Self Service Analytics
Have you ever try to do something thinking you knew how, but ended up failing in the end? This is frequently what happens when self-service BI is implemented based purely on past SQL, Reporting and traditional BI experiences.
As a principal BI solutions architect, it is part of my job to listen to companies looking at self-service BI including educating them on what I have learned from listening to others, especially on what can go wrong!
Self-service analytics is a way to allow business users & data analysts to answer their own questions by giving them access to various data sets and intuitive tools that can blend, filter & visualize these data sets. If you are planning to roll out a self-service analytics project to a large user base then read the attached PDF document that covers areas where self-service BI within larger scales can and will fail when using traditional query-based solutions.
Have a comment or question? Post it below and Nick or myself will be happy to address it for you.
