“Over the years I have worked with and implemented several business software packages. None have excited me more than BOARD, with its flexibility to adapt to the individuality of a business or the simplicity to manage in-house. bi5’s understanding, commitment, design and implementation in combining our operational and financial data via ‘single point of entry’ with ‘Excel’ like functionality makes roll-out a breeze. I believe the combination of Bi5 and BOARD are an Asset to any business’ success”

FAQs

To many people, particularly software vendors, Business intelligence means attractive graphs and charts. But to us it is much more than that. It is a process by which we use technology to integrate and analyse current and historical data for the purpose of improving your strategic/fact-based decision making to provide you with a competitive advantage.
Every organisation has a variety of different software systems that perform important but specific and specialised purposes. The problem is they generally operate independently of each other. The data sets they collect are in separate silos, making any integrated data analysis and reporting an often slow and manual process. A business intelligence platform integrates and summarises only relevant data from these separate systems to provide a more complete view of what is happening in a business. A BI platform also allows for easy ‘what-if’ analysis, scenario planning and modelling and other BI applications.
The most successful and fastest growing businesses in the world couldn’t operate without BI systems.

For example, one of the most successful apparel retailers in the world relies on BI data to understand what is happening in its global business. Data is loaded from its 8000+ retail stores across the globe every 15 minutes and sales trends are analysed from many different perspectives. One of the biggest costs for retailers is floor space so if articles aren’t selling, they need to move them, reduce the price or replace them. Bi software integrates data sources and provides an analytics platform for business insights like trends, impacts of weather, promotions, advertising etc. etc. With big data, without business intelligence tools, this level of data analytics couldn’t be performed easily, making it very difficult to manage such a complex global operation.
Data visualization is a way to present business intelligence data. Well-designed visuals give managers a picture of their key indicators, and allow them to quickly and easily identify those areas that are not performing to the planned level. When problems are identified, a good BI solution will allow users to drill into the relevant lower level data, within the single BI platform/interface, to analyse the problem.
Can you afford not to implement a BI solution to optimise your business performance? There are many different options in the market for BI solutions to suit every business size and requirements. At bi5 our philosophy is to think broad, start small, and deliver quickly. The key is to identify the key drivers in your business, find the data sources that define them, and then present the data in a meaningful way. With a more complete BI solution you can then adjust the drivers and test the likely outcomes of possible scenarios
In simple terms, an ERP system collects the enterprise raw data, whereas Business Intelligence software performs data analytics and provides dashboards and other interfaces to present that data in ways that make it easily understood and allows users to identify actionable opportunities.

An ERP system is a transaction processing system which manages the day to day administrative operations of an organisation. A BI system extracts the relevant data from the ERP system, integrates it with relevant data from other transactional systems like CRM, HR and external data to allow users to analyse the overall performance of the business.
