Business Intelligence (BI)

As technology solutions capture more and more data; and as the direct cost of maintaining that data has declined over the years, Big Data has become a reality.  The problem is that Big Data doesn’t really help your organization to better control operations or to glean insights into what can and should be improved.  To do that, the data must be transformed into Better Information (the other BI).  And the best information is that which you can use to improve your bottom line.  The next step is to present this Better Information in an intuitive format.  That is what good Business Analytics will do for a company.

    Business Analytics

    Business Analytics will show you important information and compare it to company or industry KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) so that a business can understand where it has been, where it is, and where it is going.  It’s no surprise to know that we can only change or improve on future business transactions, so being able to better forecast or predict the future becomes a game-changer.
