Digital Hive vs. SAP Analytics Hub vs. Metric Insights vs. Enquero
Data analytics & business intelligence technology has been around for more than 30 years. From reporting technology such as Business Objects and Hyperion in the 80s, to visualisation technology such as Tableau and Qlik from the 90s all the way through to more modern ‘search & AI’ technologies such as ThoughtSpot today. In fact, there are around 250 technologies in this space. With the explosion of data and AI, this market is only growing – according to Gartner – by 9.3% YoY.
The problem is, there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ solution that exists today, and different departments inside a business have different requirements and use cases that can only be met with certain BI tools. Forrester reports that on average companies have 3.8 different BI tools, and this isn’t likely to change anytime soon. Accessing each of these tools can be difficult and time consuming when you factor in managing multiple credentials, complexity of locating the right data across systems, training and onboarding. And we haven’t even started talking about the needs of different users, both internal and external.
Now imagine, you log in just once to an analytics portal, and you are presented with all of the reports and dashboards you need to do your job, through a single pane of glass. Each persona can have a ‘Storyboard’ made up of all the data assets they regularly access, helping to improve BI adoption rates and data literacy. This also helps each user to make better data driven decisions, save time looking for hard to find reports and dashboards (with an analytics catalogue) and generally increases customer satisfaction. Customers and partners can be served up a fully branded experience, with just a few clicks and you haven’t had to build anything.
