    Self-service BI solutions have loosened up bottlenecks that occurred with traditional models of leaving data analysis up to IT. When teams can pull reports and access information as needed, as opposed to waiting to have IT or the data analysts run the numbers, it means more users have access to powerful data that can help shape decision making, company-wide.
