When end users request reports, make sure your BI reporting tools can give you more control over report distribution and scheduling.
One of the main objectives of an analytics solution is to include report tools that deliver insights in a format that can be easily accessed, reviewed, and acted upon.
Sisense democratizes end-user reports so that every end-user receives access to the data and valuable insights that govern their business. Use the reporting software with special features to customize BI report content, control distribution lists of the report, apply filters to view only relevant information in certain groups, and play with frequency and format. The final output is a report that is destined to the right audience and targeted with the correct information that makes decision making what it should be in a data-driven company.
Your self-service, end-to-end BI reporting tool
Say goodbye to cumbersome, IT-centric reporting: Sisense lets you easily transform big data from disparate sources into visual BI reports in a matter of minutes.
Business analysts must individually set and manage reports for each end-user (email content, subscription, and scheduling frequency) for all individual dashboards. Business users depend on business analysts to make all the changes necessary to report settings, including unsubscribing from a report.
In most companies, all users of a dashboard receive the report in a mass distribution when the owner dispatches it to the company. This process is time-consuming and tedious, it allows data to be distributed to unnecessary employees, possibly harming the security policy of the company and releasing customer data to unauthorized employees.
Sisense has a solution. Sisense End-User Report Management, the BI reporting tools inside the Sisense data and analytics platform, allows business analysts to take control of the analytics reports that are created and distributed. Business users are now able to receive the relevant information when (scheduling frequency) and how(i.e. email, pdf), and where (laptop, mobile, tablet) that they prefer.
Business users have more autonomy over each dashboard/report they have access to. (i.e. unsubscribing, determining frequency, filtered views). This frees up the business analyst to focus on more value-driven activities, while still catering to the subscribers of the reporting software and data-driven analytics insights.
The value that Sisense provides in its BI reporting tools for business analysts and business users is strengthened by delivering even more control and accelerated workflows and ultimately faster, more efficient time-to-insight. And we are continuously investing in enterprise readiness that allows our largest customers to scale reports distribution to thousands of users without burdening business analysts.
