Everything at a glance: Dashboards and reporting for decision makers
In what direction should innovation be driven? What gaps in the market are most lucrative? Which products will ensure our success over the next few years? Business Intelligence (BI) reporting and analytics tools can find the answers to such questions and also form the basis for creating quarterly and annual reports.
Using a graphical and interactive user interface, Pentaho Dashboards provide business users with the required key performance indicators for analysing and increasing company performance. Reports can be created using the web-based Dashboard Designer, which also supports drag and drop management.
Sophisticated and visually appealing Dashboards can also be realised using Pentaho CTools. Dashboards, ad hoc queries and OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) are common descriptive analytics tools. In the past, many companies have invested considerable sums of money in these traditional forms of Business Intelligence. But there was a noticeable change in the use of analytics: Development in the direction of Predictive Analytics (What is going to happen?) and Prescriptive Analytics (What must we do to ensure that a certain thing happens?) significantly gained traction with companies.
