How Do Customers Benefit from Business Intelligence Services?

How Do Customers Benefit from Business Intelligence Services?

Businesses, particularly mid-sized and enterprise-level ones, will reap many benefits from an advanced BI implementation. Let's see how leveraging business intelligence enhances operational processes and secures steady growth.

  • Fully Leveraged Data

    If configured and integrated correctly, enterprise BI systems make the most of your business data. Firstly, a business intelligence service provider handles BI data management, i.e., organizes and aggregates data from siloed/scattered data sources in a data warehouse, ensures safe data migration, and maintains data quality for accurate processing. Secondly, a business intelligence agency creates and customizes BI tools for effective data usage, from routine data tracking and creating reports to making complex prognoses.

  • Accurate Forecasting

    Cutting-edge business intelligence tools allow for comprehensive data analysis, which takes the quality of insights gleaned and the accuracy of forecasts to a new level. With all historical and real-time data pieces being captured and processed, businesses improve their descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics. In other words, they uncover trends and patterns better, get more precise in predicting business outcomes/user behavior/etc., and change strategies with stronger positive impact.

  • Effective Decisions

    Every day, executives, managers, and team members make big and small decisions largely based on business analytics. Each decision, to some extent, affects major business goals. But to make sense of big data, you can't do without advanced data analytics. The essence of business intelligence solutions is exactly to facilitate data-informed decision-making.

  • Optimized Processes

    A company equipped with a well-integrated BI solution can streamline its workflows on several levels. Advanced reporting and predictive analytics capabilities of BI tools help cut costs and time needed to complete data analytics tasks. Teams across an organization get more objective in assessing what actions are worth their while to reallocate funds and efforts. Finally, with all data put in order and available for all stakeholders, communication and collaboration inside teams and between departments gets faster and more transparent.

  • Mitigated Risks

    Modern business intelligence technologies customized by BI experts give a comprehensive view of the current state of the org and crucial business insights into both opportunities and risks. For instance, robust predictive analytics tools aid in unraveling upward and downward demand trends. It, in turn, makes teams better at inventory planning.

Our Business Intelligence Solutions and Services

As a business intelligence solution provider, we offer all the BI-related services to aggregate, prepare, integrate, analyze, and visualize your data. Learn how to use our BI expertise to level up your core business processes.

  • Business Intelligence Consulting Services
    Our developers, data science pros, and analysts learn your case and provide guidance on the best path to take, whether it be the BI soft upgrade, implementing a self-service system, building one from the ground up, or hybrid options. We can carry out a comprehensive audit to select the optimal BI architecture and tech stack for your project. Besides, we craft a step-by-step implementation/optimization roadmap.
  • Enterprise BI Systems Development
    The service encompasses all stages of business intelligence implementation (creating a custom BI product or adopting a third-party one). We start with studying your org's structure, processes, data sources, challenges, and needs. Then, we come up with a BI implementation concept, defining the infrastructure and technologies. Then follows the development: we create a data warehouse (with structured data) and data lake (with raw data), establish robust data security rulings, embed BI into your systems, introduce AI-powered BI solutions, set up custom reports and dashboards.
  • Predictive Analytics and Data Mining
    AI-based business intelligence tools are getting better at generating insights for improving UX, customer retention, marketing campaigns, personalization, pricing strategies, and so on. Our data science pros help to utilize machine learning and other subsets of artificial intelligence for data mining (detecting dependencies, patterns, trends, etc.) and predictive modeling.
  • Big Data Analytics
    Some customers have a massive data influx and struggle to process it all quickly and efficiently enough. It means they need more sophisticated business intelligence services. With the help of powerful data science approaches, technologies, and tools, we develop performant systems capable of storing and analyzing large data arrays.

    Self-service BI tools make data analysis comprehensible and manageable to employees without special knowledge. As they're granted faster and handier access to critical info (without involving analysts and coders), they're more proactive and flexible in drawing conclusions and taking action. We'll help you choose a user-friendly platform (Tableau, Microsoft Power BI, Google Data Studio, Qlik Sense, or others) and integrate it with your data sources and workflows. Then, we'll add custom logic, dashboards, reports, and data visualizations.

FAQ on Business Intelligence Services

What are the three types of BI?

The first is descriptive analytics, focusing on aggregating and summing up historical data to highlight certain tendencies. The second is predictive analytics, using the same data to project possible future outcomes or trends. The third is prescriptive analytics, suggesting concrete actions based on data and predictions.

What is the difference between BI and BA?

Business intelligence is focused primarily on descriptive analysis, while business analytics deals with predictive and prescriptive analysis. However, when speaking about BI systems, we usually mean implementing both components.

What are business intelligence services?

BI services are meant to create, choose, or customize a BI tool/system to consolidate an org's data, safely store it, monitor trends and KPIs, create meaningful reports as well as make accurate forecasts.

Do I need a BI system?

Such a system puts all your data in order and improves decision-making at all levels, from managers to executives. So, all businesses and non-profits will take advantage of having some kind of BI tool.

Should I go for a ready-made or custom BI platform?

For SMBs, we suggest opting for an out-of-the-box product, as its capabilities should be sufficient for their use cases, given that professionals assist in selecting and configuring the tool. For enterprises, we advise deep customization or building a BI solution from the ground up so that it meets all requirements and can address specific business tasks.
