  • End users are the final consumers of “Business Intelligence” they are the ones that look for insights into the information that is provided and make strategic, tactical or operational decisions.Today end users use familiar tools like Microsoft Office Excel and Access to create their business models or reports and either make decisions themselves or share it out with others. This allows them to get solutions up and running quickly without any dependence on IT. The challenge with these traditional tools is that there is no accountability for where the data in their systems comes from and where the information goes. Not only is it a data quality issue, but one of compliance as well and is the reason why IT Pros within these organizations look to try and manage this information sprawl.IT on the other hand is used to managing their data and infrastructure in a secure, scalable and reliable way, but just cant keep up with the demands of the end users as every new request needs additional customization or the creation of new BI assets.Our vision for end user empowerment is about bringing the best of both worlds to the end user. End users should continue to rapidly create their business models and repots using the tools that they are familiar with while at the same time being able to work on information that is managed by IT, is secure and of high quality. All without having to directly call on IT to make it all happen. This is what we view as “Self Service BI”
  • If SharePoint lists had a REST/Atom API, when Gemini is installed in the SharePoint farm we could add an Open Data Feed menu option that returned an .atomsvc file that points to the data service (the Open Data Feed menu option would be added by Gemini not part of WSS, because showing this option to users only makes sense if their organization has deployed Gemini in their SharePoint farm).
  • For REST/Atom data services, the IT administrator can create data feed files that contain the URL of the data service. For the MDM example above to work, MDM (or preferably BDC) would have to implement a REST/Atom API.
  • Data feed files stored in SharePoint document libraries can be returned as search results

    • 2. What's in a name…
      Gemini - Gemini (pronounced /ˈgɛmɪnaɪ/, Latin: twins, symbol ♊) is one of the constellations of the zodiac known as "the twins"

    • 6. The Challenge
      Data warehouses do not cover all data or all users
      New formal BI solutions need time and resources
      Diverse users have diverse data needs
      Bottleneck
      Ad-hoc requests stress I.T. capacity
      Power users bypass I.T. with unsanctioned sources
      Chaos
    • 7. Reign in the "Spreadmarts"
      • Excel is the IW tool of choice
      • 8. Excel is a problem - “unmanageable”
      • 9. Excel is sticky – users “can’t quit it”
      • 10. Why not make Excel part of the solution?
      • 11. Include Excel as part of a complete BI solution
      • 12. Structured and manageable

      I.T. and end-user roles
      Empowered to create without IT dependence
      Managingcompliance and
      resources without user obstruction
    • 19. A Technology driven approach

      Remove friction and barriers to entry
      Transparent to the user
      Familiar tools and skills – the cornerstone of Gemini
      Nothing new to learn
      Full potential of existing technology investments
      Continue to work with familiar partners
      Everyone Plays their position
      Business Users don’t need to be technologists
      IT doesn’t need to understand business trivia
