Get the benefits of a full, end-to-end business intelligence solution with the ease and simplicity of cloud software.
Traditional cloud BI solutions provide fantastic user interfaces, but still require you to do the heavy lifting of handling data. In other words, they don't take care of the data, they only take care of how you interact with that data, leaving you with the burden of extracting data, organizing it in a data warehouse, and investing in its upkeep. What you need, instead, is an end-to-end service that handles the data for you. This is why organizations are choosing BI as a Service.
SME's BI as a Service is architected by a team of experts who can provide guidance and support on data analytics best practices. This can help you get the most out of your data and ensure that both the Business and IT are using the platform effectively.
BI as a Service eliminates the need for businesses to purchase and maintain expensive hardware and software infrastructure. This can result in significant cost savings for businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises that may not have the resources to invest in on-premises BI solutions or robust data teams.
Since BI as a Service is delivered through the cloud, businesses can access their data and analytics tools from anywhere with an internet connection. This makes it easier for remote teams to collaborate and share insights, and for businesses to make data-driven decisions in real-time.
Leverage the Latest in Machine Learning with Predictive Analytics
Predictive analytics is an increasingly important part of BI as a Service (BIaaS). By leveraging machine learning and statistical algorithms, predictive analytics enables businesses to identify patterns and trends in their data and make informed predictions about future outcomes. This can help businesses to anticipate customer behavior, forecast demand for products and services, optimize their operations, and much more. BI as a Service offers tools and technologies that enable businesses to perform predictive analytics on their data, as well as visualize and report on the results in meaningful ways. By incorporating predictive analytics into their BI as a Service strategy, businesses can gain a competitive advantage by making more accurate and data-driven decisions.
