ALPHARETTA, Ga., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Polaris Associates Inc., released ORBIT Analytics 8.0, a major new upgrade of their data visualization and business intelligence application suite. ORBIT (Operational Reporting and Business Intelligence Technology) Analytics is an enterprise reporting, analysis and dash-boarding product created for use with any data source. The newly released version, ORBIT Analytics 8.0 takes a new approach to data analytics and interpretation for businesses, making data from all departments easy to visualize, from the C-suite to the individual business users.
"We conducted comprehensive research and sat down with individual users and asked what they needed in an analytics tool," said Ravi Jasti, Chief Technology Officer at ORBIT Analytics. "The message was clear: they want to build their own reports, they want it to be easy, and they want to visualize the data. That's what ORBIT Analytics does best—it makes your data tell a story."
Jasti believes that self-service analytics can make businesses more efficient. Companies process billions of bytes of data each year, but many admit they fail to use the data properly, leaving opportunities and money on the table. Business intelligence and data visualization software allows companies to make fact-based decisions, but Jasti says not all software lives up to the expectation.
"We see many companies where data is kept in department-specific silos," Jasti said. "Or the employees who need it have to wait for IT to build a report just to be able to use it. We wanted to see what would happen if we empower every user to get the data they need, in seconds."
The result was a robust new platform for ORBIT Analytics that lets users build drag-and-drop dashboards and reports from multiple data sources. Pre-built integrations with ERP and Cloud applications such as Oracle, Microsoft, Salesforce, and Taleo—allow users to draw from data anywhere in their company for smart analytics and streamlined operational reporting.
"Our goal with ORBIT Analytics 8.0 was to deliver self-service capabilities while maintaining strong data governance," Jasti said. "ORBIT Analytics can be used for sales, operations, planning, analysis, and research. The uses are endless."
ORBIT Analytics has positioned the technology to work across many industries, such as healthcare, retail, manufacturing, financial services, transportation, and public sector, to assist in making smart business decisions.
