What is Business Intelligence?

Business Intelligence, offered referred to as "BI", traditionally provided a summarised view of the most important information in your business and then allows users to drill into details.  Modern BI also allows users to collaborate with each other, in real-time.

What is FileMaker?

FileMaker is a wholly owned subsidiary of Apple - they offer a FREE database app for iOS and allow non-programmers to build business apps for iOS (native & web), Android (web only), Mac (native & web) & PC (native & web).  Oh yeah - and I think they're totally awesome !!

What do you mean by "non-programmer"

No hate mail please - just politely disagree with me in the comments section.

When I say "non-programmer" I mean someone who likes technology but haven't moved much beyond Excel.

To be more specific here are my groupings (tip of the hat to Alan for his great article).

Computer Scientist / Software Engineer = Great a math, building computers out of paper-clips, oh and getting your computer to work - no matter what the problem.  Chit-chat often isn't "their thing" and their code works but it aint pretty!

Programmer = Their code is pretty.

Developer = Communication and people skills are paramount - they build solutions to solve real-world problems. They might write a bit of code and they think it is pretty (but just between you and me ... it isn't).

Excel Users = 

Don't just need to know that stuff works, they have to prove it. Communication and people skills are desirable but they'd probably prefer to be solving math problems rather than chewing the fat with business people.  Their code works but it may not be pretty - just has to get the job done.

 

What is the difference between Online and Offline mode?

What is "Washed Data"?

If you would like us to create a Proof Of Concept but you don't want us to see how much money you're making (which is fair enough) then you can simply "wash" the data.  This is a simple process where you open your data in excel and use a random number function to change the "real" data into "fake" data.  It makes no difference to us, we are only interested in the data format.

Similarly, if it is easy for you, a sample file that looks like your data will do the trick nicely too.  However the benefit of washed data over sample data is that the format of manually created sample data is sometimes slightly different to the real data.  So when it comes time to swap in the live data - you may hit problems with conflicts in your data format.

What do you mean by "Company DNA"?

We can create a single multidimensional algorithm that will calculate the performance of every single entity in your business.  You can have one KPI for your whole company and then allow users to drill into it for details on their own KPI and, importantly, see exactly how their individual KPI contributes to the overall Company KPI.   This is a very powerful tool that allows executives to communicate their vision and strategies to every single person in the organization and be able to see how every employee is performing, progressing and contributing to the overall company goal, vision and strategies.  Indeed the same can be said for any business entity like products, brands, customers, suppliers, materials, consumables, equipment, time, money, quality and quantities of any unit of measure.  In fact anything in your business can be tracked - even things like "employee attitude".  Want proof?  Ask us about a project where we tracked "employee attitudes" using a "climate survey".

Of course the million dollar question is "how do we create a hierarchy of KPI's ... how can you add 'employee attitude' to 'sales revenue' and show any kind of reasonable comparison"?

To answer that question we'll need to talk to you about your company DNA.
