Understanding Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse

Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse (BI/DW) are two separate but closely linked technologies that are crucial to the success of any large or mid-size business. The insights derived from these systems are vital for an organization as it helps in revenue enhancement, cost reduction, and adroit decision making.

Let’s understand what is Business Intelligence, Data Warehouse (DW), and how they are related.

Business Intelligence (BI)

Interpreting large volume of data often throws up challenges to the enterprises. However, BI can help companies with the easy interpretation of this big data, renders actionable information to end users and supports them in making more informed business decisions.

BI encompasses the set of strategies, technologies, applications, data, and processes used by an organization and supports in data analysis, demonstration, and propagation of business information. BI persuades enterprises to make effective business operational decisions such as product positioning and pricing and strategic decisions like goals, priorities, and directions at the broadest level. BI combines the external data derived from the market with the internal data obtained from the company sources (financial and operational data) and creates an “intelligence” that cannot be reaped from any singular set of data.

Data Warehouse (DW)

Data storage and management is an important managerial activity in any organization today and have become significant for rational decision making. A DW acts as a central repository system where an enterprise stores all its data (from one or more sources) in one place. DW helps industries in reporting and data analysis from the current and historical data stored, and hence it is considered as a core component of Business Intelligence.

Usually, data streams from online transaction processing database into a data warehouse on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

The process flow in data warehouse includes

  • Extract data from source systems and upload to DW
  • Data Cleansing and Transformation
  • Archiving the data
  • Steering the data to appropriate data sources

This whole process of extracting data and loading it to DW is generally called ETL (extraction, transformation, and loading).

Benefits of a Data Warehouse

  • Enhance business intelligence with effective strategic, tactical, and operational insights
  • DW contains a copy of analytical data that expedite decision making
  • The data cleansing promises the data quality before it is used for reporting
  • Integrate data from multiple data sources and make it accessible from one place.
  • Easier and more efficient decision-support query writing
  • Enable decision-makers and business users to have timely access to the data from different sources.
  • Stores large volumes of historical data which helps in analyzing different time periods and trends that aid in making future predictions
  • Restructures the data and deliver excellent query performance even for complex analytic queries without impacting the day-to-day transactions

BI/DW

BI/DW implementation

Most business intelligence applications use data collected from a data warehouse, and the concepts of BI and DW together known as BI/DW. Data warehousing helps in achieving a successful BI program by facilitating several key aspects of reporting and data analytics.

Augmented Reality Vs. Virtual Reality: Which One Will Triumph?

Technology can make everything possible nowadays. It has developed in such a way that it even makes you sense and feel your presence in your dream or imagined world. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are two of such most crucial technology advancements that detach you from the real world. However, the theory between both the AR and VR is entirely different.

AR device

Let us dive into the article, to know the subtle differences between AR and VR.

Virtual reality is an artificial environment that is created by computer graphics, which can be experienced as if that was real. Whereas, augmented reality adds an overlay to the already existing real world, instead of replacing reality (a blend of virtual reality and real life).

Virtual Reality Modeling

Both AR and VR are similar in the ambition of connecting users beyond the real life. However, both the systems do this in diverse ways. With VR, you will be isolated from real-life and involve in the world that is entirely fabricated. With AR, you will be continuously in touch with real-world besides interacting virtual objects around them.

What are they used for?

Everyone believes that virtual reality is just for gaming. But, any business that would benefit from involving users in a different world can use VR technology. This technology could be used during therapeutic treatments for problems such as phobias and other circumstances like tourism to show people the things which no longer exist but are of interest.

AR exists with a much wider scope. Anything that is developed using VR technology can also be developed by AR technology. When we consider games, treatment, and tourism with AR technology, they provide more realistic experience as they were developed having the real world as a part of the technology.

Which technology will succeed?

Even though VR garnered attention in recent years, AR technology acquired substantial financial support from investors and venture capitalists. This is because; AR, in fact, is a stimulated approach towards tangible results and is far more practical with multiple implementations than VR.

