Business Intelligence and Big Data Analytics
Big data analytics helps organizations harness their data and use it to identify new opportunities. That, in turn, leads to smarter business moves, more efficient operations, higher profits and happier customers.
The benefits that big data analytics brings to the table, however, are speed and efficiency. Whereas a few years ago a business would have gathered information, run analytics and unearthed information that could be used for future decisions, today that business can identify insights for immediate decisions. The ability to work faster – and stay agile – gives organizations a competitive edge they didn’t have before.
As a forward-looking business intelligence consultancy, Nihka helps organisations make better datadriven decisions in complex environments. Our highly trained consultants work closely with clients to provide tailored advice and support, including selecting the best data warehousing technologies for their needs and implementing the most appropriate project management methodologies to adopt these tools successfully.
Fraud Management Solutions
Nihka Consulting has partnered with SAS to implement a Fraud Management Framework and Application at a client. The application allows the customer to understand fraud and risk behaviour across multiple lines of business. The application makes use of powerful advanced analytics on a single enterprise platform. The platform allows you to score 100 percent of transactions and authorizations in real time to better combat enterprise payments fraud.
The application allows for flexible alerts and case management and can save clients millions in revenue.
Threats to sensitive and private information come in many different forms, such as malware and phishing attacks, identity theft and ransomware. To deter attackers and mitigate vulnerabilities at various points, a company must implement multiple security controls in line with the corporate information security strategy.
Nihka Consulting have consultants that are ISO 27000 certified that have successfully implemented solutions that help organizations manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties.
We work closely with alliance partners to implement these standards and associated information security technologies
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
In addition to legislative requirements, the need for Business Continuity Management (BCM) is made evident by numerous types of outages that can cripple a business and lead to significant loss of revenue, hamper the delivery of services and cause loss of market share and damage reputation.
As defined by the Business Continuity Institute, BCM is a holistic management process that identifies potential impacts that threaten an organization and provides a framework for building resilience and the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders and value creating activities.
Disaster Recovery plans which involves a set of policies, procedures and tools to enable the recovery or continuation of vital technology infrastructure and systems are done in conjunction with business continuity plans.
Nihka Consulting are extremely skilled at the development and implementation of disaster recovery and business continuity plans.
Nihka Consulting received an award for Excellence from the Eskom Board for the successful implementation of their disaster recovery plans. The project was successfully completed with no downtime to systems.
Nihka Consulting have created customized software and apps for clients to meet their unique business needs. From vehicle tracking through to an internal communications app, we have automated business processes, managed data and produced software that integrates with your existing technologies.
We use a variety of methodologies in our approach from Agile through to DevOps but always collaborating with the client to find the best possible fit.
