Organisations use an average of 3.2 Business Intelligence (BI) tools because typically each department has chosen something that specifically suits their needs.

As a decision maker you need to be able bring together the value and data from all of the different BI systems to complete the entire analytics story for your organisation without asking departments to give up what they are currently using, especially if there has been a considerable investment.    

Theia® is a tool designed to integrate and harmonize multiple BI tools where you can integrate and analyse different content from different BI tools in one single platform.

 Some of Theia’s benefits and features:

  1. Expand your investment...Theia lets you leverage data in new ways from all the BI tools in your organisation
  2. Save on training & development costs to get users familiarised with different tools when you expose content from all your analytics systems in Theia instead.
  3. Get to your data faster with one access portal for all your data and analytics  platforms so you can keep up with consumer and market demands.

Theia can Help you harmonizing systems like:

  • IBM Cognos BI & Cognos Analytics
  • Tableau
  • IBM Cognos TM1
  • Power BI
  • Quik
  • SAP Business Objects
  • Sharepoint
  • Google
  • SSRS
  • Etc. (2)

Another great benefit of Theia is bridging from one BI tool to another without any remodelling, redevelopment, or rework required! In other words, you can use Theia to consume content from one BI tool to another BI tool. For example, expose your data from IBM Cognos Analytics packages in Power BI.  This eliminates any cost, time, or effort associated with the need to remodel/redevelop the BI content from one system to the other.

Fast to implement. It’s a quick and fluid way to deliver information from all of your platforms.

You've made a significant investment in IBM Cognos or other enterprise platforms (such as Power BI, Tableau, or Qlik) that have a controlled, vetted layer of data that gets delivered to your end users. But your users are also onboarding other systems that can deliver data for insights in a variety of ways. Theia can pull existing reporting assets (queries, reports, model items, etc) and metadata from Cognos and other tools into Theia itself as well as your platforms of choice to explore the stories within the data.

Theia is easy to use — focuses on the user experience

Theia uses the concepts of apps and gaming (dashboards, intuitive navigation etc) to create an alluring way of interacting with critical information and brings multiple Business Intelligence tools and assets into a single-entry point, giving IT enterprise security, and users appealing visualisations. Theia is fun and easy to use.
