Business Intelligence

Structure Your Business!

Intelligently develop, clean up and structure your data and put it to use successfully.

Business intelligence (BI) provides the foundation for analyzing information and making sound data-driven decisions. In order for your IT and business departments to benefit from this, you need a consolidated and well-maintained data landscape. We assist you in building a strong foundation for data management, mastering the necessary tools and creating structures that make it easy and intuitive for operational managers to know what they need for their individual reports and where to find this information.

Is your data ready for a business intelligence injection?

You want to gain deep insight into your corporate data, derive meaningful and valuable information from it and put it to productive use throughout the company? All you need to do is prepare the data systematically and make it available to users in a demand-driven, intuitive way.

Well, that’s easier said than done since there are many pitfalls to avoid when it comes to managing corporate data. In most companies, technical and organizational data silos are the norm, as are inadequate data governance processes. However, it takes a systematic approach to business intelligence in order to efficiently reach your goal of turning small data into great business cases.

We will show you how.

Business intelligence, or BI for short, refers to the grand total of solutions used to systematically analyze your own company. This includes the collection, evaluation and presentation of corporate data with the aim of consistently gaining insights that support management decisions.

The facts:

Many companies are still “flying blind,” meaning they do not make decisions based on comprehensive and up-to-date information. Admittedly, there is no standard solution and no tool that can do everything at the push of a button. But BI lays the methodological and technical foundation for accessing, preparing and using data in a structured way.

Why this matters:

Without BI, there is no reporting, no data analytics, no data lakes. BI is a more relevant business tool than ever, and this will not change anytime soon. This is because BI is about helping the IT and business side interact and communicate effectively. If this does not happen, the foundation of your data-driven decisions will crack and crumble.

The future:

A needs-based BI strategy provides modern BI functionality in an agile, compliant and scalable manner. To help you achieve this, we ensure that business departments, IT experts and top managers communicate and collaborate on BI. In addition to consulting, we also offer to implement the strategy. Moreover, we provide targeted training that allows you to tap into additional potential for innovation and for staying ahead of the competition.
