  • (Remove less appropriate examples for each prospect to lighten slide) BI is not specific to any one department within the enterprise, with many applications across many functions. Here are some examples: Sales and Marketing – tracking the success of internal marketing campaigns; segmenting and profiling market members. Operations management – monitoring the movement of goods both in and out of the enterprise; identifying where delays in delivery are the cause of late payment. Finance – tracking expense by department over time, spotting anomalies. DSOs: Days’ Sales Outstanding – a measure of how efficient the organization is being at collecting payment Human resources – identifying problems in retention or absenteeism, and where there are concentrations of these problems. Manufacturing – tracking back customer complaints regarding quality to the original supplier, to address the problem fast. SSP
  • What we’re looking at here is the development process for creating an interactive dashboard. Step 1: Data Source Tier Identify your compliant data source(s). Step 2: Connectivity Tier Identify and develop your connectivity methods. Step 3: Visualization Tier Use Xcelsius point and click methodology to create visual models. Step 4: Visual Model Deploy SWF file to portals, website, PowerPoint or other publishing options. RUNTIME: You have now created a stand-alone model that connects directly to your database without passing through Xcelsius, or other application! Visual models connect directly to the data source via XML data feeds or Web services.
