How to Choose the Right Software as a Service (SaaS) BI Tool

Before you think about your SaaS options, ask yourself why you should choose an "on-demand" BI tool over the more conventional "on-premises" BI tool.

An Easy-to-use BI Solution

A SaaS BI tool can be a great solution, especially if you are a BI beginner:

  • No installation - on-demand BI applications require no setup, no overhead, and no wait
  • Web interface and mobile BI - SaaS tools are remotely accessible, meaning they're never further away than the nearest mobile phone
  • No IT knowledge necessary - Everything is off-site, so there's no need to know about OLAP, ETL, data warehouses, etc.

  • Standard publishing formats such as PDF, DOC, XLS, etc.
  • Embed your visualizations in your blog or intranet
  • Share you analysis with colleagues through email
