If you’re a CIO or a senior manager in a large IT organization, an important facet of your job is feeding an insatiable appetite for business intelligence in a cost-effective manner. Your employees, customers, partners and suppliers operate in a data-hungry world that demands unprecedented insight and accountability at breakneck speeds.
You probably have substantial investments in databases, report writers and other tools to create actionable reports and data files. But how do you ensure that the right information gets to the right person at the right time? Moreover, how can you reliably scale your report distribution infrastructure for the extended enterprise when you manage hundreds of applications and thousands of reports?
You may face challenges like these:
Wouldn’t it be great if a single vendor could provide you with a complete portfolio of “push” and “pull” business intelligence distribution solutions that address these challenges?
ChristianSteven Software has spent the better part of two decades developing and refining a best-of-breed collection of tools and services to meet the needs of business intelligence consumers across the push-to-pull spectrum of report distribution requirements. Experience with hundreds of customers has enabled ChristianSteven to offer unique and proven solutions that fill gaps, add concrete business value and lower operational costs.
As an IT analyst, you are the primary interface to the rest of the company for IT services and support. This can be very challenging, particularly if you are responsible for business intelligence solutions. End-users rarely have enough reports or tools to satisfy their needs for intelligence derived from transactional data in business applications, yet you are constrained by the number of hours in a day, not to mention the lack of funding for more analysts.
If you need to support homegrown solutions that are well past their expiration date, you’re spending too much time fixing bugs. Your job responsibilities also include responding to untimely off-hours processing failures. And if a department head independently purchases an unknown cloud service to meet their needs, you now have the undesirable pleasure of integrating or supporting a solution that IT has not vetted or approved.
Leaders in the company and staff all want real-time dashboards, support for all kinds of mobile devices and self-service report generators, something that cannot be reliably or quickly built in-house.
Undoubtedly you are tired of being treated like an obstacle or adversary by the departments you support. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a single vendor offered an integrated report distribution platform that satisfied all these needs and decreased your support burden? If you could offer such solutions, you would be a hero in your work community.
