Hello everyone and welcome to our webinar. Today we’re going to discuss how you can add enhance your current Microsoft BI platfrom with Social and Contextual data discovery and drive business user adoption.It’s going to be a very unique webinar because at the end of this session, you’ll be able to login live into our demo environment and find an answer to our question. So pay attention during the demo so you can win the challenge!We’ll also be showcasing a case study but again – in a very unique style. It’s an infographic that shows a powerful story how a leading aircraft development company has utilized a BI 3.0 solution and within 6 month it’s being used by 2,700 people throughout the company. So stay tuned and please feel free to ask questions as we go using the gotowebinar tool – we’re saving some time at the end for the Q&A session.
We’ll start our discussion by reviewing a couple of trends identified by leading analysts.And the first one is the one you’re probably very familiar with – Business Users Drive self-service applications. No news today, business users want real time access to data, they don’t have time to wait for that report from an analyst or IT, that’ll be ready tomorrow, they need to make a decision now. But they’re not willing to use the complex analytical tools, they want something simple, user friendly, that doesn’t require any analytical background.And you know what - almost every BI vendor claims they have a simple BI solution, but I promise you today – you’ll see something totally different. We did not delete any functionality to make it simple for business users, instead – we developed an intelligent engine that does all the work for the business users behind the scenes. So with a simple click of the button the BI system can run complex algorithms in the background, without the user knowing about it.
The next trend that is especially now highlighted by Gartner and Forrester analysts – Collaboration. This is how we’re making our daily decisions today – on tripadvisor, facebook, linkedin, so enterprise applications are starting to embed those popular social features to allow collaborative work.
It’s no longer a secret that by crowdsourcing, you can get better decisions and faster.
But the way people collaborate in BI today is through email. Everyonerecognizes it’s very inefficient, but it’s available and we’re comfortable with it.Most organizations also don’t have a good idea of what best practice is around business intelligence because we don’t document it and don’t go back and look at it again.We believe that Collaborative BI couldallow people to make better decisions much more quickly by bringing in all the relevant resources and also to document that.
Business intelligence is the hub for ideas sharing and decision making, so at Panorama we believe that BI should be first application to enable collaboration, allowing conversation to drive consensus and improve understanding across the enterprise.
There’s one more trend that analysts are starting to talk about – the contextual data discovery. Again, in the consumer world – we all love amazon, that recommends the most relevant books for you to read, or linkedin that suggests the most relevant people for you to connect to. Even google and bing are now trying to personalize the information for you. And according to Gartner – by 2014 , 30% of analytical applications will use proactive, predictive and forecasting capabilities.
We live in the era of data explosion that’s caused by Cloud Computing, Rise of Mobility, Globalization, Social Media, Machine Data, Web Logs, Sensor Networks, and so on and so forth. 8 years from now – there will be 35 zettabytes of data! So imagine how much time it will require to try and analyze it using the tools you have today.
And while the data is growing, the decision window is narrowing down. So lots of data needs to be digested quickly, or it risks being irrelevant. You need to make a decision faster than your competitors do.So what everyone is trying to figure out is – how do I shorten the time from Data to Action
Well, when you have a world of Data, you need a better Compass!If we bring contextual discovery into BI, the system will understand the user and it will know what’s the right data to suggest to the user. Instead of users searching for insights and reports, the reports will find the user. Instead of teaching the user what are the right questions to ask, the system will create patterns, based on the user profile and the data that he reviewed, and suggest the relevant information to the user. And it might sound like magic, but many consumer applications are already doing it, so it’s about time the enterprise world picks up!
So let me introduce to you now – Panorama Necto, a Business Intelligence BI 3.0 solution that’s based on 3 pillars – Social, Contextual and of course Advanced Analytics for those power users, all in a simple, self-service environment for the business users.
