Why does self-service BI have to hurt so much? In theory, it should be the answer to all your problems. But so many enterprises end up disappointed. They’re overwhelmed with data, yet suffering from a shortage of useful information. They can’t gain insights. And it’s causing data chaos and anarchy.
