Top 7 Benefits of Achieving Self-Service Business Intelligence (BI)

Posted By

Self-service Business Intelligence (BI)  is not just a buzz-word.  It is an approach to analytics that enables business users to analyze organizational information (i.e. create reports, make dash boards, perform ad-hoc analysis, configure alerts).

IT resources are not required on a continual basis to support end users, but rather only to set up the back-end (i.e. the data warehouse/data marts and related cubes underpinning the business intelligence system).  Further, if an existing back-end solution is available, IT may not be required at all!

The top 7 Benefits of Achieving Self-Service BI include:

  • Enabling business users to create personalized reports and conduct analysis without IT involvement
  • Freeing up IT resources to focus on other tasks
  • Improving organizational decision making
  • Increasing response time to changes in the business environment
  • Improving allocation of resources
  • Reducing organizational risk
  • Improving organizational results
