Data you can’t see clearly is data you can’t see the point of. So how does your data look? Clear? Understandable? Usable? Or complex, cluttered and unfit for purpose?
The way your data is shared and presented is crucial to the way it’s utilised. Impenetrable columns of figures are not just hard to look at but hard to interpret. Yet they could contain invaluable information just waiting to drive your business efficiency and profitability.
What you need are Data Analysis tools which make data understandable to everyone, at a glance.
More intelligent Business Intelligence
The Business Intelligence your data provides needs to get more intelligent. One way it can is through effective visualization tools.
These tools help turn data into highly graphical, easily understood, quickly assimilated visual representations.
If the data reveals sales hotspots, what’s more natural and comprehensible than representing them visually as – for example – spots of different shades of red? If the data contains geographical information, why not present it on a map?
But making it easy to understand is only half the story.
Data doesn’t have to be dead. Not when Data Analytics tools can bring it to life and make it more usable.
With interactive data analytics’ tools’, you can explore your data in different ways, and use predictive capabilities to better foresee the future.
Agile Solutions can firstly help you to:
- identify the BI & Data analytics tools you need
- install, configure and train in them
- Drive valuable insights in your data
Then help you make the best use of your data to drive your business using the three stages of Data Analytics:
Step 1. Descriptive
Use your new tools to analyse your data and discover what has happened in whatever area you are analysing (how sales figures have changed, production has gone up or down, costs have increased and so on).
Step 2. Predictive
Based on the information discovered in Step 1, we will show you how to look into the future, to predict what is going to happen within any area of your business operations
Step 3. Prescriptive
Once you have made predictions, you will have a number of possible outcomes. By looking at all likely models, you can decide the best course of action to prescribe to achieve your long-term business objectives – whichever prediction materialises. However, you must continue to track and analyse your data, so you can identify which model you are in and which prescription to apply.
