					Yellowfin 6.2 to Reveal a Better Way to Consume and Act on BI Content

December 2012.

The Yellowfin 6.2 Webinar will unveil major additions to Yellowfin’s
Collaborative BI capabilities, including a fully integrated collaboration
and presentation platform for BI. This new feature, and method for BI
content – BI user interaction, is set to boost Yellowfin’s already
infamous reputation for Collaborative BI.

“We don’t want to give to much away yet, but this platform is set to
change the way the market perceives the purpose of BI, and the way
organizations make decisions,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie. “This
development will create a new paradigm in BI and business communication,
enabling users to integrate fully interactive data-rich presentations
into their natural decision-making processes, to generate an analytics
culture, realize BI ROI and drive real fact-based action.”

Historically, the BI industry has been plagued by notoriously poor
success rates, with user adoption reported to be anywhere between eight
and 24 percent. Global technology analyst and advisory firm, Gartner, has
previously stated that 80 percent of BI projects fail, citing poor
communication and collaboration as the primary reasons.

Rable said that Yellowfin’s soon-to-be-unveiled mechanism for
communicating and sharing BI content would directly address the issues
highlighted by Gartner.

“BI has a problem – it doesn’t deliver a ROI; not by itself anyway,” said
Rabie. “BI end-users generate business value and BI ROI when they utilize
BI content to make more efficient and effective decisions. But, the
tricky part is that most BI users don’t want to build reports, no matter
how easy it is to do. They just want to use fact-based insight to make
better decisions.

“To do that, they need to be able to easily consume, share, interact and
collaborate with their data. Yellowfin is about to revolutionize the way
that this decision-making process takes place.

“As companies, we spend a lot of time and money working out how to
capture information. I think allowing people to connect to and share that
knowledge is what good business analytics and information management is
all about.”
