The Compelling Economics of Cloud-based Analytics

Over the past few years, Aberdeen has been following the emergence of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) as a viable platform for Business Intelligence (BI) deployments. In the SaaS model, software itself is not licensed or owned by the organization; it is provided as a service and rented. The service is usually paid for on a subscription basis, and fees may be assessed on enterprise-wide use, on a per user basis, or based on other measures such as data volume. This report is the second in a series exploring the growing adoption and maturity of SaaS BI. Based on data drawn from Aberdeen’s agile BI research (Agile BI: Three Steps to Analytic Heaven), this document highlights the economic benefits that can accrue from the adoption and use of Software-as-a-Service in comparison to traditional BI deployments.
