4 Key Advantages of Business Intelligence in the Cloud

Influential has worked with analytics and Business Intelligence tools and platforms for many years, and has watched its evolution with great interest.

With so many enterprises switching to the cloud for their platforms, infrastructure and services it’s worth taking a look at the advantages of using BI in the cloud as well.

Cloud for Business


The power of BI rests on delivering key information quickly. Computing in the cloud provides agile, lightweight accessibility to BI applications such as SAP, IBM or Oracle, across multiple devices and web browsers.

This means your BI is no longer limited by the need to access applications on site, and your data analytics can be delivered at the speed of a click.


There are some significant advantages to cloud BI above on-premise applications:

  1. Fast Deployment – Cloud applications require no additional hardware or software installations, meaning a speedy deployment.
  2. Ease of Use – Cloud BI applications are generally easier to set up and to use, meaning less IT involvement and reduced costs.
  3. Scalability and elasticity – Cloud applications are scalable to cope with user increases, even at a rapid pace.
  4. Accessibility – Cloud BI applications are accessible from any browser, anywhere, on any device with an internet connection.
