From its beginning 16 years ago, DataSelf has built its solution on the Microsoft BI stack. Then five years ago, DataSelf veered from competitors to incorporate Tableau as the main analytics interface. DataSelf founder and CEO Joni Girardi said, “Since then, our customer base has become much more satisfied with this easier-to-use yet more empowering tool.”
DataSelf Analytics delivers a comprehensive platform that connects out-of-the-box to Microsoft Dynamics and competing ERP and CRM systems. This platform includes a preconfigured data warehouse, connectors and over 5,000 reports, dashboards and KPIs. DataSelf dramatically cuts down the time and effort for mid-sized companies to get value from their data.
“Now we are very excited with the new Power BI version,” said Girardi. Power BI plugs right into DataSelf’s data warehouse and connectors. Clients who prefer Power BI over Tableau will be pleased to benefit from DataSelf’s data warehouse and extensive library of out-of-the-box connectors and templates.

About DataSelf’s future, Joni says, “The move to the cloud opens several BI opportunities for small- and medium-sized businesses. It should become easier, faster and less expensive for them to benefit from cloud technology.”
