Enabling Business Intelligence

BI:Axis is a Java application framework designed to perform business intelligence tasks. BI:Axis provides a combination of features typically found in a variety of tools, such as ETL, and reporting tools.

BI:Axis is a unified series of components specifically designed to perform BI functions, executed under a framework engineered for efficient data manipulation.

Use BI:Axis to:

  • Create reports requiring complex processing or multiple steps
  • Combine data from multiple sources
  • Automate data acquisition
  • Distribute reports in various formats
  • Generate interfaces for other applications
  • Create portable data stores for targeted reporting and analysis
  • Integrate external processes to incorporate functionality you already have
  • Integrate disparate systems

Combine BI:Axis with BI:Scope and BI:Prompt to provide a complete business intelligence solution, or an extension to an existing solution.
