Does “performance tuning” sound like an all too familiar overhead? One can easily add dashboards and run complex reports on cloud BI without worrying about the processing speed or the number of users simultaneously logged in. In a traditional on-premise setup these little things could cause glitches and slow down your day. To counter glitches in an on-premise setup, the only way out would be to heavily invest money and time, in upgrading hardware. With a cloud based setup, it’s only a matter of a few clicks – you can ramp up or down your resources in a jiffy!
