What is Self-Service Reporting?

Self-service reporting allows individual users access to assemble dashboards and compile reports. It’s like going to a self-service store: you are given access to all the items and you choose which ones you need to buy, but you have to select and use them. 

What are the advantages of Self-Service Reporting??

Before, the responsibility of assembling dashboards and compiling reports fell to a company’s best analyst, who would analyze the data, calculate KPIs, and compile the resulting report. An individual user who needed specific data only had these already compiled reports. If they needed a customized report, they had to request it first.

With self-service reporting, individual users no longer have to wait for the reports or rely on the analysis and insights done by others. They can create a customized dashboard and generate their own reports. What are the advantages?

  1. Allows the user to further investigate the data by themselves whenever they need. Individual users may face a situation where they need to quickly analyze new data without waiting for an official report.. Self-service reporting will allow them to create dashboards for themselves and generate reports in an instant. 
  2. The resulting dashboard and/or report suits the user’s needs. As the individual users can have different perspectives on what they need depending on their responsibility at hand, they can use their judgment to look for the data they need and what is most applicable for them at the moment. 
  3. Helps expose your users to data analytics early on. Allowing your users to create dashboards and generate reports early on counts as free training for them to become experts in data analytics. This will also reduce training costs for them once they become part of your analytics teams.
  4. Allows you to stay ahead of competition by giving you a more nuanced picture of the market. Self-service reporting will generate even more reports that will highlight different aspects of your market that may not immediately be visible from the reports generated by your team. These reports will help you gain a more thorough understanding of the market, leading to better decision-making by your business.
