SaaS data access & integration best practices for Business Intelligence

1,187 views

Published on

Chances are, you’re using more SaaS applications and services than ever before. In fact, Gartner has identified Cloud as one of 2013’s four biggest technology trends.

According to a recent survey by Dimensional Research, 92% of IT executives agree that cloud solutions and services offer clear business benefits – saving time and money for capturing vital enterprise data, while enhancing flexibility.

But, what happens when you want to collate and analyze that data for competitive advantage?

The same research report found that 88% of IT executives are experiencing significant challenges with managing different SaaS business applications or services. And, 67% report issues integrating data between SaaS applications.

The point? An overwhelming majority of enterprise IT executives are concerned that their SaaS data is trapped in silos, unable to be accessed and integrated to provide business users with the unified and timely analytics they need to make crucial business decisions.

Sound familiar?

This presentation - SaaS data access & integration best practices for Business Intelligence – demonstrates how to easily access your SaaS data in the Cloud for advanced reporting, from any source, in real-time.

Provide your business users with the right insights, at the right time, via a self-service BI environment – minus the complex, lengthy and expensive data migration and integration processes.
