Choosing the Best Tool for the Job

If your organization is like most, you have multiple self-service and enterprise BI tools at your disposal. And that’s a good thing because there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all tool.

By design or by nature, certain tools are better at performing certain tasks than others. How do you know which tool is the best suited for the task at hand?

In this recorded webinar, our experts take you through the high-level benefits and drawbacks of these disparate platforms. We’ll share a comparison matrix we developed using our real-life experience working with both types of solutions. With it, you’ll  be able to better determine which approach to take.
