Full-Stack Business Intelligence Software

Full-stack BI solutions are useful for organizations that wish to deliver relatively stable operational reports in a consistent format to front-line staff across the organization. The advantages of this kind of enterprise reporting capability is the consistency of the data sets being used across the entire organization which makes it easy to create alignment.

Key Components

These solutions have a number of key components, although every solution does not necessarily have each component of the stack:

  • Data warehouse: A relational database designed specifically for data analysis instead of standard transactional processing. It acts as the conduit between operational data stores and the gaining of insight based on composite data. Slices of data from the warehouse—usually summary data for a single department like sales or finance—are stored in a “data mart” for quicker access.
  • Extract, Transform, Load (ETL): The first important task is to extract the data from the various data sources and load it into a data warehouse where it is normalized (organized into tables while cleaning the data and removing redundancy and inconstancies). Once it has been appropriately structured it is available for querying and analysis.
  • OLAP or ad-hoc query tools: OLAP (Online Analytical Processing), and its close cousin ROLAP—(relational) online analytical processing, is a technology that allows users to query data across multiple dimensions, for building standard reports or for enabling users to ask a specific business question.
  • Presentation layer: Dashboards, scorecards and reports presenting the data to users in a visually appealing way that is easy to understand. In response to the great success of data discovery and visualization tools like Tableau and QlikView, many full-stack vendors have also built their own data discovery and visualization tools which are sometimes, but not always, integrated with the rest of the platform.

On-Premise vs. Cloud BI

Full-stack solutions are often primarily on-premise solutions and can be difficult and expensive to deploy. Increasingly, though, full-stack vendors are building cloud versions of their platforms, although these are often not true multi-tenant SaaS offerings. However, there are a number of vendors like Birst and GoodData who offer full-stack solutions which were originally designed as multi-tenant SaaS solutions.
