Business Intelligence

At the heart of our business lies our ability to turn data into information. It sounds simple enough but more often than not this poses a real challenge. Multiple data sources, complex data structures, unreliable data, apathetic users, failing technology and unrealistic expectations are just some of the factors complicating the delivery of accurate, reliable information when it is needed most. Fortunately, we have been dealing with these obstacles for the past 30 years and have gained invaluable experience on how to overcome them. We follow a systematic, best practice methodology which starts with an engagement to gain a thorough insight into the customers’ business challenges. This is followed by a complete review of relevant data sources, how it can be brought together, structured and optimized for information delivery in such a way that the vastly different information needs can be met. While applying the appropriate technology plays an important role in the implementation of a sound BI solution we pay special attention to many other relevant factors – factors which often have the final say in the success or failure of the implementation. For example, we have learnt to take change management seriously. State of the art technology is doomed to fail if due respect is not paid to addressing the fundamental culture of the organization and how to manage the impact of information delivery. By engaging with any our four main divisions – products and support, consulting, training or outsourcing customers can set themselves up for BI success.
