Solutions for data critical businesses


Sandton, South Africa: Innovations in business intelligence technologies like 3D GIS, IP Systems and satellite photography may have made life simpler for representation of business critical data but it has also multiplied the technological complexities of gathering information and data integration by leaps and bounds. And every organisation looks for simplicity not for complexity. Addressing these concerns Edge Evolve has launched the software suite DataAssist Spatial Module, to bring relief to data critical businesses.

DataAssist Spatial Module application is a BI component, business analysis and decision support application. Its suite of visualisation, analysis, printing and reporting tools helps companies enhance their investment by combining mission critical business, demographic, lifestyle and financial data. Traditional BI technology reporting and analytical methods fall short of delivering spatial insight. Tabular reports and pie charts for example cannot effectively depict large sets of information (i.e. multiple dimensions) in OLAP cubes. But with the specialised GIS functionality equipped spatial assist customers across multiple industries can now effectively synthesise detailed data into information and present this content in an understandable manner.

With DataAssist BI, all the business users right from managers to the operational staff, frontline executives to back office support staff get the power to define ad hoc reports through predefined user profiles.