As various products with augmented reality are already in the market, we can state that it is ahead of virtual reality. When it comes to VR technology, it is spreading its wings with the rise of Oculus Rift but has still a long way to go to receive a strong impression from users.

Market sector forecasts estimated that by 2020, AR and VR would hit $150 billion revenue with AR taking $120 billion shares and VR at $30 billion.

AR device

Though AR does not take people completely out of the real world, it may have more commercial success as it provides a realistic experience. However, we believe that both AR and VR technologies will succeed.

Disaster Recovery as a Service

Unforeseen outages make entrepreneurs painfully aware of the preeminence of disaster recovery (DR) planning. However, anticipating a data center outage is not just about an effective DR strategy, it is more about lessening the business impact.

Executing a DR plan aligned with operational imperatives and business needs can trigger challenges with demanding recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO) requirements, with a little crave for the investment, deployment, and continuous management of a DR environment. Therefore, for enterprises with limited resources to maintain DR needs, cloud-based disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) offers another layer of protection to their data while minimizing CapEx and simplifying deployment.

DRaaS includes the replication of infrastructure, applications, and data to the cloud. DRaaS not only protects your data and also ensures your business continuity by minimizing downtime and interruption to clients, customers, and employees in the event of a disaster or server failure.

A dedicated DRaaS service provider manages both primary production and disaster recovery instances in the cloud and benefits enterprises in eliminating on-premises infrastructure. An ideal cloud-based DR Service offers the following key elements:

  • Greatly reduced CapEx
  • Immediate business continuity
  • Simpler disaster recovery deployment
  • Full-site, disk, file, and system recovery
  • A replica of all protected systems
  • WAN optimization between cloud and the customer site
  • Data validation to ensure the data integrity

Benefits of Cloud-based DR Service

Cost-effective Solution

The pay-as-you-go pricing model of the cloud significantly lowers costs by eliminating unpredictable failure of hardware, software or data center. The DR Service helps reduce the secondary or tertiary data center investments and on-going maintenance.

Efficient to Start

An effective DR strategy provides an easy way to implement a DR Service by not investing in any hardware or a secondary site and by not hiring and training the new staff. The service offers a secure, scalable, automated, and simple process to replicate and recover applications & data during a disruptive event.

Improve Operational Efficiency

DR offers flexible services that help you to scale up during seasonal peaks and to scale down while slower times. This versatility improves the operational efficiency of your business and helps in better management of your budget, resources, and personnel.

Reliable Security

To deploy and manage applications in cloud services, organizations concern about security. However, choosing a service provider, who is compliant with all the relevant regulations, will help you with the most reliable security.

Hence, with cloud-based DR solution, organizations can benefit from flexible contract terms, lower price points, and the scalability to grow as your business needs change. DRaaS ensures your business continuity of daily operations with minimal disruptions. Therefore, to safeguard all aspects of your organization, a comprehensive DR strategy has to be implemented.

Cross-Platform Mobile App Development – Why and When to Choose it?

When you have made the decision of developing a mobile application for your business, the first question that comes to your mind is which mobile platform to choose. With the availability of various platforms like iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows, choosing the right platform is critical for reaching your business goals. However, to increase the market of a business, sticking to one platform is not a smart approach. Your application has to be developed nearly in all the competent mobile platforms to reach your target audience. Therefore, using mobile technology like Cross-platform will help your application run on multiple platforms.

Cross-platform allows developers to focus on one single code base that can run on multiple mobile platforms. Though, creating an app in cross-platform technology raises challenges such as platform limitations, differences in tools and languages, platform integration, etc. it has a rising demand for its benefits like delivering cost-effective solutions, etc. while saving your time.

cross platform mobile app development

Why to Choose Cross-platform Mobile App Development?

Greater Market Potential

With cross-platform technology, you can reach a maximum number of your target audience by being available on more platforms. The availability of your application on competing platforms like iOS and Android benefits your business with greater market potential.

