Business Intelligence (BI) Services

Gone are the days that data was strictly for static reporting of what happened in the past. In today’s world data is being used for operational insights, predicting future events and “Googling your data”.

Business Intelligence (BI) includes reporting, online analytical processing, analytics, data mining, complex event processing, business performance management, benchmarking, predictive analytics and prescriptive analytics. All of these functions encompass the methods in which end-users consume data. Robust reporting and analytical capabilities allow an organization to leverage their data to the fullest extent. Having a solid data foundation is great, but if your users cannot get to the data they need or do not have the proper tools to use the data, the data environment will not succeed.

Reporting and Analytics Assessment and Strategy

Edgewater Consulting works with organizations to insure that their data infrastructure is ready to drive change. Our consultants work with critical stakeholders to define the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that bring to light intelligence that drives your company’s success. Real-time analytics and business intelligence allow management to understand the state of operations quickly, allowing for flexible, nimble decisions. Many organizations have an overabundance of reporting and analytical tools in use. While having options is always good, an excess can lead to increased costs in support, licensing and development. Additionally, these tools often apply different rules to data that can lead to conflicting, and often costly, results. Standardizing on a set of reporting and analytical tools for the organization can results in significant cost savings and streamlined operations. Edgewater can provide an assessment of the current environment and development of a strategy to assist an organization in moving to a set of reporting and analytical tools that meet the organization’s unique demands.
