Information Factory as a Service (IFaaS)
The process of turning data into information can be compared to a factory. You have raw materials in the form of data, work in progress in the form of integration and cleansing, then finished goods in the form of dashboards and analytics. Expecting someone to do this as a side job, just means they won’t have time for their real job.
Intricity can help you accomplish enterprise class integration with market leading business intelligence, in a turn key cloud solution.

The Data to Information Factory
For years, business departments have had to live in the hamster wheel of hand integrating data because they didn't have the resources to deliver conformed data across the various data sources. Hours of excel rework were just part of the daily backlog of required work to make business decisions. IT departments tasked with keeping the lights on have struggled to keep up with the constant demands of building an information factory from the raw data.
Won't buying a BI tool solve our problem?
Business Intelligence is part of the solution but its only about 20% of the equation. The real work is in the integrating and conforming the data. You know, the 50 tabs in excel that manipulate data which lead to tab 51 which has the answers. Getting those 50 tabs of data integration logic automated is where the real blood sweat and tears are spilled. Doing that hard work requires a committed team that lives and breathes data, and a data to information factory which can scale and adapt to a changing landscape.
What is IFaaS?
IFaaS stands for Information Factory as a Service. It's a combination of turnkey Intricity consulting services combined with an open cloud solution architecture. The end result is a conformed and consistent source of data to draw from as well as dashboards & analytics which you can run your business from. Additionally the conformed data is open to querying from BI tools which are outside of Intricity's architecture, enabling you to leverage it in a flexible manner.

Intricity prices the IFaaS by user and by source. We also have a count for API access if that is needed. There is a one time stand-up cost for new customers.
