Business Intelligence (BI)

Business Intelligence (BI) involves a wide range of tools and techniques for collecting, cleaning and enriching structured or semi-structured data, and storing it in various repositories such as databases, data warehouses, data lakes, etc. Data is managed in standardized formats to facilitate and accelerate information access. The objective of BI is to produce key performance indicators (KPIs) enabling you to understand the past and analyze the present, in order to project a long-term vision. Many companies use it for their strategic monitoring and their economic outlook.

The ability to provide relevant data in a clear and user-friendly manner is a prerequisite for deployment of a beneficial BI solution. We offer BI and Big Data concepts enabling better decision making, in order to render your business more competitive.
