Why Business Intelligence?

The question to ask in today’s highly competitive era is - how to:

  • Maintain Profitability

Direction - Why Microsoft Business Intelligence

You do this with agile processes and a quick decision support system that helps you maintain a strategic, tactical and operational edge over your competition.

And the way to achieve this is

By providing every member of your organization with the correct and timely Information needed to take right decisions and effectively perform their role.

  • Identify and reduce unnecessary costs
  • Identify bottlenecks and improve delivery timelines
  • Identify sales drops and performing analysis to find reasons for the same
  • Identify NPAs (non-performing assets) and resources
  • Track resource productivity rates and benchmark against industry standards
Systems carry a wealth of information

Most of the information needed to empower your organization’s decision making processes is held in the systems already used by your organization for day-to-day functioning, such as:

  • MIS (Management Information Systems)
  • ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems
  • CRM (Customer Relationship Management) Systems
  • Customized Software Applications


Accurate and timely reports, analytics and business insight at several levels are crucial requirements for running any operational Business:

Reports for day-to-day operations used by the technical and administrative resources.
Decision support reports required by junior and middle management to evaluate and improve performance of individual teams and sub-departments.
Decision support reports and advanced analytics with powerful slice and dice features required by senior management to evaluate and improve performance of departments.
Summarized analytics with data rollup to an organizational level required by the top management to make strategic and directive decisions for business profitability and growth.

How does BI Work?

The process to assimilate systems to churn out critical Business Information is divided into two parts:

Data Warehousing

In Data Warehousing we bring together all relevant data from various systems to a common database, where we can perform a collective inference on this data to derive critical Business Information.


As part of Business Intelligence, we evaluate this information to identify Business Insights that can help you in improving various strategic, tactical and operational processes in your organization.
