Traditional on-premise enterprise vendors struggle to solve the challenges of the Business Intelligence and Analytics in today's volatile business environment.
On-premise solutions are expensive, requiring costly consultants and heavy IT involvement with huge maintenance and support bills. The solutions are rigid resulting in weeks and months to make simple changes, with long IT queues, out of synch data, and constant rework. Users are constantly frustrated with disjointed, manual, and static tools that require downtime for updates and upgrades.
GoodData is the Enterprise Business Intelligence (BI) solution that the business world has been waiting for. Business users no longer want disconnected, static, consultant dependent software that IBM has cobbled together over the last 20 plus years. Rather, they want self-service applications across a ﬂexible and inﬁnitely scalable platform.
On-premise enterprises, like the IBM Cognos studios, struggle to accurately execute on their strategy. The ability to respond in the moment to constantly changing conditions is mandatory, yet continues to elude the majority of organisations.
GoodData simpliﬁes the BI model by giving business users a single interface that is consistent and easy to use, driving collaboration and adoption across the enterprise. Business communities that typically depended on the consultant army to build solutions are now enabled, engaged and more productive. GoodData’s collaborative tools will drive real change in the way that you do business. Collaborate and share projects, reports and results with colleagues and management in real-time by annotations, tag reports and inviting people into your projects to discuss and share progress.
Traditional software vendors like IBM handcuff organizations to the costly hardware, services, and licensing. With GoodData don’t worry about maintaining and upgrading servers; they will handle it for you. Built as a complete, integrated platform and offered as a service, GoodData can deliver your first project in weeks and extend it easily—with more data, more sources, more analytics, more dashboards, more users.
GoodData apps automatically connect with common data sources like Google Analytics, Salesforce and Zendesk, and since they are all built on the GoodData platform, you can extend them easily by adding data or customizing metrics that reflect your unique business requirements.
Unlike Cognos, every customer gets every feature when it's released, without painful forced migrations. Since GoodData is built as an integrated platform, it removes the burden of cobbling together separate data warehouses, analytics engines, modeling and visualization tools.
In Summary, Cognos and other traditional BI solutions are static and disjointed; they don’t evolve at the speed of business. GoodData makes BI an on-demand service which you can adopt and evolve quickly without the usual broken promises experienced with on-premise traditional BI vendors.
