Praxis provides a wide range of business intelligence (BI) and data warehouse services, software and solutions. We primarily work with the Pentaho Business Analytics platform to deliver BI solutions. We also deliver solutions using Microsoft products, particularly Excel and PowerPivot.
Our solutions are all database technology-agnostic: we can deliver solutions using both open-source and proprietary DBMS, and relational and columnar or analytic databases (SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB and Infobright).
For both database and BI platforms, we offer solutions using Enterprise or community solutions. (Enterprise solutions attract an annual subscription with guaranteed support whilst community editions provide fewer features, have no subscription fee and usually require more support from us and your staff.)
We employ dedicated data scientists. These specialist staff members can work effectively with data at scale, and can help you ask the right questions and consume the results of analyses of (big) data effectively.
Our base solutions incorporate socio-economic data covering South Africa. When you get a BI solution from Praxis, you get a data warehouse preloaded with this data. Thus you can immediately overlay your information with South African socio-economic data on maps, charts and spreadsheets, which is useful for both companies and government.
Pentaho provides a full spectrum of open-source BI capabilities, including reporting, analyses, dashboards, data mining and data integration. Praxis is the oldest Pentaho reseller in Africa and we provide consultancy, data warehouse development, staffing and training solutions for Pentaho Enterprise Edition software, and first-level support for Pentaho Enterprise Edition subscriptions throughout Africa.