Faster Development

Developing an application in different platforms separately may be a lengthy process. Developers can leverage one codebase in cross-platform and customize on multiple platforms rather than creating a new codebase for each platform. Hence, developing apps on cross-platform is faster and also helps to release your app quickly.

Cost-effective Solution

Cross-platform is a cost-effective solution as it requires single development skillset. The maintenance charges and updates will sync across all platforms and devices, which saves your time and money.

Lower Technical Barriers

Working on cross-platform technology tools like ActionScript & Flex or HTML & JavaScript is easier for developing an application. It helps a developer in lowering the technical barriers and allows them to focus in creating the application.

Uniform Look and Feel

When an application is running on a single codebase, the uniformity in look and feel of the app can be maintained easily. This kind of uniform app may portray your brand image.

Though cross-platform assists your business with various advantages, some parts of this technology have to be improved. It has some limitations with user experience, platform integration, and flexibility. Hence, it is necessary to evaluate all the possibilities and absurd when deciding whether to choose native or cross-platform. The ideal choice you make depends on your business goals.

How to Run a Profitable E-Commerce Business?

Over the past few years, e-commerce sales have profoundly been reaping benefits for businesses. However, a comprehensive business strategy is required to acquire maximum profits in the e-commerce world. So, here I have mentioned you some tips on how to run a profitable e-commerce business.

Profitable E-commerce Business

Know Your Differentiators

It is important to know your differentiators when you plunge into any business. Differentiate your business from the competitors to get disclosed by the customers. Though Jabong was not the novice in the e-commerce industry, it created a niche for itself by targetting fashion & accessories as a category. Similarly, Ekbote Furniture knows the strength of its offline brand in solid wood furniture manufacturing, entered the online market to take the likes of Fabfurnish and Pepperfry by offering finest products at a competitive price.

Pick the Right Technical Service Provider

The scalability or performance is vital for any e-commerce business. It needs to be adroitly supported by a technical service partner, which helps you focus on the core business leaving the technical support as your partner’s responsibility. Therefore, it is necessary to choose a right technical service provider to achieve your goals.

Focus Long-Term Goals

If you adapt online business marketing and acquire loyal customers in a short term, you get profits within 6 to 12 months from launch. To succeed in e-commerce early, you need to invest your time and money prudently in the beginning. For example, Haldirams Online currently offers free shipping pan India despite the value of products purchased. Their aim is to improve the habit of buying namkeen online among customers as they believe that the quality of their brand will ensure that no other competitor can achieve that.

Target Potential Customers

Every customer may not be interested in buying your product. Hence, start your experimentation with different ideas in the digital world and narrow down few tactical plans that work and scales. Implementing target search engine marketing, social media optimization, affiliate sales, up-sell, cross-sell, and selling on multiple marketplaces will drive more traffic to your website. To find the right potential customers, it is necessary to have an effective digital marketing strategy.

Focus on Post-sales Service

Unlike physical retail, e-commerce service comes after the sale. Your old customers are a valuable source of sales. As they already know your business, you can persuade customers to buy from you again with better post-sale services. You may send personal thank you notes, encourage customers to share their happy stories on social media, etc., may create wonders in your digital marketing.

Follow these steps and expose your business on all the popular marketplaces to reach a maximum number of customers. Whether it is an e-commerce or m-commerce store, a well designed and developed platform is imperative to attract and engage customers.

Vmoksha’s seasoned professionals create an online store in the web or mobile platforms, which will be the best interface between you and your customers. We design and develop your website in such a way that customers handle your e-commerce platform without any confusions and hassles and can be easily worked upon.

App Landing Page is the Key Factor in App Marketing

Apps make huge business. Consequently, the demand for apps has also been increasing in the market. Hence, the presentation of your app in the app store is imperative to stand out from the competitors. Moreover, what makes a user download your app completely depends on the elements that you have included in the app landing page.

An alluring and interpretive landing page will drive more traffic to your app’s page and convince users to download your app from the app store. Therefore, app landing page optimization maximizes your downloads and has become a significant factor in the app marketing.


