The decline of BI-nosaurs and the rise of self-service analytics

Have you ever heard of BI-nosaurs?

At this year's Gartner BI Summit, Gartner's Research Director Joao Tapadinhas presented a session titled “How to Architect a Modern BI and Analytics Platform.”

In this presentation, Joao refers to folks working on traditional BI platforms and not embracing new trends like self-service analytics as BI-nosaurs. If they do not evaluate the new way of doing BI, Joao suggests, they could become extinct.

Now, before you pass judgment on his comment, go to Gartner's on-demand portal and watch Joao’s presentation. He has some very good points. And from our point of view, we are seeing a lot of customers join the self-service movement.

So we, along with our friends at Informatica, developed some tips to help you develop a self-service BI platform. Check them out below.

We'll continue our discussion in our upcoming webinars titled "Architecting Your Modern Analytics Ecosystem – Informatica + Tableau." Sign up to attend on May 19 or June 14.

Going to Informatica World later this month? Our CEO Christian Chabot will speak at the event. And Bryan Hunter from Siemens PLM will share his journey to self-service BI. We hope to see you there.
