  3. 3. ERP CRM BI 3 Computing environment: Adopt a cloud-based BI solution1. Two inseparable but distinct factors live at the heart of the digital transformation of BI: the limitations of on-premise legacy technology, and automation. The manual effort required to make Excel into a BI tool are at once time-consuming, error-prone, and costly. In addition to cutting and pasting data from disparate systems into spreadsheets and grappling with formulas and formatting, Excel users are challenged with incorporating unstructured data into their analyses and are rarely able to deliver actionable reports to decision-makers at a moment’s notice. And that’s just for starters. Cloud computing model drives BI efficiency With automation, however, everything changes. Today’s cloud-based BI software eliminates the need for manual intervention and speeds up the delivery of mission-critical insights, enabling organizations to: • Connect all their data (even Excel spreadsheets), from on-premise data sources, big data, streaming data, and other cloud services, so it can be reported on in a few taps or mouse clicks. • Give decision-makers 24/7 web and mobile access to data and software tools, including user-friendly dashboards that provide a 360-degree view of their business and reports that show detailed performance metrics. • Free up their IT team and computing resources from BI reporting and software maintenance activities, so they can focus on higher-value initiatives. It’s no wonder that cloud computing is now the preferred computing model for most technology enablement, according to KPMG’s Journey to the Cloud: The Creative CIO Agenda report. Nor is it a surprise that Gartner predicts more than half of global enterprises already using cloud today will adopt an all-in cloud strategy by 2021.
