How we can help you
Delivering fact-based data for intelligent business decisions, Ballard Chalmers’ Business Intelligence expertise combined with Microsoft’s Business Intelligence technology stack enables you to gain the competitive edge from data whilst reducing overheads.
BI provides the insights into data that allows decision-makers to discover trends and work faster and more efficiently.
Our BI engineers can transform data into a Data Warehouse that will provide easy and fast access to that data, allowing users to easily create the dashboards, charts, reports and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that they need.
In a traditional on-premises environment: SQL Server together with SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), Analysis Services (SSAS) and Reporting Services (SSRS) provide the tools to create a Data Warehouse using Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) processes and then to analyse and report on that data.
In the cloud or hybrid environment: SQL Azure, SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Data Factory, Azure Analysis Services and Power BI provide the tools for processing structured data. Plus, a whole range of tools for handling large scale unstructured data sets including: Azure Data Lake, Hdinsight (Apache Hadoop), Data Lake Analytics (U-SQL, R and Python) and Databricks (Apache Spark).
