Everything You Need to Know about 2022 BI Trends: How the Cloud is Taking Over

by Samantha E. Whetstone / January 20, 2022


A new year means new trends to look for in business intelligence software – and like you, we want to be up-to-date with all the latest changes in the industry. But you know what is better than being up-to-date on the trends? Setting the trends. And that is just what we are doing here at BigSquare. We don’t just try to stay caught up with the trends, we watch to see what our clients need and anticipate those needs by offering new and improved software and services. 

The site Toucan Toco posted a blog 6 Business Intelligence Trends for 2022 which details the latest trends for this year– based upon the needs of clients and how they can be better met by software companies. Let’s take a look at some of these trends and the ways BigSquare is already setting these trends. 

Top BI Trends for 2022

  1. Guided Business Analytics and Downfall of the “Citizen Scientist”
    Having access to data on your business is great, but what if you can’t make sense of that data? It’s not going to be of much use to you if you don’t understand the data or its relevance. Many firms trained individuals to be able to understand and process complicated data, but this is an expensive and inefficient habit that is trending downwards in 2022 BI.

    That’s why a primary focus of BigSquare from the beginning has been to make user-friendly software. No overwhelming spreadsheets and contextless numbers. Our software uses visually attractive presentations and clear, simple data summaries. We don’t just give you the numbers, we tell you what they mean.

  2. Customizable Software
    Even the most sophisticated software cannot be made in a one-size-fits-all format and truly meet the needs of all of its users. Every firm is unique and even within a firm, different departments might need to utilize the software in different ways. And over time, a business’s needs develop and evolve– and so should their software. BI users and software creators are beginning to realize this and there is a definite trend towards customizable software in 2022.

    But with BigSquare, we already offer customizable software. Whether you are looking for new software or are already one of our clients, we can work with you to adapt our software to your specific needs and the ever-changing needs of the industry. With BigSquare, you can rest assured that even as your business grows and develops, you won’t outgrow our software, because we’ll grow right alongside you.

  3. Focusing on Adoption
    So you’ve got a great software program, but only a low percentage of your staff has really gotten on board with using it? What’s the point of budgeting large sums of money for a high-tech BI software if you aren’t going to use it to its full potential.

    This is a common problem with BI software across the industry– a low adoption rate. But at BigSquare? We have an 85% adoption rate while other companies in the industry range from 25-30%. This is largely due to the appeal of our software and ease of use, but also our system support which allows us to work with our clients to promote adoption.

  4. Mobilizing Business Intelligence
    Let’s be honest, while we might be hoping to see a light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel, the world is never fully returning to the pre-pandemic era. And that couldn’t be more true for BI software. The world is more mobile and remote than ever and the sooner BI software catches up with that notion, the better for everyone.

    At BigSquare, we understand that it is imperative that all of our users be able to easily access the same data whether from the office, home or on the go. And that info needs to be seamlessly updated so everyone is always on the same page no matter where they are working from. But don’t worry, we are once again ahead of the trends by offering ONE hyperresponsive cube, mobile-ready responsive design.
