Business Intelligence

Business Intelligence (BI) unlocks the information for decision making and enhances your efforts to overcome the economic crisis and to improve your business.

Nowadays, it is more crucial than ever to utilize the most intangible business asset, information, which resides hidden in your primary data that are usually produced in your everyday IT transactions. This Information is the key to precise decision making for sales, costing or organization attribution. Furthermore, it is mandatory that this outcome is easily and fast retrievable, and above all that it is consistent and accurate. Business Intelligence simple transforms the primary data into useful knowledge and reports for rapid decision making.  However, due to the recent technological innovations, the business intelligence (BI) is even simpler, cheaper and more accessible than ever before. It is recommended for businesses who aim to dominate in their market sector or avoid the obstacles of an economic crisis. For example, following use cases of a BI system may be considered:

  • Identify deficiencies in procedures
  • Monitor the effectiveness of sales
  • Analyze operational expenditure
  • Combinatorial monitor of sales versus costs (what if scenarios)
  • Minimize manual processes
  • Compare performance points (KPIs)
  • Prediction for Marketing, Market Basket Analysis & Data Mining

Enhancing user experience

Business intelligence (BI) outcome can be driven and exploit directly from end users, strengthen their role and allow them autonomous access to the required information. The BI mechanism simplifies the integration process and rapidly analyses massive volumes of data.

Sharing and collaborating

The business intelligence utilities allow users to quickly construct, share, and automatic refresh their powerful analytical applications, through a trusted collaboration platform: the Microsoft SharePoint & Microsoft Performance Point.

Efficiency for the IT department and developers

The usefulness of business intelligence (BI) radically reduces the cost of the IT department by allowing ad hoc user requests to be self-serviced and also by improving the data quality of your business, through automated validation workflows.

Microsoft SQL Server features

  • Powerful analysis and display of data in Microsoft Office Excel. A known feature of Microsoft Office Excel 2010 can also be extended with an added feature, the PowerPivot for Excel, and enable users to filter and sort large volumes of interactive multidimensional data in PivotTables.


  • References with fast data connection. The Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services combined with the Report Builder reduces the need expertise for constructing various custom reports, allowing end users to start easily from modular components (query, data areas, charts and graphs) and construct new report or adapt an existing one that resides in a common library.


  • Share analysis and collaboration to them. The SQL Server supports the use of custom made  business intelligence (BI) reports that can be created directly from end users and then shared all over the company. This functionality is achieved by allowing users to publish models and reports to Microsoft SharePoint and making them accessible to others.


  • Ensure that reports are up to date. BI data are refreshed automatically and synchronized in order to ensure that reports are up to date according to the business needs. On the contrary, a not-BI practice creates unsynchronized data islands that lead to management confusion and mistakes in decision making.


  • Simplify content management business intelligence (BI). Gives to the IT department a single monitoring and analysis tool through Microsoft SharePoint. The IT department can monitor the usage, trends and patterns of usefulness of the system through a central dashboard in Microsoft SharePoint or SQL Analysis Services, ensuring that the right security privileges have been applied and that the solutions generated by the end users are continuously available, updated and fully safe.
