According to Gartner, the business world is “rapidly heading towards a world of analytics everywhere.”

The time to leverage relevant data is now and IT feels the brunt of turning disparate, ever-expanding data into meaningful, trustworthy information. The task is overwhelming and the need is great.

DFT’s self-service approach to business analytics enables you to access the information you need, when and where you need it. It turns information into actionable insight, allowing you to see patterns in your data so you and your business users make decisions based on fact – not speculation.

But where do you start? What’s your BI plan for delivering accurate, measurable, data that is easy for all to use and share?

DFT knows the way.

We’ve mapped out the path to BI Nirvana where Business Analytics positively influences the course of the company. We enable business users to view, consume and react to data that influences their daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly decisions. This turns information into insight. It highlights patterns, trends and discrepancies for easy identification and improved responses that positively impact your day-to-day business.

Sound business decisions necessitate accurate, current information – not estimations.

Location Intelligence

BI tools excel at extracting the who, what and when aspects of data, but are lost when it comes to the where. Ultimately, location ties all other data points together.

Spot patterns, risks and opportunities and give your executives a complete view of the company’s operations.
