Managed self service BI can benefit your organization in multiple ways: First of all it will allow more users to do BI due to ease of use of the tools. Secondly it will allow your organization build and manage BI solutions more efficiently. Why? By allowing the business users with the domain expertise to serve themselves (by granting the access to IT sanctioned data sources) they will be able to more easily build more relevant analysis and find the answer they need without having to ask IT for help. This in return will help free up resources from IT who no longer has to constantly respond to ad hoc request for updated reports and queries allowing them to focus on their core workload: Making sure the systems are maintained, backed up and secure
