Benefits of BI

BI Tools

There is a wide range of business intelligence tools and concepts that our expert consultants at Stratosphere can get you familiar with. BI tools are a combination of data analysis applications and business reporting tools but over time, they've evolved to include an assortment of functionalities:

Online Analytical Processing (OLAP). OLAP allows a user to extract and filter certain pieces of data from different points of view such as a marketer wanting to look at sales of a specific product from a specific month. Businesses can then use these pieces of data, compare it with another time-period or product and make marketing decisions based on differences in revenue.


Cloud-based/Software as a Service (SaaS) BI. Cloud BI applications are hosted and stored on a virtual network (i.e., the internet) or are deployed outside of a company's firewall. These types of BI tools are most commonly utilized to store dashboards, key performance indicators, and other analytic information.

Popular Cloud BI Solutions:

Extract, Transform, Load (ETL). ETL is a type of data integration process that is most commonly used to build a data warehouse. Data is initially taken from a source system, converted into format that can be analyzed by a user(s), and is then stored onto a data warehouse. ETL tools fall under categories such as: incumbent batch, cloud native, open-source, and real-time.

Popular ETL Solutions:

Dashboards & Visualizations. Dashboards serve as a place where charts, graphs, and other types of visual presentations are extracted and stored. Businesses can use these visual aids to better understand KPIs and business performance.

Popular Dashboard BI Solutions:

Data Mining. Data mining is the concept of finding and identifying patterns within large sets of data to predict future outcomes. Businesses can utilize BI data mining tools to predict revenues and make decisions to increase ROI and achieve financial goals.
