Have Governed Data Available Across Applications with Minimal Effort

We’ve all been there. You have an application you use daily for operations, but when it comes down to clicking that submit button, you need that extra piece of information to make your decision. Turns out, that piece of information lies in another system, with its own login workflow and going to get it would require you to switch focus, possibly getting you out of “the zone”.

What if you could bring that information to you? What if you didn’t have to switch systems, login somewhere else, or do a search? What if that data came to you, was governed, and secured? Sounds unattainable doesn’t it? We’ll it’s not.

“With Perficient’s help, we’re empowering users with mission-critical data inside their workflows. All with minimal effort and zero clicks.” – Kris Jonczyk, Principal Scientist, AXA XL

With Perficient’s expertise and its vast array of partners, we have a way to do exactly that: enhance your operational workflows with your data, in place, without leaving your application. Here are some examples:

  • Navigating Salesforce and need information about how many insurance policies a specific client has with you? Put your mouse over the client’s name and get the numbers.
  • Reading an email about region productivity and need to understand who is covering that region? Click on the region and get the list of names.
  • Scrolling through a customer’s website and want to know how much sales you did with them last year? Just hover over their name and see that information.
  • You’re on your phone in a meeting and someone brings up a specific operational unit? Put their name in spotlight to instantly bring relevant KPIs.

Break through the paradigm of going to a reporting system and have the data come to your users instead. Increase user adoption, enable your decision makers with clean data across your operational systems even if your old web application does not have a sophisticated API.

Using MicroStrategy Hyper we have been successful in enabling all the above scenarios. Imagine you receive an email with the following text:

“I just had a meeting with Roberto Trevino and we’re going to go ahead with the project!”

Let’s say you want to know some facts about me that live on another system. How about having that available by hovering over my name? Try it now. Put your mouse over my name. Impressive, isn’t it? We can help you achieve this easily and quickly using your data. I know what you’re thinking: “…but my data is housed in X system, there is no way I can bring it from there.” You’d be surprised. MicroStrategy has 90+ datasources from which it can pull data, ranging from specific applications to open standards like JDBC, ODBC, REST, and even flat files like excel and csv.

Bring your old applications back to life by injecting live and governed data in real time. Contact Perficient today!
