Ad Hoc Business Intelligence and Self-Service Reporting

Style Intelligence, InetSoft's flagship BI product, is a complete business intelligence suite, with a heavy focus on end-user self-service.

A large number of application software systems utilize 'production reporting.' These programs are bound by their limited access to a database through pre-programmed menus.

Style Intelligence, on the other hand, allows you to create specific, customized queries without in-depth IT knowledge. With this level of self-service, you can answer very targeted business questions that production report developers may not have even considered.

Ad Hoc analysis can be used to create new reports or drill deeper into created reports for additional detail.

How an Event Safety Manager Uses Ad Hoc Business Intelligence

An event safety manager plays a critical role in ensuring the well-being of attendees, staff, and participants during various events. Ad hoc business intelligence (BI) can significantly aid in this endeavor by providing timely and actionable insights to enhance safety measures and decision-making processes. Here's how an event safety manager can utilize ad hoc BI:

  1. Real-Time Monitoring: Ad hoc BI tools enable event safety managers to monitor various data sources in real-time, such as weather forecasts, attendee behavior patterns, and crowd movement. By analyzing this data on-the-fly, managers can identify potential safety risks and take proactive measures to mitigate them. For example, if sudden adverse weather conditions are predicted, the manager can quickly adjust outdoor event plans to ensure attendee safety.

  2. Risk Assessment: Ad hoc BI allows for quick analysis of historical data related to past events, incidents, and emergencies. By identifying patterns and trends, safety managers can conduct more accurate risk assessments for current events. This information can help in determining the necessary safety protocols, staffing levels, and resource allocations to minimize risks and ensure a safe environment for all attendees.

  3. Resource Optimization: Ad hoc BI tools enable event safety managers to optimize resource utilization by analyzing data related to staff availability, equipment deployment, and emergency response protocols. By identifying areas of inefficiency or potential bottlenecks, managers can make informed decisions to allocate resources more effectively, ensuring that sufficient personnel and equipment are available to handle any emergencies that may arise during the event.

  4. Emergency Response Planning: Ad hoc BI facilitates dynamic emergency response planning by providing up-to-date information on various factors such as crowd density, traffic congestion, and medical emergencies. This allows safety managers to adjust their response strategies in real-time to address emerging threats and ensure a coordinated and efficient response to any incidents.

  5. Compliance Monitoring: Ad hoc BI tools can help event safety managers ensure compliance with relevant safety regulations and guidelines by monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) in real-time. By tracking metrics such as crowd capacity, emergency response times, and incident rates, managers can identify areas where compliance may be lacking and take corrective actions to address any issues promptly.

  6. Post-Event Analysis: After the event, ad hoc BI can be used to conduct comprehensive post-event analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of safety measures and identify areas for improvement. By analyzing data on incident reports, attendee feedback, and emergency response times, managers can gain valuable insights into what worked well and what can be done better in future events to enhance safety and overall attendee experience.
