Heine Krog Iversen, CEOTraditionally, companies have stored data on-premises under the tight control of technology management. However, as the requirement for self-service analytics has become a greater need for corporate business users over the years, companies began searching for technology solutions to allow staff to have instant access to corporate data—while still ensuring that access is granted with control systems for security, governance, and privacy.
In other words, the challenge for companies has been, “How do we strategically manage all of our existing and future corporate data, provide self-service analytics, and take advantage of the benefits of the cloud?”
