Data analytics tools are like a superhero's utility belt. Just as a superhero needs different tools to overcome various challenges, businesses need data analytics tools to unlock the full potential of their data. With the right tools at their disposal, businesses can harness the power of their data to make informed decisions and drive growth.

But data analytics tools are not just a one-time solution. They act as a continuous monitoring system that provides real-time updates and alerts businesses to potential issues before they become major problems. It's like having a superhero's spider-sense that enables businesses to quickly respond to changes in the market and make strategic moves to stay ahead of the competition.

In today's fast-paced business environment, data analytics tools are no longer a luxury, but a necessity. They enable businesses to uncover hidden insights, optimize their operations, and gain a competitive edge.

What are BI Solutions?

Business Intelligence (BI) solutions are software applications used to analyze, visualize, and present business data for decision-making. Popular BI tools include Tableau, Power BI, QlikView, MicroStrategy, SAP BusinessObjects, IBM Cognos Analytics, and Looker.

These tools provide users with the ability to access and analyze large amounts of data from various sources, and create interactive visualizations and reports to gain insights and make informed decisions.

What is DataGenie?

DataGenie is a Gartner recognized end-to-end augmented analytics tool that is specifically designed for business users. It provides a user-friendly interface that makes it easy for non-technical users to perform complex data analysis tasks without requiring any prior knowledge of data science or programming.

By automating the process of anomaly detection, data exploration, forecasting and scenario planning, DataGenie saves businesses valuable time and resources that would otherwise be spent on manual investigations. It empowers business users to make informed decisions by providing real-time insights through its user-friendly story cards, which present all the necessary details at a glance.

With an impressive 86% reduction in discovery time, DataGenie enables businesses to stay ahead of the competition by continuously monitoring key business metrics and alerting users to any unusual activity. By doing so, it helps businesses identify the root cause of any issues and take prompt action to address them.

How is DataGenie different from other BI solutions?

Imagine you are a gold miner and you have two tools: a map and a metal detector. The map (like BI solutions) shows you where to look for gold, but you have to read and understand it before you can start digging. Sometimes you might interpret the map wrong and end up digging in the wrong spot.

The metal detector (like DataGenie) automatically beeps when it senses gold nearby, so you don't have to think or study anything beforehand. You can just follow the beeps and collect the gold as you go.

Similarly, BI solutions require users to analyze the data, interpret it, and then dig for the insights they need. It can be time-consuming and may not always lead to valuable insights. 

Whereas, DataGenie automatically detects important insights and presents them to users in a prioritized and easy-to-understand format so you can focus on “collecting gold instead of studying maps”.

See only insights that matter

In general BI Solution's rule-based system tends to generate a high volume of alerts, overwhelming users and causing frustration. Its lack of autonomy means users must manually filter through the noise to find valuable insights.

We understand that too much information can be overwhelming and time-consuming. That's why our insight ranking model takes into account factors such as correlation, seasonality, and intrinsic business impact to rank all the anomalies and generate a concise feed page of the most important insights.

You no longer need to ask any questions or perform any analysis to stay on top of insights. Our ranking model is continually optimized based on user feedback and can be customized to based on your needs.
