One version of the truth. Governance.
Are you in charge of BI strategy?
- Feeling squeezed between what your business users want and what your team can provide?
- Are there increasing amounts of data from an ever-widening variety of channels, both internal and external?
- Do you spend too much time reconciling company data?
With data and data processes now ubiquitous in an organisation, it is important that you can create a comprehensive business view. Our point of view is that this data should be subject to some form of overarching governance, and be guided by a corporate data strategy.
Growth. ROI. The bottom line.
Are you CEO or Business Manager?
- Do you worry about how you can increase sales and improve profits?
- Are too many of your important business decisions based on gut-feel?
- How does past experience influence your future decisions?
While technology and digital have revolutionised our lives in so many ways, data — particularly big data — is changing the way businesses work. If you have a company and want to stay ahead, you’ll be excited to hear that you can improve your big strategic decisions and smaller operational decisions with the data you’ve already collected.
Personalised analytics. Advanced visualisation.
Are you the analytics expert?
- Are you struggling to collect and combine data from inside and outside your organisation?
- Do you spend too much time trying to establish ‘one version of the truth’?
- Can you quickly and easily find meaningful insights?
You know better than anyone that datasets are becoming more complex and diverse, especially as you now have to work with both internal and external data, and combine local on-premises sources with cloud-based information.
The multiple options available related to the architectures, technologies and processes of an analytics framework make it more important than ever that you make the right decisions when it comes to data integration, data warehouse and master data management.
Everything is evolving at incredible speed — data automation and code generation for data access, modelling and compliance —
including the development of dashboards and reports.
With our years of experience at Agilos of working across different industries, we have identified what we think are the new trends and developments that will impact analytics in your company in the future.
Automation is impacting virtually every industry and business process, and data analytics software is the next frontier. Automated analytics is heavily reliant on AI and machine learning. This will enable analytics experts to dramatically increase their productivity, but also help the business user run complex analysis simply by asking the right questions.
Working with analytics has always meant interacting visually. But what if you could just talk to your analytics conversationally, using Slack or Teams? This technology will bridge the gap between conversational and visual analytics and further drive analytics adoption increasing the value of your data.
When building a mobile interface for your BI app, it can be tempting to try to replicate the desktop experience, but with mobile analytics, developers need to use the limitation of the “small screen” as an opportunity to convey only critical information. Essentially, mobile Bl dashboards need to complement—not replace or exactly replicate—the experience a user has on a desktop. Some BI vendors provide technology to develop BI apps once and deploy them anywhere, including smartphones and tablets, but taking into account the nature and type of usage of each of those devices. This is the essence of responsive design.
Augmented BI uses machine learning to change how analytic content is developed and used. The technology includes other modern analytical capabilities like data preparation, data management and data science. Augmented analytics automates those processes to eliminate the need for data scientists, or at least empower users with capabilities that were only previously available to specialized data scientists. We see more and more BI technologies integrating AI. Not only will this improve the productivity of data experts and BI developers, but also empower your business users even more.
Self-Service. Insights. Action.
Are you a business user?
- Do you lose time getting access to your data, or can you pay attention to what matters: finding insights and taking actions?
- Are you trained to read, analyse and work with data?
- How has your company enabled you to do self-service analytics?
You know the answer is in the data somewhere, but it’s not always easy to find. Agilos understands that a powerful data analytics strategy should give you and your team the ability to discover insights that lead to action and change, and that everyone should have the ability and opportunity to use the data to drive results.
