Business Intelligence

Every business uses some form of management reporting to provide historical, current and predictive views of their operations. As businesses grow however the volume of data and information that must be assessed, from traditional financial reports to the myriad of spread sheets and purpose-built databases, can quickly overwhelm the ability to make timely and informed decisions.

We utilise a four-stage methodology to help our clients develop Business Intelligence strategic plans:

  • Visioning , evaluation of the organisation’s strategic objectives
  • Analysis, of the  organisation’s decision support requirements,  current state assessment and gap analysis
  • Direction,  develop  the BI strategic direction, recommendations and initiatives
  • Recommendation  and communicating the BI plan

Simply deploying BI technologies however will not in itself solve all of an organisations reporting and decision support challenges, BI must be considered within the individual context of a business including - strategic objectives, governance, technology architecture.
