What Is a Business Intelligence Portal?

When an organization has multiple business intelligence (BI) applications, it can create a siloed and fragmented view of the reporting assets that are available for business users. As a result, it is often frustrating and time consuming for business users to find and access the information they need to do their jobs — this is where a BI Portal comes in.

In the analytics landscape of business intelligence, advanced analytics, data science, and artificial intelligence, a BI portal serves as a single interface for centralized access to information . It lets businesses combine all reporting, metrics, and visualizations into a single interface that users can access with the assurance that it contains reliable content.

Access Information

As a single interface for all analytics assets, a BI Portal gives users the ability to quickly find and access reports through personalized dashboards and search functionality. This simplifies and streamlines the daily work of analysts and businesspeople, thereby increasing productivity and efficiency.

Scale Analytics Value

A BI Portal allows users to view and interact with all of the reports, dashboards, spreadsheets, PDFs, and other resources they need to confidently make business decisions. In bringing more people closer to the information they regularly use, the BI portal drives and scales analytics value across the organization.

Unify BI Tools and Applications

A BI Portal holistically surfaces all analytics assets from across the enterprise – regardless of the underlying tool or application. This complete view of analytics resources supports business processes and decision making.

BI Portal functionality is a foundational component of the ZenOptics Analytics Hub technology that is designed to help enterprise users and decision-makers to discover analytics assets, compose workflows to support business processes, and scale analytics value across the organization.
