Agile BI (business intelligence) is a flexible and scalable architecture that embraces rapid, iterative development and the commoditization of data storage. This agile architecture allows organizations to quickly adapt to changing business requirements while reducing total cost of ownership. As a result, companies are able to rapidly and affordably respond to changing market conditions. In short, agile business intelligence delivers on the IT mantra of “do more with less.”
Agile BI’s flexibility, scalability, and affordability are revolutionizing the way companies use BI in the same way cloud computing transformed the way we look at data storage. An agile architecture is foundational to delivering next-generation BI capabilities like self-service, mobile, and big data. As companies increasingly demand BI solutions that deliver competitive insights in an accessible manner to a broader audience, the adoption of agile BI is a necessity, not an option.
