BlogTraditional Business Intelligence is dead

SugarCon 2018

The demand for Business Analytics is only increasing these days. Amount of data is growing rapidly and the business environment changes constantly. Which makes it ever important to take smart decisions for your Business with the help of Business Analytics.

However, many traditional Business Intelligence (BI) stand-alone tools are often not up to the task any more. The power, the speed, visualization and easy User Interface have become "must haves" in BI tools nowadays.

For instance, standalone BI tools often have high complexity while the data used are sometimes outdated. The answer to the problem is embedded analytics as part of your current system. No need to log-in to another system, and you always work with real time data. You can click on the chart, drill-down to detailed list and then click to the source entry in order to open and view or edit data that are already in your CRM system. For example, open that specific lead, account or an opportunity in your CRM that stood out and caught your attention when you looked to the chart.

According to Nucleus Research, "Spend on embedded analytics now represents 60 percent of new or additional analytics purchases" ( and it is predicted that the traditional BI would decrease by more than 80%.

IT Sapiens Analytic Reporting Tool offers fully embedded BI solution with many powerful features, elegant data visualization and ease of use! Currently it is fully integrated in SugarCRM, Suite CRM and vTiger and more integrations are coming soon!

Traditional BI is dead. But embedded BI can put you ahead of the competition. And it can be fun too - check out IT Sapiens!

Your report generator ROCKS! Wish I had found it before investing in some other rubbish!

I'm extremely excited about IT Sapiens. We've been using it for about a month and it's by far the best available reporting tool for SugarCRM. The tool is very robust and full of features. Also, the staff and support team are very helpful and are continuing to improve the tool.

Excellent work, communications and skills from developers; I appreciate all effort, commitment and work.

We have bought the latest version of IT Sapiens and it is a fantastic product for Vtiger CRM. By using this I have stopped our remote users having to send external paperwork. Would recommend IT Sapiens to any users using Vtiger CRM.
