We understand Business Intelligence (BI) very broadly as a set of tools supporting the use of knowledge hidden in the data that every company or organization collects or acquires.
From the simplest applications, such as business alerts or when calculating typical or slightly more complex KPIs, to extracting non-obvious conclusions from the analysis of summaries of seemingly unrelated information.
We especially value solutions operating in real time, but most often based on data warehouses for efficiency reasons.
In order to speed up and facilitate access to information, we most often use dashboards that visualize the results in a way that is easy to read and allows for a quick response. Of course, we also use automated reporting and notification processes.
Interactive dashboards allow you to obtain different sections from the same data sets - observing an interesting tendency, we can very quickly come to an explanation of its cause. In addition, interactivity - most often the possibility of applying filters to data - allows an analyst or IT department to prepare a universal tool for a manager that will satisfy most of his needs in obtaining reports and make him independent in this process.
BI tools can also help business organizations to automate the processes of consolidation or closing sales or production periods. Also for budgeted plans.
