Technology continues to evolve, and we are constantly looking for ways to work smarter, providing us with more quality time. However, our brains still process data at the same rate, and interpret images faster than tabular information.
We recognise this at AtoBI, and we continue to develop visual representations of data to allow the human brain to engage both sides; left-thinking where logic and analytical skills live and right-where creative and visuals preside.
If you are still looking at spreadsheets and multiple data sources, with rows and rows of data and trying to make sense of it all, then talk to us. We ensure that you can make fully informed business decisions by bringing the vast number of individual records and data sources that need to come together to enable you to see the full picture.
In today’s fast paced world customer retention has become more complex and more important for organisations due to the explosion of channels (website, online shopping, email, social, mobile, price comparison websites, web banners, traditional media,…) to engage with customers. This is compounded by customer demographics, for instance – interacting with Millennials vs Baby Boomers. At all customer touch points the customer experience must be great to retain and grow your customer base.
Customer loyalty programs are one of the areas that organisations can help drive revenue, improve customer retention, increase brand and business recognition as well as attracting new customers. AtoBI has helped deliver customer loyalty systems that include POS data interfacing, membership CRM systems, membership rewards and reporting, campaign/promotion effectiveness and store profitability.
The investment in customer loyalty programs needs to be weighted against the expected return (financial and reputation) of such systems. Customers are demanding that customer loyalty programs manage personal data in a confidential manner and that it complies at a minimum to any local data privacy legislation. With a lot of customers wanting privacy to GDPR standards introduced in Europe.

As organisations adapt to meet the demands of their customers, staff, executives, auditors, board and shareholders… the adoption of new IT systems is often at the expense of their data management strategy. This typically creates a multi-vendor IT environment with multiple and disparate data sources that weren’t originally designed to leverage other organisational data in a cohesive manner. AtoBI assists organisations with leveraging their various data sources through a cohesive data integration process. This enables organisations to fully leverage their data and gain insight into their corporate performance to meet market demands
Work Health & Safety (WH&S) compliance has strongly regulated legislation and, as such, there are mandatory compliance and risk assessments organisations must perform. Two major components of WH&S are record keeping and demonstrating compliance to the legislation. AtoBI can address each of these areas with our data management solutions. A recent example is where we have helped a large manufacturing organisation improve WHS awareness by providing a highly visual dashboard and report of WH&S incidents to their Occupational Health & Safety Officers.
Why do you need to set up or move to the cloud? There are many answers to this question, you may have a Cloud solution but are considering a move back of some or all on-premise.
Using Cloud based solutions provides flexibility, giving businesses the ability to scale up or down capacity as required.
The benefits of cloud solutions are:
Many people question whether cloud provides security for your data. Laptops are a billion-dollar business problem, not just the hardware but the cost of the data. Cloud storage gives you greater security when a loss occurs, because everything is accessed via the cloud and not locally giving you easier restoration.
On-premise implementation can also be justified just as easily, depending on the size of your business, looking to keep operating costs low, may over time show a cost saving. Security stays in-house, where there are barriers or security concerns. You are always in full control and can implement changes when you want them.
Subsequently, we also have customers on a hybrid solutions, benefiting from the costs and flexibility depending on their business requirement.
Big data simply means a large volume of data – both structured and unstructured – that business acquire daily. In reality, it’s not the amount of data that’s important, it’s what organisations do with it that matters. Big data can be analysed for insights that lead to better decisions and strategic business moves.
While we now use “big data” in daily life, gathering and storing large amounts of information/data to be analysed is ages old. In the early 2000’s analyst Doug Laney definition of big data as:
Volume. Data is collected from a variety of sources, including business transactions, social media and information from sensor or machine data. Previously storing it was a problem – but new technologies (such as Hadoop) have made it easier.
Velocity. Data streams in at an unprecedented rate and must be dealt with in a timely manner. RFID tags, sensors and smart metering are driving the need to deal with torrents of data in near-real time.
Variety. Data exists in various formats – structured, numeric data in traditional databases to unstructured text documents, email, video, audio, and financial transactions.
