Satsuma's Next Generation BI an Industry Hit

Forget Generation Y – Generation ‘BI’ is the one you need to keep an eye on, especially if your business depends on accurate and timely information to make vital decisions.

Sitting right at the forefront of the next generation in business intelligence systems is Satsuma Solutions – an innovative and inspired IT solutions company. Satsuma’s latest offering, Qlikview, provides easy-to-use access to all the information you need to make powerful tactical and strategic decisions – fast.

QlikView was showcased at an industry breakfast seminar where managing director Matthew Cunneen put it through its paces for attendees representing a variety of top tier financial services organisations. Guest speaker, Mark Smith, General Manager of IT for Aon Asia Pacific, also shared his organisation’s experience with implementing and using QlikView.

It is widely accepted that traditional BI systems are time consuming and unwieldy, requiring a dedicated IT team and complicated processes that only result in getting answers to a limited and specific set of questions. And if you don’t get the answers you need, or if they raise a whole new set of questions, the process has to start all over again. The danger is that while you’re busy gathering data, the competition is already making its move.

The clear advantage of QlikView is its ‘in memory’ analytic capability that is not reliant on traditional (and expensive) BI infrastructure. Essentially, it is simple to set up, easy to use, and provides decision makers across the entire organisation with the information they need, when they need it. ‘We help businesses to deal with the issues they face in performing and competing today. Our BI work with QlikView is all about recognising that people at all levels and across all departments need to be able to access information at a time that’s relevant to them. They need a tool to help guide future decisions, not just a view on what has already happened,’ says Cunneen. And indeed, Satsuma’s clients, ranging from automotive to manufacturing, financial services to FMCG are seeing the benefits that QlikView can deliver, first-hand.

Satsuma Solutions is about as far from a traditional IT solutions company as you can get. It operates on the philosophy that IT solutions are just one part of the entire business solution package – an unusual perspective in the IT industry. Satsuma’s approach is to look at what a business needs from the point of view of the end user, and then to create the solutions that make it possible. This philosophy, together with the impressive capabilities of QlikView, is providing Satsuma’s clients with some enviable results.

Not only did the breakfast seminar offer the perfect opportunity to find out first-hand how QlikView can benefit business, it also offered fantastic networking for attendees, many of whom left eager to take Satsuma up on their special trial offer to see QlikView in action within their own organisations.

In today’s competitive marketplace, an organisation’s ability to be responsive and make intelligent decisions can have an enormous impact on its success and where it is positioned in the industry. So all that remains is to ask yourself where you want your business to be.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
