Daisy-TARGIT collaboration project develops “Sentinel” technology

The Daisy-TARGIT collaboration project “Optimizing Business Intelligence With Sentinels” has developed a new technology, called Sentinels. Sentinels provide early warnings about potential changes in critical business measures, like revenue. This is based on discovering how changes in measures of activity close to the customers/users, e.g., number of customer complaints or number of negative blog entries, have previously resulted in changes in the critical business measures. The Sentinels technology has just shipped in TARGIT BI Suite 2K9 that was released on April 21, 2009. Feedback from the Danish launch events for TARGIT BI Suite 2K9 shows that many TARGIT partners found Sentinels to be the most valuable new feature.
