Each day, we turn to a Google search for details related to specific jobs or information regarding current or potential clients. Upon pressing “Enter” on our keyboards, we’re presented with a wealth of information from numerous sources, some of which we may know and trust, many of which we don’t. But what happens if we’re looking for Gilbane-specific data about the item we’re searching?
This is where Hyper-Intelligence comes into play.
Hyper-Intelligence is about making data available to our staff, everywhere, so that it is convenient, from sources they trust, and personalized to their role within the company.
Let’s go back to that Google search. To learn Gilbane-specific information on the client or project we’re searching, we would have to interrupt what we are doing, navigate to another database or platform, such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM) or a dashboard, and then interpret the mass of data that has been compiled and stored. Let’s pause on that for a moment. To get the full set of data, we are stopping what we are doing to then go somewhere else to find an answer. Typically, only about 30% of the population are hard core data folks and will take the time to do this, and that is just not enough for the enterprise of the future.
We are setting out to change that dynamic so analytics is simple, convenient and something everyone uses to make informed decisions about our business, regardless of position within the company. To empower our teams and expand our data usage, we’ve partnered with MicroStrategy to help put all our data in the hands of our employees at any given time.
Becoming an Enterprise of the Future with Hyper-Intelligence
Using Microstrategy’s Hyper framework, we can seamlessly present our intelligence – about customers, products, people and more – directly in the applications people use every day without re-coding or re-building any of them. Gaining access to this knowledge is a simple mouse over of highlighted words or phrases to bring up predefined KPIs. Applications instantly become more informative and valuable in helping teams achieve their objectives.
We are pioneering the use of data analytics and Hyper-Intelligence in construction and it’s opening an entirely new world of possibilities.
