Business intelligence information is only valuable when the right users can discover, analyze, use and share it with others—and all in a timely manner. Technologies produce data at overwhelming rates, often faster than business users can analyze it, and
the bottleneck is frequently the time that it takes to generate useful and impactful reports. At US-based supply chain management giant Jabil, as in many enterprises, data analysis has long been a time-consuming and intensive collaboration between the business
groups and IT, creating customized reports whose information, by the time it’s used, is already growing stale. With its new solution built on Microsoft SQL Server 2014 and SQL Server 2014 Power View, Jabil users can create their own reports in minutes from
business critical data sources using Microsoft Excel, with IT providing training and guidance—freeing up time for projects.
