Our Vision

To impact organisations globally through actionable business intelligence anywhere, anytime on any device.

Welcome to B2IT, your International Qlik Specialist.

The practice of business intelligence (BI) has suffered for many years from the pretence that the information needs of business users can be predicted in advance. Much of what BI delivers is predetermined. Data is extracted from many sources, consolidated into a data warehouse, and recomputed into answers. At the end, you get a dashboard or report that shows you what you wanted.

An example could be sales by region. But what invariably happens is once the data is presented it leads to more questions. If sales are down in the west, you need to know why. You need to see sales by representative and product, but typically, the dashboard or report can only show you what you originally asked for. If you want to ask additional questions or see new insights you must go back to IT and ask them to add exactly what you want to the report or dashboard.

What is needed is a dashboard with the power to ask and answer any question on the fly. In other words, if you can think it, you should be able to act on it. This would put business users in the driver’s seat, with profound implications for any organization. Instead of information pushed to the business user in a predetermined way, the right kind of dashboard would allow users to pull information spontaneously based on a conversational process of analysis.

We use the following tools are used for BI:

QlikView is used for Guided Analytics which entails the preparation of business applications. This includes developers creating detailed applications and playing close attention to:

data model,
general layout,
charts, and
formulae.

The applications are thereafter delivered to end-users; the end-users can view and navigate through the data in order to find information; namely, questions and answers.

Qlik Sense is a modern tool similar to QlikView; however, the end-users are given more freedom to create their own layout and visualisations (which is more limited with the QlikView tool). The user is more engaged and active; this is especially useful if the developer has no idea what the user wants to see. The Self-service experience of data discovery is responsive; therefore it is convenient for various sized touch screens and devices.

NPrinting is an advanced reporting application that is used by organisations to create, modify and deliver automated reports based on Qlik data and analytics. NPrinting is able to be converted to various software programs, filtered to create reports relevant to various individuals and has a scheduling interface that enables you to initiate tasks to refresh all your Qlik data and then populate your report templates with new data. Reporting has never been easier.

Qlik Connectors enable you to gather and combine data from applications, spreadsheets, custom sources and websites. This ensures that you get a holistic insight into your data so that you can make informed decisions.

Qlik Datamarket helps you find and manage data from external sources so that you can cross reference important data. Understanding data relationships and associations is crucial for today's competitive markets, especially if you are wanting an advantage over your competitors.

Analyse geo-data with Qlik GeoAnalytics. Add maps to your visualisations to reveal crucial hidden geographic information.

Qlik Analytics Platform enables you to build and integrate engaging visual analytics. We can empower your organisation with the ability to understand data and translate it into easy-to-read visuals.

Customer Endorsements

  • African Barrick Gold have been using B2IT since 2010 to develop, implement and support Qlik business models.  From the initial meetings, I could gather that B2IT had excellent product knowledge and skill sets to provide the business with a comprehensive solution for their business intelligence needs.  B2IT becomes entrenched in your business from the very beginning.  Their developers work with the process leads and ensures that the Models represent the business requirements accurately and, more importantly, that the process leads can derive benefit immediately from Qlik.

    We have achieved overnight success with the Supply Chain models developed by B2IT. Managing sites based in Tanzania from Johannesburg can be a challenge, especially with no visibility into the business. The Qlik models developed by B2IT has given us visibility into the business and has allowed us to make informed decisions. Just one of the models have helped the business achieve a saving of $16 million in a 4 month period. The business is now being managed on KPI’s developed and tracked on QlikView.  I cannot imagine the business without the Qlik and the B2IT teams. We have come so far in a short period with Qlik and we could not have done it without the overwhelming service and support from B2IT… Sanjay Singh (SC Systems & Process Manager)

  • Taking control of your data and using it in a structured, uniform way within the organisation is the key to good decision making. Less (quantity) accurate and relevant reports improve efficiency and quality of decision taking. Qlik provided us with the key to enable us to clean up our data and to understand the gaps in our business processes across divisions. The quick and easy implementation is an important factor to take into account. Flexibility is key as your business is evolving daily. The implementation partner in any BI tool is key to the success of the project...Frans Olivier (CFO)

  • B2IT's understanding of the FMCG industry and their specialist knowledge and experience in implementing Qlik applications enabled us to improve our insights generation and decision making. The combination of a service provider who is a true partner for growth and a best in class product is hard to find. Together they have played a critical role in our success over the last 3 years since implementation...Louis Opperman (General Manager)

  • I have worked with B2IT over the last 4 years, the value they have added to our enterprise is astounding. I have been exposed to 6 different partners during this time.

    I chose to work with B2IT because of their commitment. This is reflected in the high quality work as well as their unrivalled dedication to customer support. Their honesty and integrity makes me comfortable to recommend them to anyone in the market....Mark Flascas

  • Auercon was formed in 2009 through the merger of three consulting engineering firms in South Africa and Australia.

    For the merger to succeed, it was vitally important to enable the accurate provision of integrated, global management information of the newly formed group as quickly as possible. To achieve this, different systems and database sources had to be combined to enable meaningful reporting and analysis. Although the group already had a very strong development team, development of the required reporting capability utilising existing resources would have taken too long.

    Aurecon subsequently researched the market and appointed B2IT to implement QlikView. Their assistance was excellent, especially with regard to enabling the compilation of complicated and non-standard reports. Since the merger, B2IT has assisted Aurecon to expand its reporting capability to include the majority of its management reports, as well as enabled the development team to be self-sufficient. Their assistance has been invaluable…. Dawie Kotzé (CIO)
