As more and more people use data-driven management, they also use Business Intelligence tools to analyze and visualize data. But BI tools, like Tableau and Power BI, have one fatal limitation: users can only use the metrics they’ve defined within the visualization tool. This can cause problems if the same metric is used in different places.
To solve this problem, headless BI separates metric definition from visualization. This means that the team that owns the metrics only has to define them once, and they can be used in many different ways. Headless BI makes it easier to use metrics in other tools, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) integrations and API-oriented systems. This enables new use cases that were not possible with visualized-first BI, while also reducing the risk of inconsistencies.
Platforms that use headless BI separate data metrics from presentation layers. This makes it faster to implement metric definitions and keeps consistency across all BI applications. Headless BI is great for people who want to be agile and flexible with their data products.
Headless BI is a new way for companies to use data more effectively, making business operations better. It's a modern business intelligence method that separates the analysis from the presentation. Let's take a closer look at some of its benefits.
Headless BI makes it easier to analyze data by using the same metrics and definitions everywhere. This helps people make better decisions and follow the rules better. Also, because everyone is using the same set of definitions, teams can work faster, reduce costs, and avoid defining the same metrics repetitively.
Headless BI provides resiliency for data engineers by allowing updates to the underlying data structure or migration to a different data warehouse without disrupting end-users or tools that depend on those metrics. This allows data engineers to build a more robust and easier-to-maintain system. It also streamlines testing and deployment procedures, as updates can be made without interrupting the user interface layer.
Previously, the definition of business metrics was limited to one specific way of consuming them - data visualizations - which restricted the scope of BI tools. By contrast, Headless BI enhances agility for business users by providing a new way to consume their business metrics.
This new approach allows business users to access data from multiple places, especially within the business applications they use daily. For example, a marketing person might want to consume the metric "lead scores" in the marketing automation tool in order to define an email marketing campaign based on the contact's lead score.
Headless BI is embedded analytics-friendly, making it ideal for businesses aiming to provide a personalized customer experience and optimize their operations. Metrics formulated through headless BI are highly reusable and composable, allowing multiple uses in different contexts.
Data engineers can build data products within business applications or build composable data products easily for businesses.
