Cloud

Longview announced the merger with Tidemark, an enterprise financial planning and analytics cloud software company. This consolidation combines Longview’s proven solutions with a “next generation platform”. Corporate adoption of cloud software for business planning and operations management is growing steadily.

Companies use “infrastructure as a service”, hosted on the internet. In this way, they achieve an easy utilisation of IT-resources without locally installed hard- and software. We offer different technologies to meet your cloud system requirements.

Voice Control in Business Intelligence

Top managers are always on the move, in a hurry or often simply have no hands free. The right reports have to be available on the fly, so to speak. The manual search for the right information can be tedious, extremely time-consuming and error-prone. Use the new freedom of voice control to call up your important business information conveniently and intuitively by voice command. A voice-controlled BI system works securely, correctly and efficiently.

Advantages of voice control in reporting:

  • Immediate query of key figures
  • Alarm functionalities
  • Networking of all important business information
  • Revolution in the way of operation
  • Flexibility and comfort for office, meeting and on the go
  • Can be used in several languages

Predictive Analytics

Predictive analytics solutions offer a tangible competitive advantage in decision-making processes. The basis is no longer just data from the past, but additional forecasts for the future. A predictive analytics solution combines data from various sources, e.g. multidimensional databases, web archives, IOT data streams or classical spreadsheets. Predictive analytics solutions are able to analyze data down to the lowest level in no time at all. Manual analysis would take far too much time and money compared to manual analysis. Planning cycles can be significantly shortened because data preparation is largely automated. Using mathematical-statistical algorithms, complex, perhaps previously unknown relationships between internal and external data can be discovered and used for future forecasts. By knowing how and when certain events influence the KPIs of the company, decision-makers can recognize developments at an early stage and thus gain more planning security and valuable scope of actions.
