Business Analytics

Orbit is a self-service business analytics solution. It empowers you to analyze and interpret your data – while maintaining the tight data governance controls that your IT department requires.

Users have more data at their disposal than ever.

Companies that leverage business analytics can achieve benefits such as increased product innovation, customer satisfaction, operational efficiencies, and revenue. According to a Harvard Business Review study, 76% of managers found superior analytics helped them improve their planning and forecasting. Meanwhile, 82% of managers found that sound analytics solutions significantly improved their decision-making processes.

Companies are turning to analytics solutions to pull all of their data together and present it in formats that are easy to understand and explore. However, you still might rely on incomplete facts when making important business decisions. For example, your analytics platform might not connect with all of your data sources – making it impossible for you to perform descriptive analytics that takes advantage of the wealth of historical data residing in your applications.

Also, many analytics solutions are so complex that you need to get help from IT whenever you want to extract and analyze your data. This often results in decision-making delays, as you wait to access data that can improve your business processes.

Orbit breaks down data silos, unifying information from any data source to help you generate reports, dashboards, and visualizations. This tight multi-dimension, multi-data-source integration provides meaningful business analytics that allow you to dive deeper into your data, quickly spot trends, and identify opportunities.
