In order for an organization to achieve a data-driven culture, employees throughout the organization need access to information that enables them to make data-driven decisions, in any given situation.
With a growing interest for data among business users, so-called self-service BI-technologies have evolved quickly. Tools such as Power BI, Qlik Sense and Tableau allow users without extensive IT-knowledge to collect data directly from various data sources such as their ERP-system, transform it to the desired format and display it in reports with powerful visualizations.
“As more and more business users in an organization start creating reports, all pulling data from the same sources, some issues with the self-service BI-approach will become apparent.”
