The deployment environment for your Business Intelligence (BI) software shouldn’t be a last-minute consideration when choosing a BI vendor. Different BI software vendors offer different options for deployment. Vendors may offer only one environment, one environment plus limited-functionality additional environments, or a range of full-service environment options. Examining the deployment options when assessing vendors is critical in business decision-making for future spending and infrastructure calculations.
Deployment refers to where you are going to run your business intelligence software. Since there is a lot of number crunching behind the scenes, you have workloads to run. While self-hosting your BI tool can be a good solution if you have the resources for it, you may also look to public cloud vendors for an alternative solution. As is the case with any resource-consuming operations, it’s good to have options when it comes to deploying your BI software.
BI software that has vendor lock-in means that you only have one option to host your business intelligence software. For example, Microsoft’s Power BI is native to Azure, Microsoft’s cloud services platform. So while there is a limited-functionality on-premise offering, the full-service BI tool is only available on Azure.
Vendor-neutral deployment is the most flexible option when it comes to running your BI software. This means your BI software is cloud-agnostic and can run on various platforms such as AWS or Azure, plus with options for on-premise or a hybrid deployment.
- Run your BI workloads on your choice of platform or on-premise
- Migrate workloads to a different provider if they release a better service offering
- No concern for future lock-in to one specific provider should cost increase significantly
Our customers value choice - and so do we. That’s why we offer vendor-neutral deployment for our BI software. We think having options is great, not only now, but for the future, when BI workloads might scale or change. Whether it’s running on-premise or in the cloud, our software works the same.
bipp was designed from day one to be cloud-agnostic and offers a choice of deployment options. This future-proof, multi-cloud approach means you aren’t locked into a provider and don’t need to move data to gain insight from it.
