Why does your business need data analytics?

Every business has a story to tell, a narrative that’s hidden inside your data and holds the key to your business value. Are you ready to unlock your potential?

What are the things about your business that keep you up at night? How many problems would you be able to solve if only you had more information to help you make decisions?

What if we told you, you already have more than enough data to make important business decisions? That your data is trying to tell you a story, but you need something to help you translate that story into layman’s terms, to help you understand all the functions in your organisation?

How can you make your data speak to you? The answer is – data analytics.

Why are leading business investing in data analytics?

  • Businesses that are top performers in their field use data analytics five times more than lower-performers.
  • Organisations that invest in advanced analytics grow their revenue by 33% and have 12 times more profit growth.

Despite the massive amount of data available, and the obvious benefits, less than 0.5% of all data is analysed and used.

Why do you need data analytics?

You need data analytics because, as the above statistic shows, you are sitting on a goldmine of potential. “Data is the new oil,” says Sivi Covenden. “If you can’t measure it, how do you manage it?”

Think back to the things that keep you up at night. With data analytics, you can derive insight from your data and use this insight to solve problems.

Imagine you’re a CIO with many projects running at the same time. At the moment, you have data available, but it’s all stored in different places and on different systems. Now imagine you had a big screen up against the wall with a simple, easy-to-understand dashboard that could show you everything that’s going on in your organisation. Wouldn’t you sleep better at night already, knowing that you can understand the story behind your data?

When you understand your data, you have the power to control all the different functions in your organisation. So, why do you need data analytics?

  • Data is gold and there is value in it.
  • Insight from data helps you make better, smarter business decisions.
  • The solutions to your problems are in your data.
  • Data helps you grow, retain and satisfy customers.
  • Data increases your operational efficiency.

Why Agilus Solutions?

We’ve adapted our name – Agilus – from the Latin word “agilis”, which means something that is light, easy to move, nimble and quick. It also means active, or prompt, and all these adjectives embody the spirit of Agilus Solutions.

First, we are an agile company. Everything we do follows the agile methodology, as opposed to the waterfall method which is the more traditional approach to project management. With the agile method, the client has more input at every stage of the project, from design to implementation and beyond.

Second, we follow a proactive approach to problem-solving. Our collaborative approach to problem-solving enables us to come up with the best solutions for your business. With quick and accessible data, we are able to understand what works, and what doesn’t, and we have the flexibility to change the project and reprioritise at any stage.
