Business Intelligence Consulting

What exactly is Business Intelligence?

Business Intelligence (BI) is a process of data analysis whose goal is to increase companies’ performances by helping managers, employees and users make more informed and well thought through business decisions.

Business Intelligence systems consist of countless tools, applications and methods that help companies gather valuable data from both their internal systems and external sources. The gathered data then goes through a series of analyses and queries, based on which reports, data visualizations and statements are created that can make the jobs of both decision makers and their subordinates significantly easier and more effective.

Business Intelligence can have numerous advantages, including, for example, the acceleration and improvement of decision making processes; the optimization of internal processes; achieving more effective operation; exploring new sources of income or even gaining other types of advantages over rivals in the business. Business Intelligence is also able to discover the newest trends on the market and potential solutions for business problems that await an answer.

Why should you choose us?

In our work we have gained a lot of experience, which the larger companies require of us, through the development of safely operating, complex rights-managed architectures that serve hundreds of users. Each time we introduce the IBM Cognos system that we have implemented, we do so by creating a concept, and preparing licensing plans, resource plans, as well as architectural plans. We have commissioned IBM Cognos 10 systems operating in both the financial and the public administration sectors; which in addition to a high number of users (> 100) also function on multiple platforms (Windows, Solaris, Linux), using a variety of data sources (Oracle, Sybase, MS-SQL), and operate in an architecture that provides high availability (load balancing, failover cluster).

Similar to the structure of the Cognos 10 BI system, the WEB-based systems created by our software development team are all multi-tier, J2EE technology-based applications. This serves as an excellent basis for our professionals to use their combined knowledge of IBM Cognos and JAVA in order to see to the most unique user demands that arise in opposition of the base IBM Cognos system, in an effective way, and to create their own unique solutions using the applications found in the Cognos Framework Developer toolbox. As a result of our latest development, we integrate our statements created in the IBM Cognos Framework into existing intranet applications.

Beside Business Intelligence systems we are also able to create modern and innovative integrated Corporate Performance Management systems (CPM) as well, which provides managers with the opportunity to check the organization’s strategic and operative control processes and to measure performance. With the help of IBM Cognos products we are able to create any kind of controlling and management tools in a consistent and integrated way. From strategic planning and the measurement of strategy implementation, through the connection of strategic and operative planning, all the way to operative measurements and analyses.
