IT Best Practices: Intel IT is incorporating cloud business intelligence (BI) into our overall enterprise BI strategy, enabling Intel business units to perform and present analytics on data no matter where it resides—within the enterprise boundaries or outside.
Cloud BI benefits Intel IT through faster deployment of solutions, more flexible capacity, faster and less-expensive exploration of new technologies, as well as reduced capital, licensing, and maintenance costs. We estimate that using a cloud BI strategy can help avoid USD 1 to 2 million in annual costs associated with infrastructure and support (based on 2012 public-cloud pricing) and may reduce the time required to provision infrastructure services by 1 to 4 weeks.
Because the cloud provider manages the infrastructure, BUs can focus on their core business strengths and bring the BI applications to market more quickly.
