Visualize Data Quickly and Easily with Self-Service Analytics Infographic

  1. 1. CRACKING THE CODE BEHIND FAST BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE As information demand and data volume continue to grow, organizations are faced with the challenge of analyzing and disseminating that information in a timely manner. That’s why Best-in-Class companies already are adopting visual discovery over traditional Business Intelligence (BI), resulting in responsive, self-service analytics. 52% Need agility because of AS THE DECISION-MAKING information demand WINDOW SHRINKS, AGILITY IS THE KEY It comes down to getting the right information to the right people at the right time. We surveyed hundreds of organizations to identify Best-in-Class, industry average and laggards in information agility. This is based on their ability to find information needed in the time required, the average elapsed time to add a column to an existing report, and time to create a new dashboard. 38% Need agility because of data volume Trad ition It’s p r ima ri al BI and d e li v l y c o nt r o Of te e re d l l e d, n, by dr data only sta corpora iven a re a ti c v i te IT. cha n v ew ges ailable, a s of mu s or e n nd a t be h n mad a nce me y e by nt s IT.

Forty-four percent of the organizations that use just interactive BI tools are always able to provide business managers with the information they need, in the timeframe required. This holds true for just 17 percent of the organizations that rely solely on traditional BI. Companies that have complemented their traditional BI solutions with the interactive approach are almost 50 percent more likely to consistently meet the needs of business managers than those that rely solely on traditional BI solutions. A highly visual approach to BI can liberate business managers and transform their decision-making by ensuring they have access to the right information at the right time. it SAP at ormation on BI , vis For more inf datavisualization. / Data provided by ©2012 Aberdeen Group.
