Why is it important?

Business Analyze makes it easier to see patterns in data and act on that information. Management teams and other leaders use this information to make decisions and communicate with board members, investors and colleagues. Because everyone sees the same version of KPIs ( key performance indicators) everyone has the same understanding of how the company is doing and where it is heading.

“Data and analytics is top of agenda in many organizations, but the complexity and cost of Business Intelligence holds them back. Some BI tools require you to spend weeks or even months getting data analysis-ready,” says Frode Svensson, Head of Products at Business Analyze.

Business Analyze is fast to implement. Visma customers get the full insight of data, with short implementation time and fast time to value.

How does it work?

Business Analyze, business intelligence solution, provides live insight into Visma data on interactive digital dashboards. Busy executives quickly browse key figures and find helpful information about revenues, growth, costs and profitability across the business.

This new package developed by BI specialists & Visma integration experts enables IT teams, consultants and data experts deliver business insights to their executive team with greater speed and success.

  • Connect – Business Analyze data connector extracts and structures the full set of Visma.net data automatically. Compared to generic BI-tools, this saves developers weeks or even months of complicated work.
  • Visualize – Business Analyze automatically visualizes key financial and non-financial information dashboards
  • Customize – Virtually unlimited flexibility to customize and build-new dashboards

      Do-it-yourself dashboard design

      Design dashboards with Business Analyze

      Business Analyze is a great platform if you are looking to build dashboards or modify pre-built reports. This powerful system contains a complete toolset for editing dashboards so you always get the perfect view of data.

      Perhaps you want to make improvements to your current reports. Perhaps you want to make dashboards for a new colleague.  In any case, designing dashboards for better performance can be a fun and rewarding.

      When to design?

      There can be many reasons you want to change design.

      Typical reasons include:

      1. Reports don’t show the right information
      2. Level of detail is too low/high
      3. Charts or tables are imprecise or confusing
      4. Reports are on wrong level, time period or category
      5. Titles or labels are misleading
      6. New data is available
      7. New KPIs become important
      8. There’s a change in organisation (e.g. new employees)
      9. There’s a change in business processes

      When any of these conditions is true, you can make build and customise reports to your exact specifications. As long as you have a clear goal, the rest is easy.

      Features for Designers

      Business Analyze has powerful tools for organising data and building dashboards.

      As a designer you can:

      • Add new reports and dashboards
      • Redesign, resize and delete reports
      • Rename elements
      • Add, change or remove elements within a report
      • Change chart types
      • Change chart properties (e.g. titles, labels etc.)
      • Edit layouts and colors
      • Create and edit drilldowns
      • Change the way data is grouped, pivoted and calculated
      • Add columns to a table
      • Sort a table and save the changes
      • ..and much more

      These features are available for everyone with ‘Designer’ access-rights.

      How to become a designer

      Designers can see the ‘Edit desktops’ command on the main menu. If this command isn’t available, you can’t edit the active desktop.

      To get permission, contact your system administrator. System administrators decide who can edit desktops. This is to protect privacy and ensure only authorised people can access the data. It also reduces the risk that dashboards are mistakenly deleted.

      Are you ready to design? Contact us or email customer success@businessanalyze.com for more information about introductory courses and learning programmes.

          Data-driven Leadership: How to maneuver with KPIs

          kpi-tracking

          With clearly defined KPIs and a solid data base you are far better equipped to guide your team and reach key goals. Here are three steps to consider when implementing KPIs.

          Business leaders have long used KPIs (key performance indicators) as a valuable tool for implementing strategies. Regardless of the situation, you want to know what’s happening so you can maneuver in the right direction. Effectively applied, data can be used to guide decision-making, optimize processes, and reach goals across all levels and functions of the business.

          While there are many factors to consider when implementing KPIs, there are 3 steps in particular that will help you guide your team to success.

          1. Set a course

          A KPI is a measurable value that helps guide organisations towards their goals.

          To function effectively, KPIs must be linked to the company’s strategic goals. These are then broken down at a tactical level (department) and then at an operational level (individual), so that everyone in the company gets ownership of the goals.

          Choosing the right KPIs can be tricky. No matter which KPIs you land on, do not measure too many KPIs just because you can. When there are too many figures to keep track of, goal management becomes too complicated. Each department should only deal with a handful of carefully selected KPIs.

          What are KPIs for marketing, sales, finance, customer success and more? See KPI Examples.

          2. Navigate

          In order to navigate with KPIs, data must be presented in a way that is easy to understand and access. This is done with the help of KPI dashboards.

          KPI dashboards use data visualisations to help you continuously evaluate performance and make necessary changes. Easy to understand graphs and charts help you assess what’s happening and what you can do to improve.

          By using KPIs effectively you will be able to answer questions such as:

          • What is the  current performance level (status)?
          • How close the company, team, department or individuals  to their target (actual versus target)?
          • How is performance changing over the past days, weeks, months (trend)?
          • How is our performance compared to  to internal or external standard (benchmark)?
          • What an we do even better (segment analysis)?

          With these answers on hand, it’s easier to anticipate and adapt to changing conditions.

          3. Implement and follow-up

          It is essential your organisation has a common understanding of goals and what you are trying to acheive. Many strategies fail because goals were communicated once, but not continually reinforced. Leaders must gain and maintain commitment by ensuring their teams understand what they are trying to acheive and why they are focusing on exactly these measurements.

          Once teams are committed, KPIs are the basis for coaching, acting and motivating the organisation. Every step towards reach targets is an accomplishment which should be recognized.

          The real value of working with KPIs is realised when KPIs are used consistently and regularly in leader meetings, team updates, and one-to-one meetings. If all indicators are pointing in one direction, it doesn’t help if no one follows them up.

          Final word—Make it simple.

          Many organisations struggle with the complexity and diversity of their company’s data. Data specialists, sales operations, department managers and upper management can spend a lot of time gathering data and charting KPIs.

          Businesses should set up modern systems to organize KPI-data without manual routines. The majority of businesses have more than enough data in their current databases.

          An effective business intelligence tool will gather performance data, organize it into meaninful information, and help you motivate your team towards successful goal acheivement.
