Six Considerations for Choosing the Right Analytics Solution

Six Considerations for Choosing the Right Analytics Solution

Depending on your needs, specific functionalities such as end-user data mash-ups, advanced data visualizations, and an open client interface that enables users to plug Excel worksheets into your new analytic offering can increase the value of your application. To get started, determine your user experience (UX) needs and how you can cater to all of your users, whether they are C-level executives or data scientists.

Look for a solution that can be deployed in a public cloud, inside your own private cloud or on the premises of each of your customers. Additionally, embedding analytic software should easily integrate with your customers' data sources and other applications to avoid creating silos and enable an easy exchange of information between systems.

Single-tenant solutions require you to set up a separate business intelligence stack for each additional customer. If you have a lot of customers, this is not sustainable. You need a solution with built-in multi-tenancy that does not require a lot of overhead for on-boarding each new customer.;
