Pros: DRK Research provides Supply Chain redesign solutions that improve operational efficiency. Discover Analytics (DA) is a key component in most of DRK's delivered solutions. Our solutions drive decision making to lower levels in an organization for improved efficiency. DA gives front line workers information at their fingertips to make the right decision. DA, based on MS Excel, offers a recognizable user interface and requires only an hour or two of training. Unlike most BI tools we evaluated, DA does not require a background in statistics to gain insight from the data. Intuitive drop down menus give users the abiltiy to slice and dice data to obtain needed information. DA links to a our "cloud" database of real-time supply and demand data. All members of the supply chain network have access to this common database which maintains a single version of the "truth". DA provides the analytics and reporting that empowers better decision making and improves operational efficiency.

Cons: We use DA to provide dashboards and alerts for our customers. Dashboards include KPIs that our users help define. Currently, DA provides basic bar chart and line chart displays, but more sophisticated graphical representations of data could enhance the insight users get from their data. It is our understanding that On Demand Analysis (ODA) recognizes this need and is enhancing DA to include more comprehensive visual representations of data.

Overall: DRK believes that Discover Analytics is a BI tool for the masses, and as such, fits our target market exactly. By building a BI tool on MS Excel, ODA has created a familiar platform for accessing and undertanding BI information. By linking DA to a common, live, back end database, ODA has overcome the fundamental problem of using spreadsheets for multi-user applications. DA achieves multi-dimensional analysis through an easily understood set of drop down menus to select the parameters of interest. Reporting is fast, and data is updated in real-time, Our customer users find features such as copy out, filtering, charting and "favorites" to be valuable in understanding and distributing the information they discover from their business processes. For bringing BI to the "masses", we have found no better tool on the market.
