What is Scalability?
Scalability is the capacity of a system to make itself available to users as workloads grow. In short, scalability allows your applications to be available to everyone– regardless of the demand. Any system that improves performance as a proportional amount of hardware is added is known as a scalable system.
Many business intelligence (BI) solutions on the market are scalable systems by design. The benefit to your organization is your changing requirements can easily be adjusted. From the end user perspective, there are many benefits. Scalability makes your application available to everyone for increased collaboration. Different users can share their findings, collaborate with other departments, and even begin sharing insights with people outside your company such as customers and stakeholders. This availability allows for collective knowledge to take place and improve the insights derived from your BI solution.
