How active data can lead to better decisions
In the past twelve years, SCOPEinsight has collected over a million data points about agribusinesses through over five thousand assessments. To display this data, we have partnered with the software company Qlik and created the SCOPEinsight Business Intelligence Platform.
Qlik: A master of data visualization
Qlik is a software company that provides a business intelligence (BI) platform for active data. They believe that too many organizations are using “passive” BI, which relies on historical data and is less able to actively help users in the moment. To counter this trend, Qlik offers Active Intelligence, which provides up-to-date actionable data that can easily be used to make business decisions. This allows organizations to make the best decisions with the most updated data and insights, and it helps close the gap between data and action. Qlik’s platforms are specifically designed to be user-friendly for anyone, regardless of skill level, so everyone can benefit from the data and insights.
The benefits of actionable data for decision making
Data allows organizations to make more confident decisions with better outcomes. With data, you can use past performance to determine the likelihood that your decisions will lead to positive results. This allows organizations to be more confident about the decisions they make, since they are based on trusted information. The confidence in these decisions is earned, as data-driven decisions tend to lead to better outcomes. For instance, a 2011 study found that large firms who use data-driven decision making tend to have 5-6% higher output and productivity than those who do not.
A partnership for impressive Business Intelligence
SCOPEinsight has been gathering agribusiness data since 2010, which has resulted in over a million data points. To make this data actionable, SCOPEinsight and Qlik have been working together since 2019 to provide SCOPEinsight’s Business Intelligence Platform. The current BI Platform is designed by SCOPEinsight and hosted by Qlik. Thanks to a secure connection between the SCOPEinsight database and the Qlik platform, all SCOPE data can be displayed on the BI Platform, alongside real-time benchmarking that is updated daily.
Through the Qlik platform and services, SCOPE data is displayed on multiple pages designed by our in-house BI team. These pages include easy-to-read, visually pleasing graphs and charts, which are made through Qlik with specified data from SCOPEinsight. On each page, you can select specific projects or agribusinesses to display. These selections can also be bookmarked and shared for future convenience.
By having all the data in one place, the BI Platform makes it easy to use data for reporting or decision making. For example, capacity builders can easily see which (sub)dimensions of professionalism require the most improvement. The real-time data also allows for up-to-date, trustworthy benchmarking. Through our partnership with Qlik, our clients have complete access to their data, which lets them make the best data-driven decisions for better solutions, better businesses, and better lives.
