Business intelligence

Without data you are just another person with an opinion

Turning the masses of data held in and around your business into timely, accurate and accessible information is key to business success. Being able to ask questions of your data to get relevant answers and share these with your teams, only helps to drive the business and take informative actions.

Over the years we have seen data scarcity move to data overload, choosing the right tools to help you see the wood from the trees is paramount to success. The Circyl team have masses of experience working with databases, data, and analytical tools, and in more recent years have chosen to become expert in Power BI.

Power BI is a suite of business analytics tools that deliver insights throughout your organisation. It enables you to connect to many data sources, simplify data prep, and drive ad hoc analysis. Using a familiar Microsoft Office experience, beautiful reports and dashboards can be produced, and then published for your organisation to consume on the web and across mobile devices. We can help you create personalised dashboards with a unique 360-degree view of your business, and scale across the enterprise, with governance and security built-in.
