Bureaucracy has become a four-letter word in the tech world. While bureaucratic systems may provide some benefits to an organization - it is fair, ensures compliance, defines roles, provides formality, etc. - bureaucracy in visual business intelligence solutions is inefficient and downright uninspiring. 

Bureaucratic visual BI solutions are a perfect storm of red tape and too many cooks in the kitchen. These legacy systems create an environment filled with complex ETL processes that often require data engineering and slow, bureaucratic decisions. Decision makers are unable to interact with the data themselves and are forced to delegate tasks to analysts and BI developers.

But we’re starting to move away from clunky, inaccessible bureaucratic BI solutions that are plagued by inefficiencies and roadblocks. The future of BI is accessible, which is why non-bureaucratic visual BI solutions are growing in importance and popularity. 


Ease of use promotes adoption, and a solution is only as useful as our ability to understand it and adopt it. Non-bureaucratic visual BI solutions democratize the analysis experience and even the playing field, providing an accessible, flexible platform that empowers users throughout the organization to interact with data directly, rather than enduring the back-and-forth dance with BI developers for every little tweak. 

Modern visual BI solutions are user-friendly and approachable, and give average business users the power to visualize and explore data at the speed of curiosity. Augmented BI dashboards provide a platform for data storytelling that is actionable, automated, contextual, attractive, and easy for the average user to interface with. 

Non-technical users can independently run scenarios without extensive data science skills, quickly create stunning, interactive no-code BI visualizations, and discover previously hidden insights from massive data sets without relying on data scientists or engineers.


The freedom to explore data at-will inspires innovation and new thinking. When the data you’ve been crunching transforms from mind-numbing spreadsheets into stunning, interactive BI data visualizations at the click of a button, you can truly be at-one with the data and dive deep into granular details that inspire questions you didn’t know you needed to ask. 

Modern visual BI solutions are deeply immersive, providing the average business user, not just data scientists, the means to effortlessly answer questions around the when and where in their data, without needing to index, downsample, or pre-aggregate. 

With the ability to see billions of points, lines, and polygons in granular detail, and the power of context, derived from cross-filtering and visualizations data from multiple sources multi-layered maps, any user can visually interrogate and gain incredible insight at the speed of thought, regardless of scale. 


Speed is everything these days. It doesn’t matter how great your data is if you can’t act on it fast enough. Non-bureaucratic visual BI solutions ingest raw data as-in, completing visual joins on the same dashboard, where that raw data can be explored and cut across, both on the space and time attributes within the datasets, in such a way that data engineers aren’t required to prepare and perfect the data before it’s ingested.

This is a cumbersome and time consuming process that can slow business down to a screeching halt. Legacy visual BI solutions experience latency not only in the products themselves, but also in the processes. Modern BI solutions bypass these inefficient processes, enabling users to explore bigger data faster, and decrease time to value, with faster products and faster processes. You’ll get answers faster and move on to follow-up questions faster.
