SolutionInsights

Competitive, successful businesses who wish to remain so are data driven businesses.  Answers to strategic business questions, and subsequent decisions, are hidden in the data – typically in multiple, diverse systems.  Businesses need a powerful, yet easy way to connect, mine, and analyze all the data find the answers – and to gain other insights not available any other way.

Overview       

SolutionInsights is Runding’s business analytics service and product.  SolutionInsights provides analytics in an inexpensive, easy and non-burdensome way (other available tools have been either too expensive and / or too difficult and burdensome).  With Runding expertise, clients are provided data modeling, business measures creation and interactive visualizations and dashboards.  Clients can utilize ongoing analysis and business insight provided by Runding’s Solution Analysts (e.g. for monthly reporting cycles) as well as using their own in-house analysts – who can work in the SolutionInsights app or in their own data world (e.g. Excel), without having to depend on information technology staff or database administrators.

SolutionInsights DNA: How it is wired together

SolutionInsights doesn’t simply make connections; it makes smart connections via apps and bespoke tools that configure and discipline the data, permitting more extensive analysis (baselining, variance, cash flow, etc.).  Data is extracted, transformed and loaded (ETL’d) and a data model created using queries and measures.  The queries and measures set can easily be expanded to pursue new ideas and opportunities, create what-if scenarios, handle new requests, and address newly connected data.  It is also scalable – down to one user and up to an enterprise solution.
