Business intelligence can be defined as a set of business processes designed to garner and analyze business information. Unlike the offshore alternatives, our business intelligence services teams are based in our google-esque” centers in the U.S.A. Rural Sourcing’s innovative onshore model allows you to outsource your business intelligence without dealing with the challenges of different languages, time-zones, and contexts as well as threats to data and IP. These centers are no more than two time zones away, and while they might not be within your buildings, they’re within our borders.
This is what business intelligence represents, the ability to not just look at a specific detail of business operations, but tie in key information from each angle into an overall whole that can allow for real insights and predictions for improving business performance, not least through Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
With proper data management techniques and the right software, it’s possible to provide a single, robust business intelligence framework which makes enterprise information readily available to executives, managers, and employees—even customers and business partners.
Real-time data can be accessed and connected through integrations with various third-party applications such as Google Drive, Salesforce, Oracle, Microsoft Excel, SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics, and much more.
While the predictions and advice derived from business analytics requires data science professionals to analyze and interpret, one of the goals of BI is that it should be easy for relatively non-technical end users to understand, and even to dive into the data and create new reports.
