Webinar Event: Cloud BI best practices

Are you considering a cloud-based Business Intelligence deployment? You’re not alone.

Three short years ago (2011), research from Saugatuck Technology found that just 13% of enterprises worldwide had BI deployments based in the cloud. By the end of 2014, Gartner expects almost 50% of organizations to deliver their mission-critical BI via the cloud.

To get your checklist for Cloud BI success – and discover why Nucleus Research found Cloud BI deployments can deliver 1.7 times the ROI of on-premise implementations – join Yellowfin for our Cloud BI Best Practices Webinar series.

And why do we have the authority to speak about Cloud BI best practices? Because Yellowfin has been the top ranked Dashboard and Ad-hoc Reporting vendor in Cloud BI in BARC’s The BI Survey, the largest annual study of BI users, for the last three years in a row.

“Cloud BI is clearly a space that Yellowfin dominates”
– Founder and CEO of BARC, Dr Carsten Bange

“Many observers see Cloud BI as the next wave in the industry”
– BARC’s The BI Survey 14

According to a recent MarketsandMarkets study – Cloud Analytics Market: Global Advancements, Delivery Models, Market Trends, Enterprise Roadmap, Market Forecasts and Analysis (2013 – 2018) – the global cloud analytics market will grow from $5.25 billion at the end of 2013 to $16.52 billion by 2018. That’s a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 25.8% over the forecast period.

Benefits and drivers of Cloud BI

Best practice Cloud BI deployments can deliver many benefits, including:

  • Enhanced scalability and flexibility: Easily meet growing demand and scale up and down as workload fluctuates – only ever use what you need
  • Faster, seamless, deployment: Get your BI environment up and running in minutes, not months
  • Easier access for anyone, anywhere, anytime: Easily deliver BI to any device or platform – “cloud analytics services are easily scalable, allowing enterprises to include anyone with an authentic email ID in their BI solution” (MarketsandMarkets)
  • Lower operating costs and total cost of ownership: Remove the day-to-day strain of managing and maintaining your BI environment – “cloud BI lowers both the system resources required for support and significantly reduces the full-time employee equivalent count” (Nucleus Research)
  • Optimized IT resources: Free internal IT resources to work on innovative value-add projects that assist business to drive demand
  • Reduced delays and bottlenecks: Give IT the time they need to respond to report development and enhancement requests
  • Easier connection to cloud-based data: “As more data sources move to the cloud, it makes more sense to also adopt cloud BI solutions because that’s where the data is” (Gartner Research Director, Joao Tapadinhas)

Gartner has listed system costs and complexity, as well as lack of responsiveness to user needs for faster and more functional data analysis, as key barriers to broad analytics adoption. Additionally, Gartner also found that more than 70% of enterprise IT budgets are spent on operations and maintenance.

Best practice Cloud BI has the power to change these facts, and significantly enhance the value of business analytics.
