BI Solutions for SME's


Business intelligence is seen largely as the domain of large organizations, yet any size business can benefit greatly from BI tools. To date, the cost of BI technology has been too high for small businesses, but with SaaS models now offering BI on Demand, BI is available to any size business.

BI applications for SME's may be either:

  • In House BI SME solutions - where the database and client application are implemented at the client premise.
  • SaaS BI on-Demand solutions - software as a solution that is hosted in a secure data center, with the customer using a standard web browser to access the BI tools via the Internet. BI SaaS solutions are becoming an extremely popular, lower cost option. These are also known as on-Demand BI solutions. For more about onDemand software as a service [SaaS] solutions.
  • Point Solutions - developed to solve one particular problem; often employed as an entry into a wider solution. More on BI Point Solutions

Ventana Research advises "smaller organizations to examine flexible, easy to install and cost effective BI offerings that both inform and empower employees to be effective in their roles and responsibilities".
