Business Intelligence projects are intended to help you define and implement strategies for your organization. The achievement of this goal is based on a shared and precise definition of indicators, availability and quality of the data and the ability to reflect the status of your organization and its processes. Abilis Solutions proposes the BI project approach based on:
- Services adapted to the phases of the BI project lifecycle;
- Skills covering every stage of Business Intelligence solutions, and;
- The appropriate placement of business and technical experts.
Guiding you throughout a successful lifecycle for your Business Intelligence project
Based on successful experiences in different sectors, we recommend the creation of a Business Intelligence Competence Centre – BICC – the nerve center for your BI projects.
It brings together all the stakeholders involved in this type of project.
The role of this permanent structure is to collect initiatives, approach them with existing solutions and make the most of existing infrastructure. It helps to broaden the use of Business Intelligence tools and optimizes the profitability of past and future projects.
Abilis Solutions engages in helping you create this structure, as well as facilitates and supports your decisions during the project.
Below is the lifecycle of a BI project:
Audit systems and processes, identify the needs of the different parts of your organization and the resources involved, and evaluate the relevance of a modernization or evolution to make your systems more agile and more efficient from a business and technical perspective.
Model the processes impacted by the future decision-making architecture, develop well defined performance indicators, link them to axes of analysis, formalize the requirements to create a preliminary architecture taking into account the constraints and objectives of your organization, translate these elements into a set of specifications.
Select the best architectural solution to meet the requirements. Prioritize and manage the requirements, define tasks, resources, organize and build the project plan.
Perform all steps in the implementation of the Business Intelligence project, modeling, specification, implementation, acceptance testing, deployment in production and change management.
Refine statistical models, enrich data warehouses, consider enhancement requests, publish scores and indicators within the organization so they can be used in the most optimal way, evaluate return on investment and gains brought by the project, anticipate future needs, identify and make your Business Intelligence systems more agile, more responsive and therefore able to meet the demands of your market.
