Two of the largest challenges faced by IT organisations today are integrating business solutions and delivering relevant data to the rest of the business.

In this, most rely on enterprise software, such as CRM, ERP, financial suites and the like. But traditional enterprise software solutions can sometimes add unnecessary cost and complexity with analysis tools that are separate from the overall process.
