The Definition of Self Service BI (in less than 100 Words)
Self service business intelligence (self service BI) is a technological approach focused on maximizing user capability to carry out analysis and obtain insights from a BI system while minimizing the need for IT experts.
Self service should allow users to easily gather data from software applications for import into an analytical database, then build metrics and/or visualizations, and finally consolidate them into dashboards and reports.
It should still allow business users to consistently make key decisions without long and costly IT implementation projects each time a new metric needs exploring. Today’s cloud and mobile platform are great means to deliver it.
