Business Intelligence Services

Business Intelligence is the use of timely and accurate information used to make informed decisions. This will typically include a broad category of applications and technologies for gathering, storing, analysing, and providing access to data. Generally, activities include decision support, query and reporting, online analytical processing, statistical analysis, forecasting, and data mining.

Information Portals
E-intelligence portals can give coordinated access to information through a single point

Major features of utilising an e-intelligence portal are:

  • Single point of access for all information by employees, partners, suppliers and customers regardless of location, method of connection and device used
  • Accessibility via individual security clearance
  • Tailored to specific requirements of an organisation
  • Single portal allows re-use of new reports shared within the organisation

The major benefits include:

  • Browser look and feel
  • Access to information from anywhere (subject to security restrictions) including from mobile devices, PDAs and anywhere with Internet access
  • Common access point reduces training and allows integration with other internal systems such as Intranet, Sharepoint or internal applications
  • Seamless connection to Business Intelligence Information
  • Provides planners and managers with the information they need to use business resources effectively.


Information is the life blood of a company; whether its information on customers, accounts or service. Data should flow, connect and allow easy analysis of situations, trends and growth. If data is in the wrong format, wrong location or out of date, its value is almost removed.
