BI Point Solutions


Business Intelligence [BI] Point solutions aim to solve one particular problem, without the need to address a far wider range of requirements. This avoids the need for more complex, multipurpose or multiservice projects and product solutions.

Point solutions are also often employed as an entry into a wider solution, with the added advantage of quickly demonstrating the pay back of a new capability.

There are a number of BI vendors who have created business intelligence point solutions.

One such solution is offerred by SaaS business intelligence ([BI] vendor LucidEra. Instead of BI tools being used to create tailored solutions for multiple problems, point solutions approach a narrowly focused area, along with the required ETL and data cleansing for importing data, but only one use case. For example:

 

Forecast-to-Billing Point Solultions

  • LucidEra
  • Adaptive Planning
  • SeaTab
  • Oco
