The shift toward business user-driven data discovery has spotlighted the need to address the fundamental challenges of self service business intelligence (BI) data preparation. As an organization, are you ready to face that challenge?

The 2017 Gartner Critical Capabilities report states that self service data preparation delivers drag-and-drop, user-driven data combination of different sources, and the creation of analytic models such as user-defined measures, sets, groups and hierarchies.

Self service data preparation is a vital characteristic of a modern BI and analytics platform, as users must be able to retrieve and manage data from new data sources. These platforms allow business users to decrease the time and difficulty of preparing data for analysis in a governed and reusable manner.

Birst’s advanced capabilities include:

  • Visual data flow building and automation.
  • Semantic auto discovery.
  • Intelligent joins and profiling.
  • Data lineage and data blending on different data sources.
  • Multi-structured data and enrichment.
