One of those buzz words that has been creeping in of recent years, Business Intelligence (BI), encompasses some major contributions to business management that have been enabled by the Internet and by the free-form nature of the Web browser.
Business Intelligence is a combination of:
- 24/7 access to your business data via the Internet
- Turning data into information
- Freedom from the fixed format handed down from paper reporting
- Focussing on the important numbers, the critical details, the things that matter
- At a glance presentation via graphs, presenting key data via easy to understand Dashboard displays.
- Automatic alerting to key data good, or bad, allowing reinforcement of success, and interception of problems before they build up
Business Intelligence used to be the domain of the very large business, with six figure budgets for deployment, and off-line data warehouses needing much expensive setting up. Our Dynamic AI BI solution is both agile enough to handle high volumes of live data, and cost effective at the small to medium business level. But do note that it is used in some very large businesses, including the NHS, and in Banking sector, for which it was first developed.
BI is not just reporting
Business Intelligence is a management tool that can change the way you manage your business, by gathering together key data into easily understood and acted upon information displays. You may discover things you didnt know about your business, or department, and you will be able to direct your efforts to what matters, and what needs attention, well before these become critical.
Other benefits include:
- Accuracy and reliability of budgeting and forecasting processes through the integration of your latest key information with standard spreadsheet technologies
- Multi layered banking standard security ensures that only those entitled to access data, or design reports are allowed to do so
- Interactive analysis via simple to understand drill down capabilities
- Cost effective, flexible and easily scaleable deployment
- Low cost named user licensing designed to meet small business needs
- Self-service reporting and analysis at everyones fingertips "any time, any place"
Our Dynamic AI Business Intelligence system provides everything you need to gather, collate, analyse and present data from an unlimited range of sources "any time, any where" - and in real time as well. This means decision making is no longer dependant on historical data from your last set of reports but is as up to date as the last transaction recorded.
Dynamic AI provides many advantages over traditional BI offerings that are in contrast inflexible, often with the need to re-structure data for performance or presentational reasons and which may need costly consultancy expertise to implement. Dynamic AI also understands that you may not have expert business analysts readily available, and provides an "Automated Intelligence" facility that will make short work of analysing your data into meaningful information. Check out our "Dynamic AI TV" pages for a series of informative recorded demonstrations and tutorials in Dynamic AI and Automated Intelligence.
