Cloud BI (Business Intelligence) is an application that is hosted on a network (typically the Internet) and is used to provide organizations with BI-related information like dashboards, KPIs, and key business metrics. One of the main advantages of a cloud BI solution is that it requires no additional software or hardware upgrades to deploy – users simply have to go to a specified URL and enter login credentials to access BI information.
Cloud BI puts dashboards and KPIs on the web. This allows users to access this information anywhere, anytime (unlike traditional tools that may be behind a firewall or deployed on-premise).
Data visualizations like charts, gauges, and maps are designed to make it easier to consume BI information. With a cloud BI application, these data visualizations are presented on a dashboard that is easy to navigate when you need answers.
Today's data landscape is fragmented and getting the answers you need about your performance may mean checking with a dozen or more data sources. A cloud-based business intelligence solution helps to consolidate those data sources by automating the data retrieval process.
Many organizations are hesitant to chose a cloud BI solution because of concerns over data security. With a trusted cloud BI solution like Klipfolio Dashboard, your data is being protected with multiple layers of safeguards and by following industry best-practices.
