Decision Intelligence is the Next Big Analytics Innovation

The next major innovation in analytics is Artificial Intelligence (AI). Applying AI across Data Prep, Business Analytics, and Data Science is what separates decision intelligence from traditional business intelligence tools such as Microsoft Power BI, Qlik, and Tableau. AI lowers the skills barrier by automating the highly technical work needed to prepare and analyze data and create and share reports and dashboards.

The Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform delivers data-driven insights for anyone to make faster, optimized decisions. The Pyramid Platform provides instant access to any data, enables automated governed self-service for any person, and serves any analytics need, from the simple to the sophisticated. By uniquely combining Data Prep, Business Analytics, and Data Science with AI guidance in a single environment, the Pyramid Platform reduces cost and complexity while accelerating growth and innovation. This enables a strategic, organization-wide approach to Business Intelligence and Analytics.

Complete, Unified Decision Intelligence Platform

For the new study, Dresner asked respondents to quantify seven specific advantages and disadvantages associated with the use of single-vendor integrated analytical platforms. Dresner found that, “Overall flexibility and state-of-the-art functionality are now the least advantageous attributes of integrated platforms (compared to most advantageous for best-of-breed approaches). In return, cost reduction, security, platform management, and user and data governance become far greater advantages of single-vendor integrated platforms. While acknowledging trade-offs, we also note that the sum of mean benefits is clearly higher for integrated platforms versus best-of-breed in 2022.”

Only the Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform unifies Data Preparation, Business Analytics, and Data Science on a single, integrated platform. This eliminates the need to use multiple disparate tools and the associated license cost and management complexity. Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), rapid rollout and Return on Investment (ROI), direct query access to all available data, and industry-leading user adoption means faster time to value. The Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform can be deployed on-premises, into a private or public cloud, embedded into other apps or delivered through Managed Services Providers (MSP).
