Analytics

// noun

EN Searching for your keys in your messy car is nothing like finding a Siberian tiger on the Sikhote Alin mountain in the Russian Far East. (whut?) You're searching for 2 completely different objects, in different environments and with different methods. Now, keep that in mind and compare this to companies today, where even more different types of information can be found in so many different environments and are stored in so many different ways. That makes extracting relevant outcome out of all this intel in a quick way is almost impossible. Now imagine you could get access to the information in a quick and easy way and thus reveal the business opportunities you need. Wouldn't that be great? This way, you could add certainty and predictability into your decision-making process. And that's exactly what ANALYTICS software can provide for you. It can organise, store and use all of the information spread throughout your organisation and provide customised intelligence to gain fast insight and more relevance.


NL Je sleutels zoeken in je rommelige auto is lang niet hetzelfde als een Siberische tijger zoeken in de Sichote-Alingebergte in de Russische Far East. (Say What?) Je zoekt naar 2 compleet verschillende dingen, in verschillende omgevingen en met verschillende methodes. Hou die gedachte even bij en vergelijk dat met bedrijven vandaag, waar je nog meer verschillende types informatie vindt, in zoveel verschillende settings en die op zoveel verschillende manieren worden bewaard. Dat maakt het natuurlijk bijna onmogelijk om snel relevante output uit al deze data te vissen. Beeld je nu in dat je toch snel en eenvoudig toegang kunt krijgen tot die info en je zo de zakelijke opportuniteiten voor jouw business kunt blootleggen. Klinkt goed? Je zou je beslissingsproces zo kunnen opblinken met zekerheid en wat voorspelbaarheid. Wel, dat is nu exact wat ANALYTICS-software kan doen voor jou. Het kan alle informatie die doorheen je organisatie verspreid ligt, organiseren, bewaren en gebruiken. Het voorziet je van gepersonaliseerde ‘intel’ om daarmee snelle inzichten en meer relevantie te behalen.

What's with this lexicon?

Digital transformation, Artificial intelligence, Robots takings our jobs, ... my GOD what a scary time we live in! Right? No, not really. We live in a very exciting time of endless possibilities, of genius new answers to questions we haven’t even been able to formulate... Some people just want to make good money by starting a fire and then being hired to put it out. We don’t like that at Bagaar. No apocalyptic vibes for us, we’re too zen for that.

The intelligence game will be won by those who know how to ask & answer questions critically.

Technology is evolving at a crazy pace, absolutely, and sometimes it might be a bit mindblowing, but don’t worry, humans are still the writers of this story, we decide how it goes. At Bagaar we help our clients every day to gear up for any technological challenge they may be up to, we have a very big toolbox of digital answers to their problems and are very happy to help them in writing their own story. This time we wanted to do something not only for our clients but for everyone, our moms, the guy at the busstop, politicians, journalists, whoever may be helped with a little free knowledge.

Core message here: Trojan: Nice for the greeks, not for you.

So, we wrote this lexicon in the assumption that if people would have more information, and a bit of guidance, they wouldn’t have to feel so helpless when hearing about Digital transformation, MVP’s, Frontend, AWS, Trojans, UX, UI, ... (Que?) We assembled all the buzzwords we use on a daily basis and tried to give a down to earth, simple explanation for each of them. Take it with you, read through it when you’re waiting on a train or getting your nails done and next time somebody starts a fire, you just blow it out yourself (or if it’s too big call Bagaar).

So, you just talked to a developer and didn’t understand any of the words he/she used? If those words aren’t in our lexicon yet, we’ll translate them to human language for you.
