Data integration being the first step towards business intelligence faces hurdles like lack of focus towards automation, difficulties in drill-down reporting and discrepancies in business data.

Visualizing data
With visualization becoming highly competitive, constructing an environment for visualizing high volume data presents challenging problems in both modelling and computation. A database substrate for a visualization environment needs to support a semantic form of data to represent complex relationships with the provision of effective data manipulation. Some of the basic challenges are: Clutter, Performance, Information Loss, Limited Cognition, Colour Issues, Data manipulation issue and Representing Complex Relationships. PixCons Technologies makes the best of this fact and its solutions help create mobile, highly dynamic and interactive, role-based dashboards that are able to deliver trusted, finely presented and aggregated numbers to the decision makers, anytime and anywhere.

Visualization tools are transforming Business Intelligence and the challenge is: Visualizing a huge data. PixCons applies Sampling, Aggregation, Segmentation and Tuning before it comes up with the final report/dashboard. Every data set is a sample of some real phenomena and hence further sampling the data would not do any harm. The company uses aggregate queries and runs some queries of clustering algorithm. To cut down on the data for each segment, PixCons segments the data in layers like gender, revenue patterns, geographic areas, speed and habits. The company uses both creativity and analytics to make the picture in the mind reflect on the screen.

PixCons started its active operations only in 2013 and it has stood out with its innovative solutions. “Year 2015-2016 would bring immense challenges as we aim at being a Product based company by 2016 and hence we look forward for great challenges backed by great success,” concludes Srinivas.
