Business Intelligence for Retail

Large Japan Retail Chain Improves Timeliness and Accessibility of Crucial Data for Sales and Store Managers

A large retail chain in Japan selected the ElegantJ BI business intelligence solution and services to integrate Point of Sale (POS), and data warehouse data across all locations and enable the business to generate and refresh cubes to view and analyze daily data between the time their stores closed and the time they opened the next day. The objective was to reduce the time required to create a cube and support clear, concise presentation and visualization of data and flexible reporting needs, so that sales staff and store managers could assume greater control over sales, ordering and distribution.

The ElegantJ BI data warehouse and BI consulting team designed data architecture with incremental update capabilities to ensure a better refresh and update cycle time. Browser-based delivery of data ensured a zero footprint and faster delivery of data to users without the need for plug-ins or desktop components. ElegantJ BI cost-effective licensing and ease of implementation and integration allowed the business to retrieve key business data from all operational systems for presentation, charts, OLAP analysis and reports, and ensured secure, appropriate user access and data protection.
