Statistics Question

I'm a programmer/database developer building financial reports for various product lines. I can break down revenue data by various categorical factors such as product line, product development group, date, geography, etc.

Are there any statistical techniques that would provide practical benefit to this kind of scenario? I have a hunch that there are, but I need to identify them.

I've studied statistics including single/multiple linear regressions and one/two way ANOVA. I've gotten a fairly good grasp of these tools, but they largely involve determining yes/no significance and calculating confidence intervals which my clients really don't care about.
