Cloud (Hosted) Business Analytics

element61 are firm believers and early adopters of hosted Business Intelligence & Performance Management solutions. We believe that in current BI & CPM initiatives too much effort, time and money is lost in setting up
(and maintaining)
the environments
, while focus of management should be on data definition, data modeling, user requirements, data quality and analysis of information. Software-as-a-Service will also dramatically change the face of the BI & CPM industry.

Hosted/on demand Business Intelligence & Performance Management solutions take away the hurdle of :
  • Selecting the right hardware
  • Investing in the right hardware
  • Selecting & investing in the right Operating System
  • Selecting & investing in the right Database Management System (RDBMS)
  • Installation of OS & RDBMS software
  • Installation of the BI or CPM software
  • Configuration of the BI or CPM software
  • Integration with OS & RDBMS
  • Security setup and maintenance
  • Performance monitoring & tuning
  • Support for keeping the systems "running"
  • Patching of software
  • Upgrading & migration of software & content

Business Analytics solutions can in this way be offered as subscription based, platform services.

We proactively invest in pioneering in this area, regardless of the BI & CPM
technologies you want to use. These can be the leading Business Analytics & Performance Management suites or pure-play hosted BI & CPM solutions ( like Birst , Pivotlink, Adaptive Planning ... ). Also hardware, operating system and RDBMS can be hosted by your organisation and managed by us, hosted by a dedicated hosting company, or based on components "in the cloud".

in ways to more
quickly deliver on the promise of Business Analytics &
Performance Management.
