You Can Have It All - The Siemens PLM Journey to Self-Service BI
The desire for business users to consume and analyze data when they need it most can be challenging for any organization. This high demand for accessible data is driving IT and BI teams to take a closer look at how they deploy analytics to the business.
Two years ago, Bryan Hunter, Program Director of BI at Siemens PLM Software, embarked on a dangerous but important mission – build an enterprise reporting system that would change the reporting culture from death by Excel to one of analytics and visualization. By utilizing the strengths inherit in Informatica and Tableau, Siemens PLM Software found the sweet spot for organization-wide reporting. The result? Bryan's team enabled the business with access to data and reporting in a secure environment, while his team continues to maintain the infrastructure, governance, and training to support a scalable approach to data across the organization.
