This research study will deal with Nine Months (NM) Ltd., a company in Qatar that specialises in designing fine maternity garments. Nine Months is finding it difficult to manage business data, as they are using simple methods to generate and document the business data (such as an Excel sheet and a bill booklet). Thus, there are lacks in showing how productive and how profitable Nine Months is in achieving its business target. The business must engage with new technology and a new system; therefore, a BI tool called Tableau will be defined and implemented to enhance Nine Months’ documenting system. This has been recommended by a BI expert. In addition, a model prototype will be piloted in Nine Months. As they are facing a problem in gathering their data into a single system, this system helps in converting raw data to meaningful data, which assists in the strategic and managerial decision-making process.