App Landing Page

 

Mobile App Marketing Tips

Let’s have a look at the various components that directly help to optimize your app page.

Call to Action

  • Include call-to-action button at every level
  • Use visual cues like arrows or images of people looking at the button, to draw the eye
  • If you have content below the fold, repeat the CTA
  • If you have other call-to-actions on the page, de-emphasize them visually compared with the earliest one.
  • Use commonly understood, short action-oriented words

App Description

  • Provide description for the most relevant information first
  • Describe key functionalities briefly
  • Mention key features in bullet points
  • Use familiar words

App Screenshots

  • Place appealing screenshots that demonstrate the best features of your app
  • Arrange them according to app features’ priority
  • Keep updating new screenshots in the app page when you launched new features
  • Screenshots must consist only the relevant features

Videos (App Trailer / App Preview)

  • Insert a video to demo your app
  • Explain the simple concept of how app acts in real
  • Illustrate the benefits
  • Add a call to action button at the end
  • The duration of video must be short
  • Include music and feature list

Complementary Colors

  • Use complementary colors for appealing designs
  • Try varying the text color of important messages
  • Create contrast between CTA and other elements

Above the Fold

  • Keep your CTA, key features and form fields above the fold
  • Make sure your appropriate landing page information can be seen without scrolling down
  • Keep features above the fold and detailed descriptions below the fold

So, don’t forget to consider these components while you are creating or updating your app landing page.

Marketing becomes much easier when you have a great app with incredible features. The success of an app is also associated with outstanding design, performance, scalability, and rich user interface.

App Monitoring – Why is it Critical for the Success of Your Business?

Though several new apps are being launched every day, customers opt for faster and more accurate service providing apps. Therefore, maintaining app quality is the core of any business to stand out from the competitors. However, app quality is not just about the app designing and development, the performance of the app is also crucial for the success of an app.

Monitoring an application will help detect and fix a problem – before your customer even aware of that problem exists. So, app monitoring has become an increasingly significant factor to retain customers and help businesses achieve the exceptional customer loyalty. Here is how the performance of an app influences your business.

Importance of App Performance

If a user doesn’t like the app performance, he will reject it immediately. According to a recent survey of app users, 44% of users said they would delete an app if its performance is not well enough. They have also said that, being disappointed with certain apps immensely, they not only delete the apps but also make the effort to warn would-be buyers about app’s performance issues by leaving a review. Social media also makes this condition worse as bad reviews spread at the speed of light.

Apps have to be updated regularly because apps that are never looked by developers once released have major performance issues, which get worse with time.

What Metrics to Focus On?

Tracking metrics will help developers to find out and solve issues timely. Here I have mentioned some metrics, which are imperative to deliver a top-notch business app.

Crashes

App crashes are a big loss for any business. To retain customers for long time and to pull them back for more, it is crucial to avoid the crashes. Here are a few things you need to consider while tracking crash metrics.

  • Number of crashes
  • Which OS crashes are more frequent
  • Which all devices the app is crashing
  • Number of handled exceptions the app generates

Uptime

Uptime is nothing but the percentage of the app time that did not experience a crash. It is one of the key factors in app monitoring because apps having an uptime less than 99% are considered not competitive in the public app stores. 47% of apps have an uptime less than 99%.

App monitoring

Responsiveness

Users vote for fast and quick accessing apps. App responsiveness determines the speediness of apps, indicating how fast the apps respond to user interface events. If the app responsiveness score is high, it results in high app latency and leads to frustration of the user. To satisfy customers, the app responsiveness score should be less than 1 second.

It just takes a second for users to give your app a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. Hence, app monitoring is equally important as app designing and developing. Monitor your app continually to achieve success in your business. Only a dedicated service provider can track these metrics and ensures your app success post-launch.

Vmoksha methodology emphasizes hand-in-hand collaboration with the client and provides high-quality application support services to help customers minimize risk, reduce cost, and improved ROI from their IT applications.
