    Today, there may be real-time or near real-time availability of data in say three different systems, but they may not talk to each other. Thus, important customer signals are being missed in the ever-increasing amounts of data. Gaining visibility and reducing complexities transcends merely applying technology in silos. Making real-time decisions requires an optimal blend of predictive analytics from multiple data sources.

  • Customer Engagement

    Firms that want to be proactive in reaching out to customers must analyze a great deal more information than ever before. The 'voice of the customer' is useless unless you are ready to take action. Real-time listening across channels may identify customer interactions - across technology platforms - that can lead to real-time decisions on taking action. The voice of the customer comes in different forms - and ends up generating volumes of quantitative and qualitative data.

  • Mobility

    Mobile access pairs naturally with your analytics, social and cloud strategies to provide an 'anytime, anywhere' element to making real-time business decisions. Mobility is a key component to completing your real-time engagement model. Viewed in a silo, mobility is not much more than a nifty gadget. When part of a connected analytics strategy, this a-z approach is changing the way business is done across the value chain - collaborative, distributed and virtualized.




IBM (NYSE: IBM) Business Analytics and Optimization Services draws on Mindstream's deep expertise in vertical industries, research, mathematics and information management. We help clients both improve the speed and quality of business decisions while better understanding the consequences and business outcomes of those decisions. The emergence of new smarter systems, which are interconnected, paired with the streaming of real time information, is presenting organizations with a unique opportunity to transform decision-making. In an exciting piece of recent research, the IBM Institute of Business Value surveyed 900 business and IT executives from 70 countries. The research identified nine levers that differentiate top performing organizations from their competitors. It also highlights how these levers work together to amplify the value delivered by analytics. The study also uncovers that analytic implementation strategies need to support business objectives, and the technology in place needs to support the analytics strategy. The IBM Big Data @ Work survey confirms that most organizations are currently in the early stages of big data planning and development efforts, with the majority focused either on understanding the concepts (24 percent) or defining a roadmap related to big data (47 percent). However, 28 percent of respondents are in leading-edge organizations that are implementing big data pilots, proofs of concepts or have already implemented big data solutions.

Talvis Savant iPhone app that can submit a query to Essbase by asking a question or sending a text based question. It's like 'Siri' for Essbase. The query results can be returned as text and simply spoken to you. They will also appear in table and graph formats. Additional data points can then be added to modify the results set.

Savant is voice activated. Simply ask a question, and Savant takes it from there! You also have the option of typing in your question or selecting a prior question from your favorites. Here's how it works:

NUANCE VOICE RECOGNITION Your voice query is translated to a textual representation using best in class voice recognition provided by Nuance.

QUERY CODING Proprietary software is used to translate your question into XMLA, which provides universal data access to any standard multidimensional data.

MULTI-DIMENSIONAL DATABASE Most companies use multi-dimensional databases like Oracle Essbase to store financial and metric data. Savant harnesses the speed of these databases by translating your query in milliseconds.

HIERARCHICAL TABLES Multi-dimensional keyword tables are customized to give you access to your information using English sentences.

RESULTS SET Your query results are formatted into an interactive pivot table or graph and can be modified by adding, changing or deleting information, and it's all done with the power of your voice.

The iPhone application provides an easy way to access Essbase information. To see how Savant would work with your Essbase data, give us a shout - we love to do custom demos of Savant!
