BIQ - Power Tools for the Data Analyst

Company

 
Founded in 2003, BIQ is based on a simple premise: business analysts need a powerful transactional data analysis tool that they can operate on their own.

BIQ is privately held and has been profitable since 2005. The BIQ product is in active use by multiple onshore and offshore consulting companies, both large and small; their use of BIQ on behalf of their clients constitutes a primary lead-generation channel.

Most customers build at least one A/P dataset, but the vast majority of BIQ datasets are not built from A/P data. Some customers have built 35 or more datasets, using widely varying data sources within the enterprise, including invoices, phone records, repair records, sales and marketing information, HR data, and so on. Thus, a substantial percentage of BIQ revenue comes from use of the product in areas outside what analysts would term "conventional" spend analysis. We see this trend continuing, since every company has a treasure trove of data that is at best only poorly analyzed, and much of that data resides outside of the A/P or ERP system.

BIQ believes strongly that the real value of data analysis tools comes from high power and maximum flexibility, and that a conventional "data warehouse" approach to transactional data analysis cannot support the information demands of the modern enterprise.

BIQ Is Now an Opera Solutions Company

Opera Solutions, an international leader in Big Data analytics with extensive experience in spend analysis, has acquired BIQ. This investment by Opera Solutions is part of an initiative to expand Opera Solutions’ procurement and spend intelligence capabilities. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Opera Solutions, BIQ will continue to provide its clients with the ability to rapidly build, leverage, disassemble, and reconstruct spend cubes of all types.

"The hard part was keeping my clients in their chairs. Every time I would demonstrate some of the functionality they would get up, and say 'so and so has to see this', then race out and bring back various department heads."
