Traditional Business Intelligence tools are unable to meet the fast paced data requirements and customer expectations.
These BI tools suffered from lengthy development time,absence of data transformation environment and non-intuitive visualizations . Users have to go to multiple reports to answer a single question.Data was still trapped in layers and data discovery was not possible.
Data discovery tools like QlikView significantly reduced the development time. Presence of transformation functionality let users and developers easily manipulate the data without going through lengthy ETL cycles. Associative technology helped users in discovering the data without having in depth knowledge of database and schema’s. In memory solution helped in faster analysis.
