  • Setting up traditional BI solutions involves buying and integrating multiple products from multiple vendors – and even the offerings from individual vendors often are made up of several disparate products that were brought in through acquisitions and not built to work together. All these products must be integrated together in a seamless and precise way for the end users to see the results they expect – one mistake somewhere in the chain and the end user will see incorrect results. The level of coordination and precision required for BI is high – so getting these tools to work perfectly together is very time consuming and resource-intensive and that same pain is experienced for every change made to the system as the business’ needs evolve over time.
  • In Aberdeen AUG 2010 Report “Fast, Affordable, Agile – The Case for SaaS BI”, Aberdeen found that SaaS BI adoption doubled from 2008 to 2009 going from 7% in 2008 to 15% in 2009. Shown here are some of the primary drivers for the growing adoption of SaaS BI.

    1. 1. Why Choose SaaS BI?<br />Confidential<br />
    2. 2. What is SaaS?<br />2<br />1/14/2011<br />Confidential<br />A way of delivering solutions over the Internet—as a service. <br />Instead of installing and maintaining software at your own organization, you simply access the solution online.<br />SaaS<br /><ul><li>Provider manages application access, including security, availability, and performance.
    3. 3. All solution updates happen automatically.
    4. 4. Sometimes called on-demand or Web-based software.</li></li></ul><li>How do you know if it’s really SaaS?<br />A lot of companies claim that they have a SaaS solution. How do you know if they really do or not?<br />Multitenant Architecture<br />All users and solutions share a single, common infrastructure that is centrally maintained. Because of this, vendors can both innovate more quickly and lower the overall cost of your solution – a savings that is passed on to you.<br />Easy Customization<br />Users can easily customize solutions to fit their business needs without affecting the common infrastructure. Customizations are unique to each company or user and are preserved with each upgrade. This means that upgrades can occur more often, with less risk and lower adoption cost.<br />Better Access – from anywhere with an internet connection<br />Access to data from any networked device. It’s also easy to manage privileges, monitor data use, and ensure that everyone can have access to the most updated information.<br />3<br />1/13/2011<br />Confidential<br />
