Business intelligence simply means understanding your data. But to understand something, you need to "see" it first. This is why we believe that data visualization is the key to effective business intelligence. We promote the use of Tableau, the best data visualization software available. But don't take our word for it, see what leading IT researcher Gartner has to say.
We specialize in quick start business intelligence engagements.
A typical engagement is 3–5 weeks long. Below is an overview of what we do:
Clients without an existing data mart for analysis purposes may require an extended engagement.
- Assess information needs
- Evaluate existing analytics tools and recommend complimentary tools
- Review the current data environment
- Assemble key datasets
- Set up a business intelligence server and demo environment
- Build an initial set of dynamic reports and dashboards
- Suggest business actions to take based on initial discovery
- Provide assistance to productionalize a BI server
- Train analysts to effectively use the new software
Data Extraction & Storage
Clean, well-organized data is the key to effective decision making—otherwise you are just guessing. Many businesses struggle to understand where their enterprise data resides in their systems and how to extract it. We can help you locate, extract, and organize this valuable data, as well as store it in a separate data mart optimized for analytics (if necessary).
If you have advanced analytical needs, VizPoint can assist in a variety of areas, including regression analysis, customer segmentation, descriptive and predictive modeling, A/B testing and sampling, etc.
