Business Intelligence - What is it?

The Business Intelligence Competency covers SQL Server in concert with Office and SharePoint. It helps you deliver Business Intelligence across your organization through the familiar Office user experience and provides a rich set of platform capabilities to ensure credible, consistent data that support today’s analysis, data warehousing, and Big Data needs.
What we do
We take your data possibly from a myriad of sources and optimise it for analysis and reporting. This data can be disseminated via Microsoft Reporting Services or SharePoint and using SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services we build comprehensive, analytic solutions for predictive analysis and interactive exploration of aggregated data.

Why use GSD?

We understand traditional Online Transactional Processing Systems very well. Interestingly the data designs for running these ERP systems (and your business efficiently) are not necessary the best designs for reporting. We understand how to create Data warehouse repositories or copies of this data that are designed around reporting and analytics. Using familiar Microsoft Office tools such as Excel and SharePoint we are able to deliver powerful solutions. Solutions that provide users of all levels, with new insights, compelling reports and analytical applications that can be easily shared and collaborated with colleagues.

The three core entities to describe Business Intelligence are:
SQL Server
Excel
SharePoint

Excel
