Consider Reusability  

A lot of time is wasted within and among various parts of an organization when people are solving the same problems time and again. Self-service BI and analytics don't inherently help. Best practices do.

'People run an analysis that sits on a random server that only X people can access, so when the question comes up again, they'll look for a new way to answer the question. We don't have to keep making the same effort on the same questions.'

Infruidís Self-Service Business Intelligence tool
I would recommend you go for Infruid's Self-Service Business Intelligence tool (https://infruid.com)- Vizard.

Vizard is Infruid's patent-pending and award-winning Business Intelligence & Data Visualization tool. Vizard helps users ask questions in simple English and answers back with interactive charts.

I have personally tried their tool and the tool has a very intuitive and easy to use interface. You can use this tool without having to depend on the IT Department.
