Business Intelligence Solutions
The term Business Intelligence (BI) includes advanced analytical and reporting tools, which allow companies to extract the maximum of relevant information from their sources of data. Relevant and timely information are a key requirement of efficient management of an organization.
For whom are Business Intelligence solutions meant?
BI solutions are meant for everyone who frequently needs relevant and timely information that is based on complex analyses of often varying data. Such information will be welcome by top management and analysts in the entire company alike.
Business Intelligence deals with processing and analyzing historical data. Their meaningful outputs in the form of reports will then be accessible to a company's management.
Modern BI tools are also dedicated to future-modelling, the so-called predictive analysis. Managers and analysts on levels of a company are thus given more tricks to help them manage and develop companies and organizations.
