This video demonstrates how incredibly fast and easy it is to create BI templates for ad-hoc queries. The start point is ourBI product installed. (Note that installed does not mean create cubes, build queries, etc. – it means run the installer and click OK 4 times.)
This goes through the process of connecting to a database, defining the variables to run queries against, design the template, and then run it performing queries. And that entire process from start to your are up and running is 9:39.
I don’t think there is another BI product out there that can come close to this. No setup, no configuration, no nothing. And in under 10 minutes a non-programmer can have their first B.I. template running and be performing queries against it.
If you want to see the actual templates, go to Sample B.I. templates for the videos.
