“BI needs to be more competitive to survive. By implementing AI that can be used easily by business users, BI can analyze data in ways that were previously only reserved for data scientists with advanced degrees. Without this, BI is at its endgame,” said Cupid Chan, CTO at Index Analytics, Board of Directors, ODPi Technical Steering Committee (TSC), Chairperson of ODPi BI & AI Project. “This white paper shows key insights into how leaders in the field are implementing AI technologies into BI and how they view the future.”

By making AI intuitive and easy to implement, BI can empower business users to analyze data in ways that were previously only reserved for data scientists with advanced degrees. AI can aid in data exploration, automatically find patterns in data, and predict future outcomes to help businesses drive results in a fraction of the time/cost.

ODPi’s newest white paper, entitled “BI Endgame – When AI Meets BI,” presents best practices for combining BI and AI. ODPi members Index Analytics and SAS plus technical contributors including Qlik, Microsoft, ThoughtSpot, MicroStrategy, and Tableau present a wide range of real world strategies on how they are implementing AI, the challenges they face and where they are looking to enhance their investments.

Their unique perspectives include:

  • Developing AI capabilities that can be easily adopted by analysts in a low-code/no-code environment
  • Reducing or eliminating the gaps, both technical and organizational, between AI and BI teams within companies 
  • Integration with machine learning algorithms and platforms, including ODBC, gRPC, and REST, and democratizing access to insights driven by AI/ML platforms
  • Managing incoming data – AI and BI are only as good as the data that goes in, must be supported by a well-governed data management program
  • Utilizing analytics engine to uncover insights hidden in data, AI-driven explanations reveal value of data points within data visualization
  • Building trust is the key to adoption of AI-infused analytics
