Retail Analytics & Data Insights Practice

Analytics & BI Software

Javelin Group provides an independent view on market leading analytics software tools and Business Intelligence (BI) solutions.




Today’s omni-channel retailers generate large volumes of data about their customers, products, prices, stock levels and channels and few retailers make the most effective use of the insights this data can generate.

Recent breakthroughs in data analytics technology ensure that the coming retail era will be both nimble and smart, with tomorrow’s retailers supporting decision-making at all levels of the enterprise. This will transform all of the key retail disciplines, from category management to store management and from financial planning to customer insight, as all need to be based on fast, rigorous analysis and rational decision-making.

In response to this transformational change, Javelin Group is in partnership with the best-in-class software providers:

Our team of BI specialists will help recommend the tools that are right for your business:

  • Alteryx: Alteryx allows you to create an intuitive workflow for data blending and advanced analytics. All sources of transactional, customer, channel and spatial data can be analysed in one tool without requiring any specialist skills, empowering data analysts to deliver deeper insights in hours, not weeks.
  • Tableau: Tableau is a visual analytics tool that helps people see and understand data. It is used by more than 75,000 customer accounts worldwide, and delivers fast analytics and rapid-fire business intelligence. Visualisations and dashboards can be created in minutes, then shared in seconds, with no programming required.
