SRK: The Cloud-Native Self-Service BI Platform with Data and Collaboration Hub
SRK gives business users an intuitive means to access real-time, accurate business insight within a centralized, secure, and collaborative environment. It offers an innovative alternative to traditional IT dependent BI tools and time consuming, error prone spreadsheet analysis. The SRK cloud-based platform includes:
- Seamless Aggregation — Blend structured and unstructured data from various sources using industry-standard data formats and protocols
- Automated Analytics — Streamline data merging and data processing logic to implement versatile analysis and agile reporting
- Centralized Control – Achieve data security and logic consistency in the cloud with multi-tenancy and record level access control
- Collaborative Operation – Promote self-reliance in acting upon your analytical results across the organization with actionable sharing
A typical ERP-oriented system may provide business users with raw data gathered from daily operations, yet offers little to no subjective analytical insights. It fails to deliver the business logic needed to drive further performance analysis and other complex computations, e.g. sales commission calculations or customer renewals.
In the past, the commonly adopted solution for business-driven analysis was tedious, time-consuming and prone to error: the Spreadsheet. Dependent on experienced team members to manually copy and paste data in order to gather and update data values, spreadsheet mashups were subject to inaccurate insights and inadequate sharing and access protocols.
DrivenBI’s SRK challenges this outdated methodology, providing centralized, flexible Data Analytics as a Service to replace spreadsheets in your business analysis for decision making.
As the business-driven solution, SRK meets both user and infrastructure desires by providing an intelligent, customized view of business insights, with less reliance on IT.
Engineered to be a subjective, analytical engine, SRK allows for the seamless aggregation of data across varied sources using common portable data standards. Against analytical logic locked in the SRK cloud, data from many sources may be applied through data import or a real-time web services feed. Accessible from any web browser on laptops or on mobile devices 24×7, SRK provides consistent, flexible analytics and results that are ready immediately after data import.
SRK analysis is powered by operational ownership through built-in multi-tenancy, achieving consistency and security in the cloud. Maintaining a high level of access control promotes self-reliance within departments and supports seamless actionable sharing and collaboration across an organization.
Do it all inside SRK
Nowadays, many businesses still use spreadsheets to produce and deliver a majority of their ad-hoc and dynamic data analysis, despite the fact that most of them have already invested in costly enterprise BI systems. There is a reason for that. Traditional BI systems depend heavily on technologies such as ETL and Data Warehouse consequently involving time consuming processes for IT department to deliver analysis to business users. However, present day organizations cannot wait for all the data to be warehoused before making critical business decisions.
SRK improves these situations in big ways. As a platform designed from the ground up with self-service in mind, SRK empowers non-technical business users to develop their own dynamic analysis for just-in-time decision making. Self-service with SRK means no reliance on IT infrastructure and technical skills such as programming. Furthermore, as a 100% cloud-based data analysis platform, SRK becomes your centralized cloud data hub – keeps everything in one place, facilitates better collaboration and information sharing, enables fine granular access control and security, and a lot more.
No spreadsheets. No programming. No data warehouse.
Using SRK can help you save a great deal of time and maintenance costs. No capital investment in IT infrastructure, no need to implement IT components such as ETL procedure and Data Warehouse, and requires absolutely no programming. Thus business users can create analysis on their own at a fraction of the time and cost compared to using IT dependent BI tools. Moreover, compared to using spreadsheets, analysis created and managed using SRK are highly secured, easy to share and take actions upon, much more automated, and always up-to-date.
In the self-service data analysis market, SRK is a highly competitive, breakthrough product. It offers innovative patent-pending features that enables business users to create interactive dashboards without any programming and build multi-dimensional analysis without requiring data modeling and OLAP cube. It has solid technical foundation built on top of leading-edge technologies such as Hadoop and Spark and thereby can work with both structured data and unstructured data. SRK provides multi-lingual support and is available as public cloud or on-premise private cloud, with subscription or perpetual license.
- Simplicity: Reduce reliance on IT. No ETL, no data warehouse, no OLAP.
- Collaboration: Share reports and assign tasks to be completed
