Enter data for forecasting, planning, and what-if scenarios, and get insight into business information and trends, wherever you are. Or create or update plans and forecasts to drive business improvement. Once you have the information you need, you can quickly export information to Excel, PDF, PowerPoint, or other formats. And because Infor BI plugs into Infor Ming.le™, you can use social collaboration as part of your decision-making process.

Whether you’re visiting customers, partners, or suppliers, you’ll have the information you need at your fingertips with browser and mobile-based dashboards.

measure-your-business

Measure your business

With Infor BI, you have a single system that measures and monitors your business, delivering timely and up-to-date information in a format that is immediately useable. Out-of-the-box, you have access to analysis models that sit on top of any dataset and automatically identify trends, outliers, clusters, and rankings—to name just a few—to draw your attention to the most important information and use it to drive decisions. You can easily adapt your own reports and create new ones. Data is automatically filtered and secured so that you see only the information that is relevant to you.

Contextual analytics

To evaluate business processes, you need more than numbers. You need access to essential background information on customers, contacts, and more, which is often stored in text files, spreadsheets, emails, websites, and other semi-structured files. With Infor BI, you can supplement your reports with links to these relevant documents and web pages. You can also incorporate geo-spatial displays of data by overlaying analytical information on top of Google Maps™. You can immediately begin to tap your current data sources because the solution easily adapts to your company’s structures.

contextual-analytics
sophisticated-information-analysis

Sophisticated information analysis

Sorting, ranking, color-coding, animated charts, tooltips, and other advanced analytic options help you assess information in seconds.

By creating new or modifying existing models within the Excel environment, you’ll keep the software in sync with changes—without requiring support from IT.

Access rights and user profiles

View only the information you need for your tasks using detailed access rights and user profiles. Prepare and filter raw data into specialized information using a list concept, and easily create ad-hoc analyses and reports on the fly (much like using a pivot table).

Your information screens will maintain their professional layout with zero maintenance because Infor BI Application Studio automatically selects the correct number of rows and columns for each query.

You’ll be able to easily create sophisticated reports such as trend analyses using helpful wizards. Advanced users and Business Intelligence Competency Centers can also produce custom templates and adapt standard ones to include corporate design, key performance indicators, and more, making their BI solution unique and giving them a competitive advantage.

Change the speed of business

You can change business rules and see the results of those changes quickly, because all modeling is done in the memory-resident calculation engine.

Users won’t need to look through pages and pages of reports to find what’s important.
