Businesses who want to unlock value from their data are the target for a new business package launched today. The Insight Accelerator combines two kinds of software and a consultancy service that empowers business to gain insight from their data in less than two weeks, enabling them to get the edge over their competition.
Gaining business insight from their data enables companies to stay profitable, competitive and to deliver relevant customer service. Yet, the complexity of current IT environments, with data stored in disparate systems, means businesses are often unable to get a clear view of the data available to them, let alone to transform that view into a coherent platform for decision-making. Furthermore a shortage of skilled people often results in an inconsistent ad-hoc approach to business analytics and ultimately a lack of trust in the results.
The Insight Accelerator offers an IT-friendly solution to these problems. It adopts an agile approach enabling users to unlock value from data at the early stages of the project as well as adapting and extending incrementally to keep pace with business change. Customers get a single, global view of their business, which arms people with all the information they need to make data-driven decisions.
The Insight Accelerator helps business users produce the reports they need to make data-driven decisions, without training and for a range of devices. For IT, the Insight Accelerator dramatically simplifies the process of managing data, enabling them to respond to changing business needs fast.
The Insight Accelerator combines software from WhereScape, an agile data warehouse automation solution, with Antivia's Decision Point, which allows even non-programmers to create stunning interactive dashboards, and a consultancy service. This triad of software and services means the Insight Accelerator will deliver businesses a fully documented, maintainable Data Warehouse and suite of dashboards easily and quickly.
"This partnership and the launch of the Insight Accelerator will bring speed and agility to organisations in an industry plagued by slow delivery times," said Miriam Cook, General Manager - UK, Ireland & Channel Islands at WhereScape "WhereScape's RED application will provide the behind-the-scenes power needed to pull together a fast and solid data warehouse with robust data governance to run DecisionPoint™ dashboards on, so business users get timely access to information they can trust."
Mark Hudson, CEO of Antivia, said: "WhereScape shares our view that information should be distributed throughout organisations - fast and easily. The combination of WhereScape RED and Antivia's DecisionPoint™ does this by simplifying the process of transforming disparate data into business insight. The Insight Accelerator reduces the need for specialists and enables organisations to keep pace with their business users' relentless appetite for new information."
