Thanks for posting this article Lynda.

Another factor to consider as well is whether a Saas solution is easier to use by front-line employees using operational analytics than an on-premise solution, or vice-versa. Looking at the economics of Saas, since it usually carries a negligible up-front cost to implement, it usually more appropriate for a small business that has never used a BI solution before. The tool has to be intuitive at this level. This I believe could be a 4th factor to consider.

Thanks Lynda!
