Business Intelligence

Business Intelligence (BI) helps business people make more informed decisions by providing them timely, data-driven answers to their business questions. BI analyzes data stored in data warehouses, operational databases, and/or ERP systems (i.e. SAP®, Oracle…) and transforms it into attractive and easy to understand dashboards and reports. BI delivers the insight needed to make strategic planning decisions, improve operational efficiencies, and optimize business processes.
