Adopting a business intelligence culture is a multi-phased project, which gradually builds and consolidates, so that all levels at the company can make informed, timely and effective decisions.
The journey to a matured BI culture is long and needs to be carefully planned. Considering "Quick Hits" as part of the early stages allows to immediately improve the decision making process and acts as an enabler to the delivery of the BI principles to the whole organization.
Empower Self-Service Analytics
We encourage organizations to use MicroStrategy's self-service Data Discovery tools to empower business users to create and share their own insights, by helping them to gather governed and trusted data from diverse data sources (internal and external).
By following and applying Change Management best practices and guidelines during the different phases of the project, we help our customers keep the proper alignment between technology, infrastructure, people and processes, while ensuring data quality compliant with the company's data governance policies.
Develop Dashboards When Needed
By using MicroStrategy's Monitoring tools, our team of experts can identify those user driven self-services analytics solutions that are candidates to be promoted to be a permanent report or dashboard. Our team of designers and developers will help in the design, development and deployment of these objects in the most efficient way.
Scalable & Focused Teams
Benefit from our ability to setup, organize and manage multiple teams of MicroStrategy and cloud platform experts from our Professional Services team complemented by certified strategic alliances, to deliver accelerated training, custom developments , and platform resources optimization.
Jump-Start your BI Culture
Our implementation approach provides our customers an infrastructure that brings together decision making groups from a variety of functions (owners, managers, operators, finance), based on a platform that allows monitoring based on real use metrics, which encourages in an incremental mode, business users to create their own analytics solutions to expand the power and reach of the BI platform.
In challenging times good decision-making becomes critical. Businesses that are serious about utilizing technology to their advantage, need to consider creating their data warehouse as it becomes the main source of information to their Business Intelligence system for report generation, analysis, and presentation through ad-hoc reports, portals, and dashboards.
To use the data warehouse in an effective manner, data needs to be extracted periodically from the applications that support business processes and copied onto special dedicated environments where it can be validated, reformatted, reorganized, summarized, restructured, and supplemented with data from other sources.
Building data warehouses and associated data integration processes from scratch may be costly, time consuming, and resource intensive. Fortunately, with The HADA Group’s Data Warehouse and Integration Management (DWIM) product this process is simplified and dramatically reduces the effort and risks associated with traditional data warehousing deployments.
By using our DWIM product as part of the deployment process of the target enterprise business intelligence solution, we can achieve the following::
Extend the Data Warehouse
Customers can add new tables and corresponding fields that can be maintained on-line or via MS Excel uploads & downloads.
Map External Data
Mapping feature translates source data from native coding structure into DWIM's standard coding.
Integrate External Data
Configurable ETL Processes allow manual or automated processing of external data from FTP sites.
Facilitate User Interface
DWIM's User Interface can be customized to consider better ways for users to maintain the data based on their security profile.
Create New Report Layouts
Customers can easily create and maintain report layouts to include in custom dashboards.
Easily Adjust KPIs
Table based KPI Engine provides flexibility in the creation of configurable KPI's without any programming.
Easily maintain your business rules and standards
The out-of-the-box features of DWIM includes pre-defined key data dimensions (such as organizations or business units), their relationship with your type of properties, and the additional breakdown of analysis within each property (such as departments and accounts). This data can be easily adjusted and combined to establish your specific business rules under which all source data will be mapped to provide consistency in its analysis and facilitate data governance.
Configurable ETL Processes
Extraction, Transformation and Loading (ETL) processes can be easily configured to allow manual or automated processing of external data from user defined ftp sites, or email attachments. Monitoring Alerts can also be edited to notify key users of various statuses, including processing errors or lack of data submission by predefined dates and times.
Targeted to multiple audiences, with customizable security based on user profile
Security can be established based on responsibility profile, property and department level to manage confidentiality, and these security profile rules are automatically synchronized with MicroStrategy's User Security settings. Pre-defined roles include corporate executives, regional managers, operations executives, property general managers and Business Line Executives, Department Heads, and key business analytical users.
