Overcoming BI Obstacles After a Global Pandemic


Based on Dresner Advisory Services' findings from their 2020 COVID-19 Impact Survey, 62% of businesses say self-service BI is essential in 2020. The results reflect respondents' firm belief that data-driven decision-making is a must-have for their businesses to survive and eventually grow again.

The effective use of self-service BI relieves business analyst teams, allowing them to take on more complex tasks (pricing, product mix, and supply chain modeling), which are all essential for surviving in a turbulent economy.

However, as analytics tools become increasingly easy to use, without the right organizational changes and the right resources, self-service initiatives often overwhelm users.

We discuss self-service BI adoption obstacles and offer several insights on ways to overcome common adoption challenges.
