Hemanta Banerjee, Founder & DirectorOf late, there has been a paradigm shift in the industry with analytics getting impacted with the consumerization as with other technologies like Cloud and mobile. The decisions for Business Intelligence (BI) and Business Analytics (BA) are now made by Line of Business (LOB) owners trying to use analytics to make themselves be more effective rather than IT. They recognize the well-defined features of Oracle solutions to gain the desired analytics outcomes. However, the lack of IT expertise may cause hindrance in translating the software capabilities into realized business requirement and also ensure to get maximum benefit from implementations. This is where Just Analytics comes into the picture with its deep technology expertise coupled with methodology of prototyping and standardization of Oracle solution implementations to meet customer needs.
Being an Oracle Gold Partner, the company works closely with Oracle’s field representatives and solution consultants to ensure that we implement solutions in a manner that is in line with how the product was designed to work. “We are with the product development and oracle field team through beta programs, and are among the first partners to test and validate their new solutions, and provide feedback to them based on real customer scenarios,” says Hemanta Banerjee, Founder, and Director of Just Analytics. “This has offered us the expertise in Oracle solution implementations, and orienting them towards fulfilling the business objectives.”
Leveraging Oracle technology, Just Analytics implements the latest technologies such as Exalytics, Oracle 12c In-memory data warehouse and Oracle Spatial/Locator technologies. “With Spatial analytics we have helped one of the Telco companies in ASEAN region to optimize their distribution network—helping them understand the revenue by area and setting up stores and towers based on coverage,” explains Hemanta.
For a leading shipping company in Singapore, Just Analytics delivered financial budgeting, operational analytics and financial reporting in a multi-phase implementation.
