KPIGuard™ Key Benefits and Business Value

The general process of converting raw data into insightful information for enterprise decision-makers is normally achieved through business intelligence (BI) development projects. With the growing needs for self-service, agility, real-time delivery and sophisticated data source access at all organizational levels, enterprise-class BI projects are increasingly demanding in terms of effort, cost and complexity.

KPIGuard virtualizes and unifies disparate static, dynamic and streaming data assets in an automated continuous integration process that delivers insightful information to decision-makers in near real-time. These core structural characteristics allow KPIGuard users to derive the immediate following benefits:

  • Higher ROI, Faster Time-To-Value (TTV)—Get your BI performance dashboard applications up and running in hours, or even minutes, instead of months!
  • Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)—Eliminate initial and recurring costs associated with integration, maintenance, change and development projects
  • High Agility and Real-Time Support—Quickly adapt management dashboards and scorecards to changing business requirements and priorities without the need to spend time or money on programming work. Moreover, base decisions and projections not only on historical, but also on live, near real-time factual information
  • Open, Self-Service Analytics—Enable business analysts to configure their own data pipelines without technical IT intervention. Also, enable end-users to use any information visualization tool that best fits their needs, skills and budgets, including Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Excel, SAP Lumira, Oracle OBIEE, Tableau, MicroStrategy, IBM Cognos, R and even ad-hoc SQL. This helps ensure complete BI adoption and full accessibility to analytical capabilities across the organization
  • Governance and Security—Replace scattered spreadsheets, inconsistent error-prone data manipulation processes, ungoverned shared data repositories, isolated point solutions and complex data processing applications with a single easy-to-use enterprise-class software that additionally integrates and unifies governance and security. Increase stakeholder trust by providing confidentiality, integrity, reliability and traceability
  • Quick Wins and Lower Risk—Implement incrementally through short iterations and quickly deliver concrete and visible end results. Reduce project risks by eliminating work complexity

KPIGuard provides a highly customizable enterprise-level end-to-end management dashboards solution, with optional adaptive automation, in just hours and at less than 30% of the total cost of any traditional business intelligence (BI) solution.
