Business intelligence tools are designed to help business people draw insights from past performance, predict future events and avoid obstacles even before they have taken place. The investment in and use of BI analytics tools has experienced long-term growth, regardless of the economic cycle. It has accelerated in recent years as enterprises are craving data to not just grow and improve, but also to manage their businesses on a daily basis. The times when BI was applied only by large enterprises due to complexity, costs and the skills required are long gone. Today small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are becoming significant BI buyers. Our main goal in developing a self-service business intelligence tool is to deliver a smart solution that is truly designed with the needs of the end-user in mind, regardless of the company size or industry – datapine adapts to your needs. Compared to software packages offered by other companies, you don’t need a BI expert or SQL developer in your team to operate datapine’s self-service BI tool. With datapine, you can perform data analysis on your own and also empower your staff to manipulate datasets. With no prior training required, management, business development, marketing and controlling departments can access the company database and make their own queries with our advanced SQL query builder. We designed our easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface together with a large number of companies – from small startups to global players – to make sure it is as intuitive and self-explanatory as possible. datapine automates your business processes and saves you time, money, and in turn contributes to increasing overall productivity levels.
As the amount of business data is constantly growing, it is important that companies focus their efforts on managing the data and analysing it with the help of self-service business intelligence. datapine provides you with a tool with which you can easily access the information needed to see the evolution of the data and, in this way, allow you to anticipate future events and make relevant business decisions. visualising data on clear and actionable dashboards will help you see the reasons and context behind every business decision as well as allow you to view your current business situation from every angle. Data visualisations are also a great aid in storytelling. You can deliver a story with your data, driving your audience’s attention to relevant data points and engaging them in your story. Dashboards are accessible anywhere, all you need is an Internet connection and a web browser. Your audience can view the dashboards on their personal devices and take active part in decision-making process.
In order to stand apart from the competition, reduce costs, and increase profits, a company must make intelligent decisions. To do this, these decisions must logically be based on trustworthy and relevant data, and this is exactly where self-service BI tools come in useful.

Years ago, business analysis was limited to predefined, work-intensive static reports which absorbed a lot of time to be prepared by people responsible. Now all business users can select, filter, compare, visualise and analyse data using a self-service business intelligence tool. The underlying working principle is that the data set and the metrics used will be predefined, but the analysis itself may vary based on the immediate needs of the information consumer when performing that analysis. A smart abstraction layer translates your interactions into database queries, supported by our powerful proprietary analytical engines. Then you can make your data readable by turning it into meaningful visualisations. The resulting charts and tables can be easily shared via a dynamic KPI dashboard, meaning anyone in your company can view, understand and participate in the data extraction process – not just trained IT specialists. You can make use of our reporting functionality by sending the insights generated by datapine to your colleagues in the form of XLS, PDF or PNG file, on a scheduled date or at fixed intervals of time. You can also share the dashboards by sending URL to chosen recipients. Easy data-oriented communication will help you to improve cooperation within your team, increase your efficiency and identify new business opportunities which could go unnoticed if it wasn’t for multifaceted data analysis.
The days of exporting large sets of data to spreadsheets to be converted into charts and pivot tables are now over. datapine’s best business analytics software enables you to monitor your data and generate new insights from wherever you are. datapine’s data analysis tool offers a browser-based client interface that works across all major Web browsers.
