Business Intelligence

Building the bridge between Data and Decision Making

Business Intelligence is about getting the right information to the right people, at the right time, via the right channel. Companies use Business Intelligence to improve decision making, reduce costs and identify new business opportunities, including:

  • The ability to view data from multiple sources in a single view
  • The ability to quickly see summaries of data from different places
  • The ability to see data and trends over time
  • The ability to ask “what if” questions and have answers generated based on historical data

“Collaborating data from multiple disparate sources is always a challenge, and we had to be certain that the final result was totally accurate and reliable. The only way to do that is to test it all, section by section. It took a long time, but the end result was worth the effort.”
