CGI Advantage® Business Intelligence

Turning data into intelligence

In today’s world of readily available information at the click of a mouse, citizens are expecting more from their government than ever before. In response, state and local governments are looking for ways to aggregate data from multiple sources to increase productivity and measure performance while also communicating this information to their citizens.

CGI Advantage helps state and local governments turn distributed information into value-added knowledge with both our standard infoAdvantage solution that is delivered with CGI Advantage ERP and Enterprise Intelligence360®, which offers enhanced capabilities.

infoAdvantage provides integrated access to financial, human resources, procurement and budgeting information. The solution allows for configurable reporting and dashboard options and access to information anytime and anywhere through mobility. CGI Advantage clients are achieving their goals and lowering total cost of ownership through:

  • Delivered data warehousing that accelerates the use and distribution of business intelligence
  • Reduction in needed maintenance  since changes to reports and dashboards can be done without customization of code
  • Standard reports that apply state and local government best practices, including a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) module, that reduce the significant effort required to create government specific reports
  • Web-enabled query and reporting enables decentralization in accessing information
  • Google-like search capabilities allow for a broad set of users to obtain information in a timely and efficient manner
  • Mobile access to business intelligence information

Enterprise Intelligence360 (EI360) takes the features provided in infoAdvantage one step further. EI360 combines industry-leading business intelligence (BI) tools and best practices to integrate data from disparate sources into a unified information system that supports departmental and enterprise needs. With business intelligence and analysis tools drawing from all databases, legacy systems and new applications across the enterprise, governments increase transparency, productivity and performance measurement while also reducing operating costs.

Additional EI360 features include:

  • Allows finance and budget departments to pull together data from their ERP solutions and other sources to increase accuracy and timeliness of financial reporting
