Business Intelligence (BI) is a broad classification that has different meanings across different sized business organizations. It is implemented in different ways, but no matter what the organizational size, BI is company data gathered and presented in ways that provide a strategic approach to evidence-based business decision-making.
BI provides a wide variety of evidence-based information that management needs to know for optimal organizational performance aggregated into summary report form, often referred to as “dashboards” including,
- Individual and group sales numbers compared to peers, teams or units, including historical performance
- Actionable inventory or resource trends
Potential trouble areas within:
- Product sales
- Sales cycle
- Production delivery timeframes
- Service delivery
- Bottleneck analyzation
Microsoft Power BI®Consulting and Expertise
As the level of influence of technology over business grows, so, too, does the importance of the analysis or “analytics”
of actual data provided by technology. Bygone are the days of decision-making based only on the gut-feelings of sales and
management executives. Today, decisions about inventory, sales, and HR are made from dashboards and scorecards that provide
visualization of data-based facts, not just guesses or feelings.
Power BI gives us the ability to quickly leverage the knowledge of our software architects about business and the kind of
summary data that allow an organization to grow and prosper. Visualizing the effect that a “hot product” is having on sales
may spur promotions on related products and knowing that one department is experiencing high turnover may occasion supervisory
or management changes. Imagine having that kind of information – summarized, every day, on your desktop. Decisions that influence
profit can be made in a proactive fashion rather than in a reactive fashion. With Power BI, we can provide this kind of data
analysis in as little as 10 business days at a very reasonable cost.
SQL Databases, Excel Spreadsheets, and Legacy Systems Correlated
In just a few minutes of no-pressure conversation with us, you will know if Power BI can be used with your installed software and
databases to extract the decision-making information you need. If your installed systems cannot be utilized by Power BI, we can
still provide usable business intelligence by creating a custom BI solution.
