It is common place for most organisations to be struggling with their Data and overall business intelligence (BI) strategy. This often stems from historic technology environments driving the decision making process when it comes to choosing the right BI solution.

Over the last few years a paradigm shift has occurred in terms of the buying decisions that are being made for all BI and analytics platforms. At long last the end users are getting involved in the decision making process and their voices are being heard loud and clear.

So what are Some of the key driving factors to implement a Business Intelligence solution;

  • To get insight into customer’s behaviour
  • To make company data actionable information
  • To Improve business efficiency across departments
  • The need for integrated data from multiple business applications and data sources
  • Ability to access key information quickly, easily and anywhere on multiple devices
  • Users requiring more in-depth knowledge of business information
  • Rapid company growth or a recent or pending merger/acquisition
