Munich, Germany, 2016/06/10 - Global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin, announced that it will be a ‘gold’ event sponsor at The Data Warehouse Institute’s (TDWI) 2016 Munich Conference - TDWI.org / YellowfinBI.com.
The largest gathering of BI experts and leaders in Europe, TDWI’s Munich Conference will be held 20 22 June 2016 at Germany’s MOC The Event Center, in Munich. The event will address the change sweeping the BI industry, aiming to educate attendees on technology trends such as self-service analytics, advanced analytics, automation and the Internet of Things.
As a TDWI Munich sponsor, Yellowfin will be demonstrating how widespread user adoption is critical to underpin successful BI deployments, exhibiting at booth number three.
Yellowfin Managing Director for EMEA, Peter Baxter, said that, even amidst the constant change currently defining the BI industry, one thing had always remained true: For organizations to generate return on investment from reporting and analytics initiatives, end-users must actively embrace the BI software implemented.
“Adoption rates in the BI industry are notoriously low,” said Baxter. “According to the latest version of the world’s largest annual study of BI end-users, BARC’s The BI Survey 15, the average proportion of employees using BI software is just 17 percent. The same study found that Yellowfin’s BI platform has achieved user adoption rates over twice the industry average [39 percent] amongst client organizations.
“Because we believe that data analysis is most valuable when shared, Yellowfin empowers business users and analysts to collaboratively work together to deliver better data-driven insights and facilitate a culture of pervasive fact-based decision-making.”
TDWI’s 2016 Munich Conference (tdwi.org) provides fast paced and challenging education on a wide range of BI topics, including Big Data, predictive analytics, data visualization and self-service analytics.
“With the constant change in the industry across Europe, TDWI Munich offers attendees the perfect opportunity to network with peers, industry experts and leading technology providers in order to understand and harness that change to ensure the success of their own BI projects.”
