San Diego, CA (July 17, 2012)— 5x Technology, a growing IT solutions provider, and Centigon Solutions, a leader in location intelligence solutions, have teamed up to exclusively provide GMaps Plugin for SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards to government and military agencies.
Business Intelligence technology exists to transform raw data into valuable information used at all levels of any organization. A successful business intelligence implementation relies on a careful balance of process and technology to ensure “intelligent” business decisions are reached. Dashboards make business intelligence approachable for information consumers. All dashboard tools are packaged with controls for navigating and visualizing information, and may include maps.
Maps provide a powerful solution for assimilating the location of assets (people, customers, products, vehicles, etc) and/or areas (zones, regions, etc). As operational business intelligence and mobility become more important to providing near real time analysis, business users will need to monitor location based problems and opportunities.
“Through this partnership, and by adding the GMaps Plugin to the 5x Technology GSA schedule,” states Jeffrey Yefsky, 5x Technology CEO, “we are now able to offer our government and military clients the flexibility of adding interactive data visualization for business intelligence to create geographic analysis and help drive decisions.”
Location intelligence and mapping is becoming increasingly important for business intelligence customers as 80% of their data has a location attribute. The challenge of consuming and rationalizing this location data is now achieved using technologies like GMaps Plugin, which seamlessly combines business data from SAP BusinessObjects with a rich Google Maps user experience.
By utilizing 5x Technology’s strong relationships with government agencies, “said Ryan Goodman, founder and CEO of Centigon Solutions, “we can now offer these customers best of breed tools to create geographic visualization for locating assets, tracking events, and uncovering location based trends not possible with standard BI tools.
GMaps Plugin and SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards together provided the perfect data visualization and discovery experience for every-day web users to explore their world population across multiple demographics, time frames, and assumptions. As dashboard technologies evolve on premise, in the cloud and on our mobile devices, location-based intelligence is one of the keys to unlocking the true potential of operational business intelligence.
