Why is the release of Storyboard significant?

BI has a problem – it doesn’t deliver a Return on Investment (ROI). Not by itself anyway.

BI end-users generate business value and BI ROI when they utilize BI content to make more efficient and effective decisions.

The consumerization of BI only got it half right – it made BI more accessible to a wider range of data consumers. But, while on the rise, user adoption rates remain low, commonly reported to be languishing between eight and 24 percent.

The results get worse. Gartner has indicated that around 80 percent of BI projects fail, suggesting that only one in five BI programs are capable of positively impacting decision-making.

Therefore, enabling people to integrate fact-based information into their natural decision-making processes is critical to help generate an analytics culture and realize the desired benefits of BI.

The Yellowfin Storyboard is a revolutionary new approach to BI and business communications that does just that.

By blending BI with a comprehensive presentation platform, Storyboard enables users to integrate fully interactive data-rich presentations into their decision-making processes to drive real fact-based action and BI ROI.

“As companies, we spend a lot of time and money working out how to capture information. I think allowing people to connect to and share that knowledge is what good information management is all about”

– Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie
