With years of specialty in BI Data Analytics and Digital Transformation, Explora is proud to unveil our first ever data analytics platform – Hummingbird Analytics Platform on 3rd May 2019. The platform is powered by Big Data, Machine Learning and AI Technologies, reaffirming our vision of bringing innovations in technology to our clients.
The Story Behind Hummingbird
Many people are wondering: Why would an IT consulting company come up with their own data analytics solution? Dora Tse, Director of Explora Consulting, explained that the inspiration behind is from the existing clients from different industries. “The major pain-point we see from working with them in the past 4 years is the Data Silo, the limited insight and analysis they have with their data using very limited sets of dimensions.” said Dora. “It takes weeks for business users to generate reports due to the complicated manual data preparation and cleansing work, making it difficult for them to collect and access their data. Worse still, it's hard to justify the discrepancy of analytics reports prepared or maintained by different users from various departments.” Intended to resolve all these BI pain-points business users are facing, Hummingbird Analytics Platform provides a quick-win and plug-n-play solution to help you access your data and get actionable insights in a timely manner. With Hummingbird, it takes less than 7 weeks for a project to roll out.
What makes Hummingbird different from other analytics tools?
“Hummingbird Analytics Platform is a secured, fast and adaptive solution which enables companies to leverage real-time insights and make informed business decisions.” said Dora. “It has a built-in repository with pre-defined data models to collect data from various source systems like POS, ERP, CRM and Accounting. Built on top of Microsoft Azure Cloud Services, our platform stores, validates and organizes all the data uploaded by clients to provide easy access to business users, and there will be no more data silo. Discrepancy in reports generated by different departments can also be minimized now as all the users are granted access to the same data source in Hummingbird.”
Hummingbird Analytics Platform also comes with sets of pre-defined analytics reports and dashboards organized by business topics to help you get started quickly and save your time in collecting, massaging and cleansing data. You can customize these reports to your preference or create your own reports and dashboards. With the use of Natural Language Understanding technology, you can even query your data or ask your questions using natural English.
In addition, Hummingbird Analytics Platform has embraced Machine Learning and AI Technologies, which enriches data understanding and brings more insights to companies. “Our data model covers the need of various industries such as Retail, Food & Beverage, Manufacturing, Logistics and more to come. The latest lineup showcases the Demand Forecasting analytics engine, and more other AI engines such as Inventory Optimization, Store Replenishment, Customer Behavior Analysis, Marketing Campaign Optimization, Workforce Analytics and Next Best Action are on the way,” Dora added.
Hummingbird Analytics Platform is available on a subscription basis. There are 4 subscription plans to choose from, depending on the data volume, the number of users, engine types and reporting capabilities available.
