Infruid’s 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.
