BI managers show better readiness by giving self-service access to data for users. They don’t have to worry about impacting performances by allowing users to play with their own complex queries.Improved decision support and adoption
Open access results in better adoption since users can experience the powerful, positive impact directly on their decision making. Low levels of data duplication ensures that users get the most up-to-date and accurate information to support decisions, at any granularity.
