Business Intelligence

Business Intelligence is a buzzword that can be simply summed up as extracting, organizing and analyzing data in a structured way that gives any organization the information to make more informed business decisions. ITCube Solutions has been developing BI Solutions for many years - taking data that exists in disparate systems in a variety of different formats, cleansing it, transforming it, centralizing it and developing the tools to turn it into meaningful information.

Data Warehousing and Data Marts

A central repository for high quality corporate (data warehouse) or departmental (data mart) data will give you an accurate view of the information it represents and form the basis of much of your critical management information. We deliver high quality, agile data warehouses, with rapid deployment using the very latest in data warehouse best practice and our data integration accelerators. We also use appliance-based solutions for a lower TCO.

Self Service BI

Typically, businesses change more rapidly than the business processes and systems that underpin them can adapt. As a result information can be locked away within the fabric of the business preventing important insight and decisions from being made. Self service BI provides a key to unlocking the real potential of your business information by giving the decision makers themselves the means to extract, transform, analyze and create rich information systems that support informed decision making.
