“Smarter” BI: AI-driven analytics with Pyramid

Why do BI applications often fail to take root and flourish? Many analytics vendors recognize the crucial goal of democratizing access to analytics. Yet to bridge the gap, they bolt-on augmented features, or shortcut the fundamentals with dramatically oversimplified capabilities, like an entire platform featuring a single “search bar.” On their own, these technologies are insufficient for enterprise situations that depend on cross-team collaboration and decision-making.

The fundamental problem is the analytical tools are not matched appropriately to users’ needs. The key is to implement BI with the success of each individual employee in mind: it should make analytics easier for everyone, without sacrificing any of the sophistication. What’s more, the technology must possess fundamental enterprise capabilities that strengthen the trust each user has with the underlying data and analytics.

Smart Analytics, built into the core of Pyramid

 

This is how Pyramid does “smart”

Augmented. Smart. AI-driven. Call it what you want, we’ve got it in Pyramid Analytics. In fact, it’s everywhere. We’ve threaded smart capabilities throughout the application to augment your experience.

Importantly, we’ve incorporated these capabilities in a way that blends them into the analytics workflow, rather than override or interrupt traditional process. While other platforms bolt on AI capabilities, we’ve imbued it into the very fabric of our offering, hardening trust in the process.

Data Structure Analyzer

Data structures are often too complex for users to diagnose gaps and errors in frequently used models. For example, data model structures can change because of upgrades to an existing model, or if the content has been re-pointed to a new data model that differs from the original. The Structure Analyzer (originally called the "Missing Data Wizard") is an AI-driven content tool and wizard designed to help users find and correct broken analytic content due to changes in the underlying data source structures.
