Modern BI Approach
Our modern BI approach emphasizes iterative development to deliver incremental value. Breaking BI projects down into a 2-4 week delivery cycle builds momentum and keeps stakeholders engaged. This approach, familiar to those with experience of agile software development, fits BI projects perfectly, avoiding ‘analysis paralysis’, scope creep and runaway project costs.
Focus on design
Our approach incorporates good design with data modelling that creates data structures that make sense to business users. Efficient extract-transform-load routines capture data from a variety of sources. Strong technical design underpins the data warehouse, a ‘single version of the truth’ supporting KPI reporting, dashboards, interactive analytics and data visualizations.
Our modern BI approach takes advantage of the components of Microsoft’s BI technology stack – Power BI, Azure, SQL Server, SSIS, SSRS, Excel with Power Query, Power View and Power Pivot, and Office 365 with SharePoint – to ensure seamless end-to-end connectivity and a familiar, consistent user experience across PC and touch devices.
