As an Information Technology (IT) Manager or Technical Professional you know how difficult it is to stay abreast of the changes within your organisation and to accommodate end-users, executives and customers with rich, integrated solutions that will serve their needs. In many organisations, the team at large does not have a good understanding of the challenges faced by the Information Technology team. You must provide current, simple technology solutions and ensure that every user has access to the systems and information they need to collaborate and to perform day-to-day and strategic tasks.
Added to this burden is the frequently frustrating task of producing custom reports using data from diverse systems. You can purchase a reporting software package, use spreadsheets or create your own report formats and query multiple data bases, but the work is never done!
Since most organisations do not have an unlimited technology budget, the IT professional, CTO or IT director is asked to do all of this without spending a lot of money. With software upgrades, system integration challenges, user support and new technology to accommodate, it may seem as though the obstacles are too great to overcome.
With all of these challenges in the mix, how do you acquire a business intelligence tool that will:
At the strategic level, you want a solution that will leverage the valuable information contained within every legacy, best-of-breed or enterprise system within the organisation and can be easily implemented, supported and upgraded as required to accommodate the business strategy.
At the tactical level, you want to select a system that can ensure rapid response to user report requests and relieve the burden of running report queries against enterprise systems and slowing down an already overburdened infrastructure. Your end-users rarely understand the demands or requirements of custom reporting and often require changes – always at the last minute! Your team must quickly and efficiently create the algorithms, scripts or the code required to produce an accurate report, and test the report to be sure it is working correctly before it is delivered to the user or published for public consumption.
What you need is a Business Intelligence Tool and Corporate Performance Management solution to accommodate your needs and one that will satisfy the needs of other users in different roles, so that you can enable end-users to easily create most of the reports they require and create a browser-based environment that is accessible to users from within and outside the enterprise. This solution must be flexible and easy to integrate and upgrade and licensing fees must be affordable. Because ElegantJ BI is easy to integrate with enterprise applications, it ensures that your organisation can leverage its investment in existing applications and infrastructure.
With ElegantJ BI Business Intelligence Tool and Corporate Performance Management solutions, you can leverage simplicity, affordability and practicality to quickly understand results and analyse issues and to align business units and individuals users without sacrificing crucial high-level strategic functionality and features. Most importantly, it provides all of this flexibility, accessibility and power within a simple, intuitive environment that anyone can use! As an IT Manager, IT Director, CTO or technology professional, you can provide this solution to your team and to your end-users and executives and be confident that it provides the accessibility, affordability and features you need to satisfy your users today and in the future.
Now, here is the best part of the story! You can achieve all of this in an integrated environment, with access to data from enterprise systems, and it will not take your entire annual IT budget to get you there!

Today’s average end-user is more sophisticated and executives expect more out of the IT function and staff.

“I don’t have enough hands! Every day my team receives custom report requests from every corner of the company. At the same time, my executive team has developed a plan to grow the company and product line and to establish customer portals and other initiatives that require support from my technology team. If I could find a way to give our end-users the information they need without involving my technical resources, it would save my life!”
Bryan Murphy, Age 57, Technology Director, Blaylock Consumer Products
Bryan is the Technology Director for a mid-sized consumer electronics company. He started with Blaylock as a programmer and has worked his way up to a director position. Bryan has a good understanding of the various systems in the enterprise, some of which are legacy systems, and some of which are large packaged enterprise systems. He is frustrated by the constant requests for information and reports and his inability to focus on the larger picture and prepare for company growth with suitable network, data bases and software solutions. He is also challenged to provide the information his end-users and executives need since many of his systems are in ‘silo’ mode and information must be manually integrated by data dump with a lot of redundancy and errors.
In order to solve his problems and get back to his focus on the big picture, Bryan must find a solution that will provide a foundation for future growth and success and the flexibility to give Blaylock end-users the tools to produce their own reports, and analyse critical data to ensure business success. He hopes to achieve this without involving his already overburdened technical staff. Since the organisation plans to create a portal for customer communication and information, Bryan would like to select a solution that is accessible from outside the enterprise and one that is intuitive and requires little training.
The solution Bryan selects must enable every user to see and manipulate data in a way that is meaningful to them. It must also ensure fast, easy implementation and optimise total cost of ownership (TCO) and return on investment (ROI).
Bryan selected the ElegantJ BI solution to satisfy his requirements. In so doing, he was able to integrate, filter and analyse information from the various systems within the enterprise and to put the majority of the reporting and analysis requirements back in the hands of his end-users. With minimal training and implementation time, Bryan’s organisation was up and running with successful user adoption, even for those end-users with limited technical skill and analytical ability. The Blaylock executive team also uses ElegantJ BI and CPM to establish and monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics and to perform impact and sensitivity analysis to understand how and where to focus the business to achieve optimum results.
The CEO created strategy maps to align each department with the corporate strategy, and to easily analyse current business information and provide simple, intuitive reports to satisfy stakeholders and monitor business results and goals. Bryan created a personalised dashboard to suit his needs as the Technology Manager. He can view the correlation of tasks and dependencies, illustrate the impact of changes and perform sensitivity analysis so that he has a full picture of the consequences and results of corrective actions on his end-users and on the technical environs of the company.
Dashboards, alerts, impact and sensitivity analysis, balanced scorecards and other features provide Bryan and the Blaylock managers and team members with the flexibility and information required to define metrics, monitor results and make changes to processes and assignments on an ongoing basis. The organisation now uses this solution to manage performance in sales, finance, purchasing, production and many other functions. In this way, they can keep the company on track and help the team hold the line on costs and overhead.
With dynamic business analytics, personalised reporting, interactive dashboards, balanced scorecards, and flexible views and alerts, Blaylock is able to satisfy even the most complex needs and to integrate a variety of data bases and enterprise systems and tools into one comprehensive view. They can provide the most up-to-date information on competitive, market and business trends and use forecasting and predictive analysis to satisfy even the most complex requirements – all without involvement from the technology team!
