Government contractors using Costpoint Business Intelligence

Complex and siloed data often present analytical challenges. You need analytics that are reliable enough to help you make informed business decisions, smart enough to find hidden patterns, and visually compelling enough to resonate with your stakeholders. Through the power of Costpoint Business Intelligence, you have the opportunity to break through the noise and see what’s driving your business.

The Competition

The majority of software companies offer a reporting capability of some fashion, but that doesn’t always mean it’s the best fit. Sure, larger organizations offer full-featured, robust analytics capabilities within their ERPs, but their built-in reports aren’t industry-specific, whereas Deltek's Costpoint BI solution offers the best of both worlds! Our BI solution provides complete and robust analytics with out-of-the-box reports and dashboards, specific to your government contracting and project intelligence needs.

Also, much smaller organizations offer reporting and analytics capabilities however, these offerings are not out-of-the-box and typically require a data dump into an external analytics application. With Costpoint BI, your data is securely stored in one location - all within Costpoint and shared by all teams, so there is no need to transfer the information from one location to another, ensuring data quality.

A Look Into the Future

That’s not all! With the launch of Costpoint 8, we will be expanding our BI capabilities to include Artificial Intelligence. AI is part of the next step in the BI journey, diving deeper into analysis with more visualizations that allow you to quickly comprehend, as well as slice and dice data.

These new features will enable you to predict what might happen, utilize history and forecasting tools to help you look into the future – for example, what your revenue will be and what staffing levels you will need to attain it. Meanwhile, the AI Assistant, powered by IBM’s Watson, will help you interpret data - pointing out issues and even prescribing a solution. The AI capability will provide consistency in your analysis, help prepare your data, reduce the learning curve and eliminate human bias – producing clear, impactful insights.
