1. Summary

In recent years, self-service business intelligence (SSBI) has become an increasingly important tool for organizations of all sizes. Unlike enterprise BI (EBI), SSBI allows users to access data and analytics tools without the help of a dedicated IT staff. This innovation makes it possible for all employees to make real-time decisions based on up-to-date information.

SSBI has proven to be particularly useful in the age of big data. With so much data available, it is no longer feasible for businesses to rely on IT staff to compile and analyze all of this data. By giving employees access to BI tools, businesses can harness the power of big data to improve decision-making and drive growth.

The future of SSBI is bright. Advances in data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) are making it easier than ever for employees to get the information they need to make informed decisions. In addition, the increasing popularity of SSBI is forcing traditional EBI vendors to offer more user-friendly tools.

Organizations that want to stay competitive in the years ahead should consider implementing SSBI. With the right tools and training, your employees can use SSBI to make quick, informed decisions that will help your business grow.

GigaOm’s latest research report on self-service BI provides an in-depth look at the current and future state of this powerful technology. The report explores how BI is currently being used by businesses, the value it is providing, and the business problems it is helping to solve.

The report also looks at the future of SSBI, including the latest trends and developments that are shaping this rapidly evolving field. Organizations that want to stay ahead of the curve and take advantage of the latest BI innovations need to read this report.

In the corresponding GigaOm report “Key Criteria for Evaluating Business Intelligence Solutions,” we describe in more detail the key features and metrics that are used to evaluate vendors in this market.
