Self-service Data Analytics: Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, Qlik View and IBM Watson

22 Oct 2015 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Self-service Data Analytics
    • Are you evaluating Self-service BI vendors for your organisation?
    • The IT staff is too busy or takes too long to develop reports that you need?  
    • Do you want to build your own reports without help from your IT team? 


Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, Qlik View/Qlik Sense or IBM Watson Analytics?

Which one is the right choice for you?  

In this breakfast session we will show you a comparison between functionalities of the above tools with a full end-to-end experience. We will also look at some real-life scenarios to give you better understanding on the capabilities of each option.

We ran our inaugural Self Service BI Overview session in August. It was a big success and the huge interest in Self-Service Data Analytics Services is a reflection of it being one of the top 5 Key Trends in Business Intelligence.

Comments from our satisfied workshop attendees:

  • “I wasn’t sure if I was walking into a sales pitch, but once I arrived I was impressed with the professionalism of the morning.” Ben James from ASIC
  • “I am now much better informed about features and licensing about the products highlighted today.”
  • “I can recommend this session as it was a good overview of the main BI products in the market.  For companies beginning to look into BI solutions it was a very helpful session.”
  • “The presenters did answer questions on the comparison of the tools very helpfully.”
  • “A specific thing that I liked were the setup demonstrations from every program.”
  •  “Watson was interesting, it assisted me in thinking about appropriate tools for our environment, also the breakfast was good (bonus takeaway).”
  • “I liked the lack of agenda and non-salesy approach. The informative, friendly, knowledgeable and approachable presenters and the balance they struck between informality, impartiality and authority. I also appreciated the venue, the view and the hospitality!”  
  • “Certainly, you packed a huge amount of information into a fairly short period without feeling overwhelming.”
  • “Got a glimpse of Qlik and Power BI which I have not seen before and it was good to see how they compared to tableau as I have been using tableau mostly for visualisation.”
  • “I liked all the presentations and tools demo, side by side comparison of leading BI tools, the networking opportunity and the venue.”
  • “My result of attending the briefing is that I had more questions around self-service BI and that a lot of other companies are experiencing the same issues.”

Also have a look at the question of the day from our last workshop. Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, Qlik View and IBM Watson – Which one is the easiest program to make presentations for my marketing and sales team?”
