Business intelligence is critical for making solid business decisions. And fast, accurate decision making is driven by access to current data. Allowing access is easy when the data sets are small and you're dealing with single data systems. But things start to get complicated as the amount of data grows and you begin adding data warehouses, business intelligence systems, and data governance and quality teams to manage the flow of information.
One way to give internal consumers access to this growing web of data is through self-service business intelligence tools. The problem is, users quickly learn to love the visualization capabilities these tools give them. And that puts more demand on IT to integrate more data into a consumable form for the users. So self-service business intelligence for business users without self-service data integration leads to a bottleneck in the system and a lot of contention between the two groups.
Toad Business Intelligence Suite from Dell Software tackles business intelligence problems head on with components that give business users self-service access to the data they need, and IT the tools to safely and accurately migrate data between systems, while still meeting quality and governance requirements.
