Business Intelligence

Leverage data into actionable insight

Is Your Business Data Meaningful and Useful?

Many businesses have large amounts of information that is poorly organized and difficult to access. If your data is failing to fulfill its potential, Xentio’s business intelligence solutions will help you harness your enterprise information. Working as a collaborative partner, we see the big picture, ask the right questions and address your business challenges and questions. Then we deliver solutions that lay the foundation for a tangible competitive advantage.

BI Consulting

We provide expert business intelligence (BI) services that help you leverage data and turn it into actionable insight. Xentio works with your business teams to understand requirements and analytical needs, and then works with your IT to plan complete solutions. Our consulting covers strategic planning and business analysis and requirements gathering

Extraction, Transform, Load

ETL is the glue that connects the data warehouse to its data sources. Our ETL consultants are highly skilled in analysis of data transformational requirements, and in the implementation of ETL solutions that are optimized to populate and update the Data Warehouse.

Enterprise Reporting

After designing and building your DWH, your business users are keen to see reports and dashboards that easily visualise the data. Xentio’s analytics team can easily develop cubes and end-user reports using the industries most popular tools.

DWH Value

Data Warehouses are anything but inexpensive, which is why – unfortunately – so few enterprises have been able to implement them. Xentio does our best to work with new technologies, combined with our expertise, to reduce this cost significantly. The time of inexpensive enterprise DWH is here!

Before Xentio, we engaged four (4) other providers to design and develop our global data warehouse and reporting system. They all failed. Xentio came along and delivered - from start to finish. An amazing job, given the massive challenge our environment provided!
