Problems with existing “BI and Analytics Platforms”

business analytics apps

…especially for the small business owners and startups.

  1. You need to understand the word “Platform” first and in this case it is definitely not “a raised level surface on which people or things can stand.”
  2. Well, if you don’t then you need someone who not only understands“Platform” but also “BI and Analytics Platform” and how they work with various data sources. Now a days they are known as “Data Analysts”,“Data Scientists”, “SQL guys”, etc. They are very smart hence expensive to hire and retain.
  3. If you don’t have someone like above, you have to learn the “BI and Analytics Platform” on your own and figure out, which visualizations work best to answer your questions. Also figure out data connectors for your databases and pre-process the data on your own. It goes without saying that considerable time and energy is required to do this. But let’s assume you did it. Congratulations!
  4. Now if you decide to publish the dashboard / visualizations outside your company, for your clients or investors, you suddenly realize that you need to pay more to do that. You get that sinking feeling and are really trapped as you have invested heavily in so called “BI and Analytics Platform”already.

Well, things don’t have to be this way.

Analytics is the process of discovering and communicating meaningful patterns in your data and for that…

  1. You just need to know the questions you are looking answers for and where the data lies in your organisation.
  2. You don’t need to hire Data Analysts, Data Scientists or SQL guys.
  3. And you definitely don’t have to worry about recurring licence cost.

To achieve above vision we created BA Apps.

BA Apps offer you beautiful, ready to use “Business Analytics Apps” in a fraction of cost and time compared to typical BI / Analytics Platforms.

Business Analytics Apps tell stories with data, answer critical business questions, and help you make the right decisions at the right time.

We are NOT a self-service BI and Analytics platform. We create bespoke analytics apps, based on your requirements. The apps are generally focused only on only one business process of Sales, Marketing, Logistics, etc. Since we keep our scope limited, our apps are much more effective in terms of delivering analytics. For the same reason, they are cost effective and faster to implement.
