TARGIT Decision Suite 2015 makes it affordable and achievable to become a data-driven organization
With the launch of Decision Suite 2015, TARGIT brings to the forefront our mission to make it affordable and manageable to become a data-driven organization. Little by little we’ve given you sneak peeks into the new features of Decision Suite 2015 over the past month. All of these new features, improvements, and updates bring four key areas of improved business value to customers.

When we set out to update Decision Suite, we wanted to strengthen TARGIT’s role in delivering the right data to every employee in order to make decisions faster, more efficiently, and more intelligently than ever before. And we think we’ve hit the ball out of the park.

Improved mobile capabilities and tools, consolidated data discovery, new objects for better data visualization, a sleek new look and feel, and powerful data governance all sound great, but what benefit exactly do they bring your company?

TARGIT Decision Suite

Benefit 1: Fully integrated access to external data sources for new perspectives for every business user.

Companies already analyze external data, but most must use an external analytics tool in addition to their enterprise BI solution. Where’s the efficiency in that? With data volume continually expanding, decision-makers must be able to analyze their performance and company health against external factors. And they have to be able to do it fast.

As TARGIT Product Manager Peter Ørum has already written about, TARGIT makes it possible to analyze external data against internal company data in a single, cohesive platform. Decision Suite 2015 introduces a consolidation of all the data discovery tools available within TARGIT. With Decision Suite 2015, users can analyze not only Excel and other flat files not found within the data warehouse, but external and big data sources such as global weather data, Twitter feeds, Google Analytics, and much more in one completely connected tool. 

Benefit 2: Insight is activated throughout the organization.

Every organization has BI users who need to be informed, but don’t want to get bogged down in the details of the data. With average attention span now shorter than ever, data must be presented in a way that is not only visually engaging, but tells the story of the data in a way that can be processed by viewers in eight seconds or less.

Dashboards and analyses are not one-size-fits-all. TARGIT Decision Suite makes is simpler for users to get the data they need in the format that works best for them with the lightweight client (TARGIT Anywhere) that delivers data to the everyday users from within the platforms they are already working in most. Additionally, Decision Suite 2015’s updated mobile BI client enhances the ability to reach users of all BI levels anywhere at any time with powerful, easily digestible dashboards and powerful collaboration features allowing sharing of insights accompanied with annotation and voice memos.

Imagine having the ability to immediately take action on a finding such as a drop of website visitors by sharing the insight with your recommended course of action directly from the TARGIT app on your mobile device.

Benefit 3: Play it safe with improved data governance and enterprise user administration.

A truly data-driven organization has set data free to decision-makers throughout the organization. Robust data governance is needed to ensure data is only ever seen by those who are meant to see it. The newest release of TARGIT Decision Suite 2015 caters better than ever to the dual demands of IT and business users through governed roll-out of enterprise data.

This enhanced enterprise management is especially critical when running large numbers of users and roles across the organization. TARGIT Decision Suite 2015 makes it easier and more secure than ever to enforce quality control of enterprise data, no matter how many users or roles have access. Trust your data is in the right hands.

Additionally, we have added the functionality to define start-up dashboards by role and user. This means you can align the entire organization towards the same common goal by defining and communicating the most important KPIs all the way down to the single individual. In other words, you can push a start-up dashboard to your warehouse manager, which causes him to look at the overall order fulfillment rate, shipped orders per hour, and average pickings per picker immediately when he opend TARGIT.

Benefit 4: Engaging new look and feel.

TARGIT has always been recognized for best-in-class in usability and self-service analytics, and we constantly strive to make the general aesthetics of the software reflect that. As you saw in the preview, Decision Suite 2015 introduces a number of new visualization options so the individual decision-maker can view their data in new ways. It is our goal to ensure the information that is presented throughout companies is always easily comprehensible. A number of new features, including the platform’s sleek, modern new look make it easier than ever to format dashboards and analyses for personal and company-wide consumption.
