Planning & Analytics Systems for Power BI and SQL Server
Acterys was founded in 2015 by Martin Kratky and Dr. Hesam Ziaei. After more than 20 years implementing analytics & planning solutions with nearly all major technologies they saw opportunities by providing a unified platform that offers:
Single data platform
We realized that the traditional approach separating data warehousing, planning and reporting into different siloes that all use different data storage with immense efforts for their respective maintenance and “moving data around” is no longer viable.
Benefits of the Cloud
Before we started Acterys most analytics/planning projects were implemented on premise requiring lengthy installations, qualified experts on site and extensive maintenance efforts. Our objective with Acterys was, to provide users with an as much as possible, ready made environment within minutes that automatically builds optimal data models, reports and planning functionality.
Analytics & Planning Combined
Since 2015 we have seen the unstoppable rise of self-service analytics solutions like Power BI. These solutions provide unparalleled analytics option but lack the ability for write-back and planning. Analytics typically inspire the analyst to create and simulate new scenarios and adapt plans. Acterys offers seamless capabilities to run planning, consolidation and corporate performance processes seamlessly integrated with the most advanced visualisation and analytics features.
