A story for those excited about data but don't know from where to start or those hoping for a more accessible alternative to BI Tools.
Either you run the business, or the business runs you.
We started Lexer in 2018 not because we like data analysis tools, BI tools, data analytics & visualization tools... call them whatever you'd like, on the contrary, actually.
We started Lexer because of 3 main reasons:
Our non-technical team (which is 70% of our resources) didn't know how to operate most BI tools, making them unuseful for an agile environment.
Second, running BI tools is unaffordable to almost every business, from subscription costs to operational costs, soon you'll end up realizing that you need to spend a fortune to run such tools.
Finally, the design of those tools is just overwhelming. From the first look, you can tell that those tools expect you to have at least 5-6 certficates in coding and data analysis to be able to operate them.
And so, we went with the good old-fashion way of using multiple different softwares for each of our department Google Analytics for marketing and sometimes operation, Bamboo HR for HR...
The good old-fashion way. Huh
Weeks after implementing those tools, a new more difficult problem arose that just slowed us down as any BI tool would. But this time, the issue we faced had to do less with UX/UI and technical demands and more to do with collaboration and communication.
Departments were waiting days to get their hands on data. HR to sales, marketing to operation, marketing to IT...
It was too slow, which in turn delayed plans 3 to 4 times on average...
Before we continue with the story let's go over some facts.
We all know how chaotic it gets when you're running a business by today's standards, you have to experiment and test really, really fast and in abundance across 3 to 5 departments to achieve pleasant year-to-year growth.
However, without utilizing fast data-driven approaches, no business can grow adequately and efficiently.
Don't take it from us. Netflix, Google, and many more digital giants conduct over 50 experiments day-to-day across 5 departments. So ya measuring your efforts is vital for growth, and you can't measure the success rate of your activities efficiently and execute agile changes without a data analytics tools.
A hopeful future
let's take a closer look
at the issues faced when working with BI tools:
High price points
Team and overall support
Limitation in reports & industry charts

However, back to our story. In order for us to become data-driven efficiently, we had to innovate a more fitting tool to fit in with today's business standards.
