Collaborative BI Brings Consumer Culture to Business Decision-Making


Today I’m sharing an article I wrote with our readers.

They want their most frequently needed reports accessible via widgets. They want BI that takes unstructured data into account and makes it searchable.

Ultimately, users need the ability to subscribe to BI in a self-service manner.” And Collaborative BI makes this all possible.
