Unified Decision-Making: Your Business Data Management Revolution, Made Easy


With data becoming the fabric of how everything connects, integrating diverse information systems poses a significant challenge for businesses in 2024 and beyond. Studies have shown that the average large company has between 200 and a whopping thousand separate information systems, creating a need for a unified data solution. Andrew Bosma, CTO for OQLIS, explains that being data intelligent addresses the challenges of disparate data, and sets out the standards on how businesses should manage their information.

The Challenge of Fragmented Data

Critical decision-making often involves gathering data from various systems, restructuring, and consolidating it manually. This can result in a fragmented perspective, complicating the accessibility, sharing, and analysis of vital information. Which could lead to computational expenses, redundant team tasks, diminished data accuracy, and heightened cybersecurity risks.

“OQLIS aims to unravel the maze of data complexities and provide businesses with a clear path to a single version of the truth,” says Bosma. He emphasises the specific goals OQLIS addresses: “It’s not just about creating dashboards; it’s about providing a comprehensive solution that tackles the underlying complexities of data management.” The OQLIS platform achieves this through modules with attributes beyond traditional reporting systems, delving into data engineering, storage, and data-driven business logic.

“In the world of business data, dashboards are just the tip of the iceberg. OQLIS offers modules that empower users to interact with data, trigger alerts based on business rules, and automate complex processes,” notes Bosma. The platform’s commitment to addressing the entire data lifecycle differentiates it from traditional reporting systems.

How can businesses address data segmentation? OQLIS believes the solution lies in one of their most powerful module releases yet:

The Unify Module: A Game Changer

The Unify module was born from the need to simplify integrations; OQLIS wanted to move beyond code fragmentation and provide a cohesive, managed, and monitored environment within the platform. By leveraging containerisation within Docker, users can now have a centralised place to manage integrations, bringing together API endpoints, databases, and any other source of data to provide the unified version of the truth in the programming language of their choice.

Besides Unify, users utilise Connection, Data Modelling, Explore, Dashboards, Components, Scheduling, Automation, IoT, and ML & AI. Andrew shares an example, “Our IoT module allows for seamless integration of external sensor data, positioning OQLIS as not just a reporting tool, but a platform for data-driven decision-making”.

“It’s more than a tool; it’s a solution that adapts to the evolving business data landscape. Our commitment to innovation and addressing the intricacies of data management positions us as pioneers in unified decision-making,” he concludes.

The Unify Module: A Game Changer

Bosma reflects on a pivotal moment of OQLIS’s development: “The Unify module was born out of a need to simplify integrations. We wanted to move beyond custom code and provide a seamless, monitored environment within the platform itself.” This module, leveraging Docker, allows users to run code directly within OQLIS, streamlining integrations and enhancing maintenance capabilities.

“2023 was a monumental year for OQLIS. We introduced core features and minor improvements, showcasing our commitment to constant development and refinement,” Bosma states. The platform’s deployment flexibility and enhanced monitoring capabilities underscore its adaptability to diverse business needs.

A Bright Future Vision

As OQLIS looks to the future, Bosma outlines upcoming features, including saved filters, customizable email templates, and quick dashboard copying. “Our vision is not just about solving immediate challenges but evolving into an Integrated and Predictive Data Application. We’re exploring micro-business apps, scenario planning, and multi-objective optimization,” he reveals.
