Mobile Operational Intelligence (OI)
Real-time monitoring in the palm of your hand
Operational Intelligence is all about real-time monitoring, along with identifying and detecting areas for improvement or critical situations. It is focused on events and alerts around opportunities, threats and opportunities. Sounds important and it is.
Any business that relies on operations as a key ingredient (hint: most do) needs to pay attention to their operational intelligence data and key performance indicators and there is no better way than having them with you in real-time on your Blackberry, iPhone, iPad, Android or other device. This is what Visual KPI is all about.
Mobile operational intelligence is critical across many industries and departments:
- Overal business efficiency
- IT asset performance (servers, bandwidth, data center HVAC, etc.)
- Manufacturing lines
- Supply chain management and optimization
- Identifying critical situations before they become a crisis
- Many others
Visual KPI, when combined with your existing data sources (databases, business applications, historians, etc) is the ideal "last mile" in your Operational Intelligence strategy. It aggregates your key data in real time and delivers it visually to over 400 devices including web browsers, smartphones, tables and HDTVs. It generates optimized, data-driven screens on the fly that are tailored to each device so you don't need to worry about whether "there's an app for that." And because there's no software on the device itself, your data is secure and follows your existing IT security requirements.
Visual KPI goes beyond just giving you the numbers. It gives you the history and trends, organizes KPIs into scorecards that your business defines, and alerts you when something goes wrong or exceptionally right. You can even filter, compare, geo-locate and analyze the data from your device. All of this is defined in the Visual KPI Designer which is based on Microsoft Excel and involves zero coding. It serves as a rapid prototyping tool for your key metrics and their attributes and makes the system editable in minutes with almost no training.
Lastly, and very unique among Operational Intelligence software applications, Visual KPI was designed to eliminate big, expensive projects. It deploys on real data and real devices in days, not weeks or months. In fact, it deploys so easily that we include the deployment services for free with every license.
