Business Intelligence

CSCI regularly surprises our customers with our ability to design customized business intelligence solutions with efficient, scalable architectures, making it possible to access disparate data and obtain answers to mission-critical questions.

Some of our notable business intelligence implementations include the development of executive dashboards and financial reporting tools for Federal and State agencies.

For example, CSCI assisted the Business Transformation Agency in developing an Executive Dashboard for the Undersecretary of Defense Comptroller. This business intelligence tool displays financial performance metrics of a $3.4 trillion budget. Due to its enormous success, the project was featured on CNN (View Video) and in the Washington Post (View Article) for its innovation and complexity.

As another example, CSCI introduced business intelligence technologies to the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT). We developed INDOTAnswers, an executive dashboard utilized to improve project and fiscal tracking practices.
