Self-service BI drives decision-making. The use of real-time analytics with a mobile strategy helps to move collaborative innovation, with each member of a team holding all of the keys to change in his or her pocket. Business intelligence tools give companies the resources to look at aspects like governance, the use of centralized metadata, and scalability, to figure out how to utilize a data warehouse, implement effective business intelligence dashboards, and keep data flowing instead of trapped in silos.
Vendors provide business intelligence solutions in many different ways. While some are really predictive, others might not offer the types of analysis that truly empower customers.
