Business Intelligence

We are experts in Business Intelligence. We make complex projects that require their creation from scratch or modification of Data Warehouse. We also develop more simple ones where this element is not necessary and the dashboards load the data directly from data sources such as ERP, CRM or files like Excel. In Study Cases you may see some Business Intelligence projects which we have deployed.

Companies that use data-driven decision making were, on average 5% more productive and 6% more profitable than their competitors, according to a MIT survey.

What is Business Intelligence?

Business Intelligence is the ability to transform the data generated by companies into useful information in order to make fast decisions which are based on updated data. The process includes from the collection and cleaning of the data, to the visualization of the data with specialized tools.

This technology is a central pillar in the digital transformation, as it gives companies the opportunity to learn about their situation with quality data allowing them to optimize their processes. The final result is dashboards that graphically show the relevant information and KPIs of each department of the company.
