Why is running a legacy BI system to problematic? We live in a fast-paced, information hungry society that not only expects but demands instant and up-to-date information. In any given second in a day, 7,342 tweets are sent; 741 Instagram photos uploaded; 56,240 Google searches are carried out and 2.5 million emails sent (InternetLiveStats).

We live in a world dominated by information. In any given second, 7,342 tweets are sent, 56,240 Google searches are carried-out and 2.5 million emails sent. In fact, best estimates suggest that at least 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is produced every day (that’s 2.5 followed by an incredible 18 zeros!).
Businesses are massive generators and proprietors of this data, from personnel records and prospect lists through to debtor details and sales forecasts. The decision whether to harness and make sense of this data, can mean the difference between a business operating ‘blind’ and one that understands its position, where it’s going and how to get there.

Firms of all sizes have grasped the benefits that getting real-time insights into their operations can provide as they recognise the time saving it presents on previous data collection methods as well as providing a chance to talk about what is happening right now, rather than weeks before.
Along with demanding real-time information the other feature high on the wish list has been for easy to understand visual dashboards. Tony Bray, director of Intuitive Business Intelligence, said that demand from SMEs was stronger than ever as they looked to get a better handle on their activities.
Every business is reliant on efficient, timely access to management information, in order to make stratgeic and tactical decisions about its performance. this white paper looks at some of the issues arising from an over-reliance on spreadsheets and explores how Business Intelligence dashboards can over these issues and procde an effective way to meet the needs of all information users within an organisation.
Hampshire-based workflow solution provider ProcessFlows is both an Intuitive partner and customer. This article by Alex Scroxton, MicroScope, explains how they use Intuitive Dashboards to save thousands of pounds and win new business, too.
With more and more data being created every second in hundreds of disparate applications, and business processes becoming more tightly knitted together, the importance of ‘top-down’ business intelligence (BI) solutions that provide a clear and integrated view of what exactly is going on within a business is no longer up for debate.

Intuitive Business Intelligence Channel Development Manager, Richard Abraham, talks to Housing Technology about managing risk in social housing and how embedding the right software can make all the difference.
Risk management in social housing is becoming an important issue where governance is vital, particularly following several high-profile failures and frauds reported by the Homes and Communities Agency. However, some housing providers still think of risk management as ‘merely’ a compliance obligation or box ticking exercise, when in fact it does have considerable power to improve business performance through better decision-making and information distribution.
“By consolidating and presenting the key data, business intelligence dashboards significantly enhance the ability of every department within a housing provider to quickly identify and respond to potential risks.” Richard Abraham, Channel Development Manager, Intuitive Business Intelligence.
