Process, Analysis and Distribution
Companies use Business Intelligence (BI) to promote valuable decision making, reduce resource expenditure, streamline the distribution of information and highlight business opportunities. Business leaders use BI to identify ineffective business processes that are in need of change.
With the BI tools provided by DGI Systems, businesses can automate the task of complex report creation and allow users to start analyzing data themselves, rather than waiting for reports. New levels of information availability help users make informed business decisions backed up by hard evidence rather than gut feelings and anecdotes.
DGI Systems provides services which focus on streamlining an organisation's abilitiy in the following key areas of Process, Analaysis and Distribution. See our services page for more information. You may also use the headings below to link to related demonstrations:

Streamlining business workflows related to reporting can save huge amounts of resource time and hence money for your business. No longer do businesses need to have staff allocating part of their week to create reports for management; the tools which DGI Systems can put in place allow scalable, reusable designs to automate the process. Reports can hold business rules and logic allowing them to make decisions for users and present findings in a logical, easy to understand format. With downloadable formats such as Word, Excel, PDF and Powerpoint, reports can be viewed with all the usual web-like features or converted for use in meetings, mailouts and more.
What is the difference between data and information? The answer is quite simple - information is data, made meaningful. Large amounts of data may provide the foundations for good decision making, but it is the organisation of that data which really counts. The tools which DGI Systems can put in place allow data to be grouped, filtered, highlighted and customized specifically to end user needs. Once the information is ready for presentation, allow it to be processed by your business rules and have key parts of the information stand out, ready for a decision to be made.
Analysis can be difficult, especially when there are large amounts of data to be processed and complex business rules to be applied. Report designs can be programmed to contain and process any number of complex business rules allowing end users to obtain refined sets of information. Users can also select which business rules to apply under different circumstances, allowing a single design to satify the requirements of many.
Distributing information can be as easy as sending an email to end users with an attachment, but what if that attachment requires a subsequent update? A central location for reports in excel spreadsheets could be useful, until security misses someone making an invalid update. So what is the solution? The answer lies with layers. Seperating the data layer (database, excel etc) from the presentation layer (report) means that end users only ever have access to view information, not modify it. Your staff could soon be accessing fully interactive, browser based reports which allow them to group, filter, drill, format and link to related information whilst leaving your base data safe from adjustment.
