Why Self-Service Analytics Is Replacing Traditional Business Intelligence
Modern organizations typically use several IT tools to monitor their applications, networks and other IT components in real time. Unfortunately, this leads to independent data islands, which creates a one-dimensional view of IT. In order to make strategic decisions, organizations need an IT operational analytics tool to analyze data from multiple sources, spot trends and make better decisions.
While there are several analytics tools in the market, most tend to be either complicated or expensive to use. Self-service analytical tools, on the other hand, offer a rare combination of simplicity and affordability, making them popular among users. With the emergence of these comprehensive tools, every IT user can access data from various silos, get unified insight, collaborate with other teams and gain the visibility necessary to make faster and smarter decisions.
In a recent survey conducted by ManageEngine, over 160 IT professionals, including CIOs, managers and technicians from around the globe, highlighted their priorities and challenges when it comes to analyzing data.
Here are some of the findings, which suggest that self-service analytics is here to stay.
1. Analytics is not just for data experts anymore.
2. Empowered users ensure better IT governance.
3. Customization replaces standardization.
4. On-demand reporting is critical.
5. Visual analytics are more popular.
Organizations need to be proactive and agile to meet ever-changing business requirements. Investing in a self-service analytics tool is a step in the right direction. It will empower users, increase productivity and positively impact business.
