BI Implementation Process:
From project inception, our team gather requirements from business lines services, determine specific project approaches, solutions and BI technology fit for purpose. After a joint workshop, we will define how we will help you to solve existing problems and improve your business performance by using BI tools and analytics technology deployment.
Collect & integrate data
After establishing a business goal, our experts will collect and integrate data from various sources (i.e. ERP, transactional databases, file systems, flat files, Excels) into one Master Database called Data warehouse or Big data file systems so you will be easily able to access and manipulate different types of information from one place.
Transform, clean & prepare data
Collected and integrated data is transformed during the loading process into a database system (ETL), then prepared for exploration, ad-hoc analysis, and modeling. We implement highly scalable data processing scripts to aggregate, clean, and transform data into an appropriate format. After it, business users are able to analyse data, create ad-hoc sql queries, and be self-sufficient by using modern Business Intelligence tools.
Explore data and get insights
Together with business users, defined problems are solved through conclusions from the data exploration process using data mining techniques and BI tools. Developed OLAP or Tabular solution will organise and help you to discover patterns in data. BI tools go beyond knowing what and when it happened – they can predict with the highest probability why it happened.
Data Visualization & Reporting
We create rich, visualised Business Intelligence dashboards and reports that facilitate sharing the most important information, and KPI’s inside or outside your organization. You will reduce user interactions and save time while the business intelligence system will do everything for you. It helps enterprises to make the right business decisions at the right time, and let you manage organizations consciously while improving performance KPI’s.
We help you make informed decisions, educated guesses and develop strategies that support critical choices made by the people running your company. Our team of experts will help you extract knowledge from your data, integrate it into (ETL) Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and turn it into daily insights with interactive dashboards using such tools as Power BI, Tableau, or Looker. We provide companies with reliable Business Intelligence Services using trusted technologies.
