Business Intelligence and Visual Analytics 


Organizations today collect huge amounts of diverse data through its operations. This data is valuable as it can provide information for better decision making. Hence, there is a critical requirement to process this complex data in a timely manner and is available to all users. Unfortunately, traditional Business Intelligence systems have difficulty in performing the fast analytical process¬ing needed to deliver instantaneous insights. Decision makers become frustrated because it takes too long – or is even impossible – to get the reports they need to answer questions quickly. Additionally, there is ever growing requests for data, ad hoc analyses and one-off reports. Visual Analytics combines an easy-to-use, dynamic interface with powerful in-memory technology. It enables all types of users to visually explore data, execute analysis on data of any size within minutes or seconds, understand what the data means, and deliver the results quickly wherever needed via Web reports and mobile devices. There are few innovative organizations in India who have already adopted this and is gaining tremendously like ICICI Bank, Vodafone etc.
