Self-Service Business Intelligence (SSBI) enables users to interpret and create reports and analyses themselves without having sufficient basic knowledge of statistical analyses, Business Intelligence (BI) or data mining
.Unlike classic Business Intelligence software
, wherethe analyses and statistics were carried out by the IT department, SSBI programs can be operated intuitively and give specialist departments the opportunity to create their own statistics and derive the necessary decisions for their work from them.
Self-Service Business Intelligence requires that the departments involved have access to the company's data warehouse and can prepare and analyze the data. This technology relieves the IT departments of the task of creating analyses and reports and makes them available to the specialist departments much more quickly.
