BI can provide tremendous insight into all aspects of the business, but is often a complex technology to get started with as most implementations require answering a range of questions, including:
- What’s the right overall approach – Data Warehousing? Data Marts? Enterprise Information Integration? Enterprise Middleware?
- How can data best be accessed? Is ETL the right approach? Or is EAI, EII, “Data as a Service” or another option better?
- What’s an appropriate data modeling strategy? OLAP? Or Relational with/without Star or Snowflake schemas?
As experts with over a decade of experience in Data Management, Business Intelligence and Enterprise Middleware, Vigilant has developed a ‘BI QuickStart’ program to help our customers answer these and similar questions, and establish a clear vision and initial implementation plan for their Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing initiatives.
The BI QuickStart includes an initial “Discovery” phase to identify and prioritize requirements, data and systems analysis, architecture design and development of an overall roadmap that outlines the steps needed to launch a successful Business Intelligence pilot or POC.
If your company has a need for Business Intelligence but aren’t quite sure where or how to start, contact the BI experts at Vigilant today for a complimentary, no-obligation initial assessment.
