WebOracle helps clients to make better sense of their data using standard Data Mining

Data mining is the process of discovering actionable information from large sets of data. Data mining uses mathematical analysis to derive patterns and trends that exist in data. Typically, these patterns cannot be discovered by traditional data exploration because the relationships are too complex or because there is too much data. These patterns and trends can be collected and defined as a data mining model. Mining models can be applied to specific scenarios, such as:

  • Forecasting: Estimating sales, predicting server loads or server downtime
  • Risk and probability: Choosing the best customers for targeted mailings, determining the probable break-even point for risk scenarios, assigning probabilities to diagnoses or other outcomes
  • Recommendations: Determining which products are likely to be sold together, generating recommendations
  • Finding sequences: Analyzing customer selections in a shopping cart, predicting next likely events

We also do all ground up work like setting up enterprise or departamental data warehouses, constructing cubes, writing custom MDX for reports and ADO-MD queries for .NET integration.

With SQL 2012 roll-up the semantic data models makes analyses process significantelt more cost effective. Building typical departamental “cube” now takes 40% less time than when using traditional UDM.

WebOracle improves business decision making by deploying insightful and targeted performance reports and dashboards.

 One of the highest-value applications within an intranet or extranet portal is a performance report and dashboard solution. Since the corporate portal is the hub of information and knowledge within the enterprise, it makes sense to include business performance data and visualizations of that data within the portal. Providing applicable performance reporting to employees will improve the speed at which the organization adjusts its strategies and tactics in order to drive better future performance.

Microsoft SharePoint is an ideal portal framework for surfacing key business reports and dashboards. Given SharePoint’s strong security model, reports and dashboards can be targeted to specific user groups such that users are only able to view information relative to their job function and seniority within the organization. Similarly, specific reports can be targeted to external constituents on the extranet while employees have access to a much broader set of reports on the intranet.

WebOracle has a strong team of database experts that have deep experience with multidimensional analytical processing solutions. SharePoint is well suited to Business Intelligence applications given its native support for technologies such as PowerPivot, PowerView, SQL Server Reporting Services, and Excel Services. For more than a decade, WebOracle has delivered robust Business Intelligence and related reporting solutions to enterprises across North America.
