Building IT right the first time!

Business Intelligence

The power BI and analytic solutions make businesses perform smarter, faster and more efficiently.  As the adage goes, if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.  With intelligent BI, we can now not only react quickly to changes we see in our business, we can predict and forecast how to manage moving forward based on intelligent indicators.  BI provides a dynamic view of  how the many facets of your business is performing and insights on the major factors that influence performance.   BI provides the insight for fast, actionable intelligence about customers, suppliers, distributors, partners and competitors.   With the easily accessible, cost effective BI solutions available with your Office and SQL Server platforms, no business can afford not to have BI solutions in today’s competitive “real time” global marketplace.

DSI is continually researching, evaluating and testing Business Intelligence and analytics technologies including Microsoft BI, Oracle BI, Business Objects, Tableau and Advizor.
