Technology

Business Intelligence (BI) is the analysis and reporting of data to facilitate better decision-making.

Software and techniques in this field are sophisticated, and this sophistication has come at a price, in both money and effort. This has put the practical benefits of BI beyond the reach of many corporate budgets: small and medium enterprises, or individual departments within larger entities.

Open Source in the Cloud, at the Speed of Business

Recent trends create an opportunity for DASHbay to lower the price point and shorten timelines to deliver effective BI to its customers:

  • open source BI tools are available, eliminating license barriers and greatly lowering costs
  • cloud computing allows the prefabrication and instantaneous deployment of solution stacks, facilitating rapid starts to BI projects
  • agile development methods create the expectation of rapid, iterative delivery of small incremental pieces of the solution

DASHbay is focused on Agile BI using open source tools in cloud deployments. We set up cloud-based server deployments built from carefully chosen open-source software components. The results, executed in the cloud, can be integrated into your existing web applications, wherever they run.
