Efficient Reports

Efficient Reports

Humans are limited by the speed of our eyes and fingers. No matter how well-trained and efficient your IT team may be, business intelligence reporting is faster and smarter. Going through customer receipts, storefront closing numbers, and customer feedback cards manually is possible. It’s also grossly inefficient. These are also relatively easy analytical processes when compared with the Big Data available. No matter how clever, quick, and detail-oriented your IT staff are, they are no match for the sheer bulk of data they’re expected to handle.

StarBI does not replace your IT team. However, it can take away the time-consuming legwork that mires the team’s potential productivity. StarBI is far more reliable and less prone to human error, which increases their value to IT departments and decision makers alike.

Improved Communications

Improved Communications

A system designed for ease of use is typically easier to understand than any notes or manually arranged spreadsheets. The data an IT department gathers goes out to nearly every department and decision maker in your business. Sometimes translating the IT shorthand into actionable information represents its own unique step in report preparation. This helps no one. It’s unrealistic to ask IT workers buried under stacks of data to shift their focus onto how they present information, but translating all that data into information is still a serious problem.

StarBI boosts communication by providing the same system for all relevant parties. StarBI features intuitive controls that make it easy for anyone to understand the data presented. Whether you want decision makers to have a direct line to data or you just want your IT department to generate clearer reports,StarBI offers a simple solution.

Access Control

Access Control

Controlling user access to different parts of a company’s network is an important security technique that can help IT protect important information consolidated in a data warehouse. StarBI Server ensure that individuals are only viewing the data that they specifically need to do their job, and nothing more. Not only does this limit the spread of sensitive information to where it doesn’t need to be, but it also keeps data analysis simple by filtering out irrelevant information. By only providing employees with access to the right information, IT is ensuring that users won’t get caught up wading through data that they don’t need to be analyzing.

Speed

Speed

Oftentimes, business intelligence tools take too long to produce reports or to return results from a query, and a crucial timeframe is lost. StarBI business intelligence can vastly improve a company’s efficiency. Quickly-produced insights based on real-time data lead to a speedier decision-making process, vital to a company’s business effectiveness.

StarBI is important to IT departments not only for this speed, but also for its corresponding ability to empower employees with self-service access to reporting. This means that IT is involved less and less. As end-users gain more responsibility and oversight over reporting, not only are they given greater ownership of their insights, but there is less pressure placed on the resources of the IT department to provide support.

Scalability

Scalability

Scalability addresses the ability of a business intelligence platform to scale its size and direction to fit the needs of a company. It is vital in ensuring that the right employees across a company are getting access to the right data. StarBI can be adjusted to accommodate additional users in certain given functions while still performing at a top level. A scalable tool should also be able to have additional capabilities added as needed. This allows the IT department to anticipate potential future needs.

Scalability is perhaps most important to IT departments at growing companies, or at companies that just see their responsibilities evolving and the number of users fluctuating.

Data Storage

Data Storage

The way that a company’s data is stored is vital to the success of a potential BI tool. Data storage becomes more important as the amount of data available to companies vastly increases. The more data, the greater the need of IT to have a place that can capture the information, manage it neatly, and have it ready for BI querying tools to plumb for insights. Many companies will have both structured and unstructured data coming from multiple sources, making the issue of a permanent storage location even more important.

StarBI Datamart stores the relevant data in sizable amounts so it doesn't affect the actual database . BI Analyst can refresh the data stored in Datamart whenever required. This is necessary for StarBI to get the most accurate insights from data. This also provides an additional security measure for IT to prevent data loss by backing it up in another place.
