Effective enterprises ensure staff have the vital 10 to 15 KPI dashboards & reporting to anticipate potential problems and monitor achievement of SLAs. 

Bill Schmarzo adds a very important challenge- to involve business executives with data scientists and analysts to find that elusive 16th KPI. The insight that would make a major leap forward in competitive advantage and performance.

Self-service analytics as a component of a secure and scalable Analytics Platform is a practical way of achieving this.  It encourages line of business staff to experiment by querying and analysing data. It allows analysts to discover new insights and share & test hypotheses with selected colleagues.

As long as this is implemented as an integral part of a scalable and secure analytics platform you will avoid creating silos of insight and potential security leaks.
