Reports/Ad Hoc Analysis/Dashboards

Demonstrated Results

  • The Five 9 Group Business Intelligence Development Team is designing and developing a complete Business Intelligence Solution for the new ICE Financial Reporting Repository (FRR).

Services and Experience

Our robust systems translate your data into information, and your information into intelligence with the appropriate detail for each level of your organization. Our business intelligence team works with executives, managers, analysts, and line personnel to ‘tune’ your BI environment to peak efficiency and provide actionable information.

We translate user needs into meaningful applications that provide information when and where it’s needed. We have extensive experience with the following:

  • Standard Reports: Regulatory, operational, and field level reports require the same queries to be run repeatedly. We build user customizable reports so that a single report template replaces a variety of reports, simplifying your system and making it easier to find what you need
  • Ad hoc Analysis: No one can see the future and your business analysts need tools to allow them to answer the new questions that certainly will arise. We provide easy to navigate business intelligence tools, build custom data models for the various aspects of your business and help your power users develop their own queries
  • Dashboards: Five 9 Group delivers visually appealing snapshots of your business to allow decision makers to identify and take action on issues as they arise. Drill down capabilities make it possible to pinpoint the source of a problem, avoid “shotgun” approaches, and ensure that business intelligence solutions or mitigation actions are on target
