What is Business intelligence (BI) and why do I need it?

Business Intelligence (BI) is the art and science of delivering the right data at the right time. It includes data warehousing, data analysis and reporting. Having a Business Intelligence (BI) solution means you can have the ability to make decisions on facts, not just on a hunch.

 

How long does it take to build a Business Intelligence solution?

We believe by using the latest in BI technology we can develop a useful solution for you in weeks, not years. Your business needs targeting information now not some time in distant future. By developing daily dashboards and reporting you can see your organisations data so that you can adapt and respond quickly to changing markets.

 

What will a Business Intelligence solution provide for my organisation?

A Business Intelligence solution will give you the ability to understand and analyse the changes and fluctuations in your business. It can also help you to improve efficiencies, discover and manage customer behaviour and give you the power to of basing your decisions on real facts.

 

Who are Business Intelligence systems intended for?

BI is for any member of the company who makes decisions. Reports or dashboards can tailored to an individuals level (analysts, managers, directors, auditors, etc.), providing different kinds of information in each case.

 

Is it necessary to have specialised staff for Business Intelligence?

While building some of complex reports and dashboards requires a specialist like us at brox ltd, your own staff can easily build simple reports and drill through data to the underlying information. Not only that but brox ltd can provide your staff with customised training so that they can become expert users.

 

Which Business Intelligence products do you work with?

We are experts in Microsoft Business Intelligence tools including SQL server, SQL Server Reporting Services, SQL Server Analytics Services and Sharepoint. We also use with IBM business intelligence tools Cognos Suite and are familiar with IBM Watson, QlikView and Tableau.

 

Will we able to use your Business Intelligence solution with our existing applications and databases?

One the key ways we like to work is to take your existing applications and integrating it into the business intelligence platform. We also specialise in automating manual processes and integrating data from one application into another to the risk of mistakes and data loss.

 

What is a data analysis?

Data analysis is a process of inspecting, cleaning, transforming, and modelling data with the goal of discovering useful information, suggesting conclusions, and supporting decision-making.

 

What can data analysis do for my business?

Data analysis can tell you what happened and why. It also, with predictive analytics, tell you what might happen or let you uncover interesting and useable information about your business.

 

What is a big data?

Big data is all the information collected from devices attached to the internet, including what is bought online, smartphone communications, social media interactions and ‘smart’ device data like your car or power meter. It includes unstructured content like opinions from social media comments, images, smartphone data. This is valuable to your business as it can help you make predictions about customer behaviour and revenue generation.

 

What can big data do for my business?

Big data can provide real time data and predictive analytics. The most important first step is to find that subset of data that will benefit your company the most. Massive amounts of data are of no use if it is not of the correct quality.  Big data will be of the most benefit if it is integrated with your other business data sources and your data warehouse rather than keep in a data silo.

 

What is a data warehouse?

A data warehouse is a repository of your organization’s stored data. In essence, it is a place where content from different systems can be consolidated together in one logical location. Data Warehouse facilitates reporting and analysis. It is used for an organisation's need for reliable, consolidated, unique and integrated reporting and analysis of its data, at different levels of aggregation.

 

What are the signs of needing a data warehouse?

If you have data all over your company in different areas and it is inaccurate or not shared then you need a data warehouse. If you have too many reports to read, and by the time they arrive the information is out of date then you need a data warehouse. A data warehouse will help you organise and summarise your data in a useful way.

 

What will a data warehouse do for us?

A Data Warehouse provides a common format for all data of interest regardless of the data's source. This makes it easier to report and analyse information. Because the data warehouse is separate from operational systems, data warehouses provide retrieval of data without slowing down operational systems. Data warehouses facilitate BI reports such as trend reports, exception reports, and reports that show actual performance versus goals.
