The Forest Grove team are excited to announce the introduction of our brand new business intelligence offering - Business Intelligence as a Service. Our end-to-end Business Intelligence as a service solution takes care of the deployment and management of your BI platform for a low monthly fee leaving you to focus on business outcomes, reduce IT expenditure and leverage an Enterprise data platform.
Business Intelligence as a service will save time and reduce pressure on IT resources with a solution that lets you spend more time analysing and understanding your data. Our 3 tiered service encompasses data blending/transformation, data warehousing and visualisation.
- Data Transformation
The end to-end-service will utilise the open source data analytics platform, KNIME to blend and consolidate data from source systems including your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform, social media and cloud services such as Salesforce.
- Cloud Data Warehousing
The successfully blended and structured the data is then deployed to the cloud data warehouse provider. Forest Grove have chosen Gartner’s number 1 cloud service provider, Amazon Web Services as our partner of choice due to the flexibility, scalability, ease of use and security of the service.
There’s no question that Tableau is the global market leader for Business Intelligence due to the product’s intuitive nature and integration capabilities. As a long-running Tableau Partner, Forest Grove will utilise this software to develop effective dashboards and visualisations for your organisation.
Managing Director, Murray Westphal saw the need for an end to end business intelligence service after noticing that data blending, data storage and visualisations are often written off by organisations due to the perceived magnitude of implementation and ongoing maintenance when the business size fluctuates.
