business user. If that is the case, you are missing an opportunity to cascade analytics throughout the organization and to optimize your resources and improve productivity. Self-Serve Business Intelligence solutions are designed with guidance and recommendations to guide a business user with average skills through the process of preparing and analyzing data and to encourage collaboration and data sharing across the enterprise.
Start-Up, Small Biz? You Too Can Enjoy Business Intelligence and Analytics!
Every business has its unique needs, competitive strategy and challenges. But, not every business understands these factors or has the ability to make fact-based decisions. Even the smallest businesses deal with a lot of data every day and, while they may feel that they don’t need analytics, this oversight can mean that they do not consider all the data they have when they make a decision or that they tend to make decisions based on opinion or ‘gut feel’.
Machine Learning and Smart Data Visualization – The Perfect Combination!
Now that you (and your team) have access to analytics tools, you want to make the best use of these tools. You want to share analysis with others, use that analysis to explain concepts and conclusions in a presentation, and clearly see the root cause of a problem, the opportunity you can leverage and the trends and patterns you need to understand in order to do your job.
Self-Serve Data Prep: You Can Have Data Agility AND Data Governance!
When you are considering an augmented analytics solution, you will want to look at the capabilities for self-serve data preparation (SSDP). This functionality allows business users to gather and prepare data for analytics without the help of data scientists, IT or data analysts.
Flexible, Dynamic Business Intelligence Reporting and Analysis!
Business intelligence is not a dry, robotic reporting mechanism. Rather, it is (or should be) a source that is based on enterprise wide data, integrated to help users see results, find the source of a problem and delve into opportunities that offer business potential.
Augmented Analytics Tools Designed to Support the Future!
As one of its Strategic Assumptions, Gartner predicted that ‘By 2020, more than 40% of data science tasks will be automated, resulting in increased productivity and broader usage by citizen data scientists.’ Gartner also predicts that the number of Citizen Data Scientists will grow five times faster than the number of expert data scientists through 2020, and that by 2019 the amount of advanced analytics produced by citizen data scientists will surpass that produced by data scientists.
Data Analytics Can Transform Users to Citizen Data Scientists!
The term ‘data analytics can seem daunting to the average business user. Isn’t analytics something that is the sole domain of data scientists? No, actually it is not!
Data Visualization Tools Provide Crucial Decision Support!
If they are to help your users achieve their goals and understand what is happening within your organization, data visualization tools must be easy to use, with sophisticated functionality and an intuitive user interface. If you want business users to leverage data visualization software, you have to give them something they can easily use and adopt with smart visualization that will recommend the best way to process and visualize data, depending on what the user wants to interpret and the type of data they are working with and sharing.
