Dexton, a Dutch software company, has filed their Agile System Environment for patent, which integrates business intelligence and back office systems and enables business intelligence to become ‘actionable’.
Agile System Environment (ASE) integrates unstructured data (rough information which is processed by BI software) and structured data and allows these two data types to communicate and to create output and actions. ASE puts Dexton at least a year and a half ahead of business intelligence (BI) companies such as Business Objects, Cognos and SAS.
Actionable BI places the reporting and analysis directly in the company’s workflow process. By integrating BI components with back office systems in the ASE, Actionable BI provides direct support to daily tasks and operational analysis. This unique patented solution is an end-to-end solution that makes intelligence highly applicable in practice. Directly from the BI application, data can be adapted, a campaign can be started or workflow management can be applied. ‘What if’ scenarios will be made possible and business processes will be optimized.
Jos Halkus, CEO of Dexton, said: We are proud to be the first to have a solution that enables Actionable BI. We know this is the next generation in Business Intelligence and look forward to bringing it to the market.
