New survey results show cloud-based BI satisfaction outpaces on-premise BI according to business intelligence pros
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software professionals overwhelmingly prefer a cloud-based BI solution over conventional, on-premise installed software for gaining access to the real-time business data they need to make better decisions.
These findings are from a new survey of BI professionals unveiled today by Birst, the leader in cloud BI, and Dimensional Research, which conducted the survey of more than 400 BI professionals. An accompanying infographic illustrates the results, underscoring strong advantages of cloud-based BI solutions compared to on-premise systems.
"These results confirm that cloud BI solutions are strongly preferred, offering faster, easier and more economical deployment and lower total cost of ownership, along with superior ease of use, which drives broader user adoption within the organization," said Diane Hagglund, senior research analyst for Dimensional Research and the study's author.
Cloud BI users reported the highest level of satisfaction, with 80 percent reporting "very satisfied" or "satisfied" with their solution, compared to just 51 percent satisfaction among on-premise BI users. More than half of BI users said they would choose a cloud BI solution over on-premise, while only 14 percent said they would prefer on-premise software.
Other key findings reveal that cloud BI solutions offer:
"The truth is that regardless of how beautiful your application is, how many features it offers, or how much it costs—if employees don't use it, all of that is irrelevant. This survey proves that more people prefer –and actually use—Cloud BI to gain the critical business intelligence they need to drive success," said Brad Peters, CEO and Co-founder of Birst.
The survey, conducted by Dimensional Research and commissioned by Birst, polled 403 individuals with involvement or experience in selecting, implementing or using BI software in North America, Asia-Pacific and EMEA.
