What Capabilities Will BI Make Available?

We have developed a BI framework to help companies monitor their activities, identify issues and their root causes, check best- and worst-case scenarios and finally benefit from fact-based decision-making:

ScienceSoft's BI framework

  • Performance analysis to choose the most relevant internal and external benchmarks, as well as calculate important metrics.
  • Plan analysis to find mismatches, bottlenecks or underutilized capacity.

Plan execution

  • Plan/actual comparison to identify deviations in performance, if any, from the plan.
  • Root cause analysis to find the reasons for lower than planned performance.

Change analysis

What BI Implementation Services Does ScienceSoft Provide?

We offer full-cycle services that cover consulting, implementation, support and evolution, thus leaving no gap between the ideas and the final solution.

Requirements engineering

Requirements engineering

At this stage, we collect the requirements of the stakeholders, including:

  • CEO and other company executives.
  • Analytics department.
  • IT department.
  • Business departments.
  • Business consultants, if any.

We document all the requirements, manage and prioritize them to reflect in a BI solution.

Business analysis and BI implementation consulting

Business analysis and BI implementation consulting

Here’s what we do at this stage:

  • Define business objectives and design a BI solution to achieve them.
  • Define relevant KPIs and reports that a BI solution should produce.
  • Design data quality assurance processes.
  • Suggest an implementation strategy.
  • Define implementation challenges and elaborate the ways to overcome them.
  • Design a user adoption strategy.
  • Describe data sources and ETL procedures.
  • Create an implementation plan that outlines assumptions, resources, milestones, roles and responsibilities, and other details.

Dashboard design

Dashboard design

We consider each user role (for example, CEO, executives, department managers or analysts) and recommend what KPIs each dashboard should reflect. Besides, we suggest the layout and the most convenient data representation options to ensure that dashboards are uncluttered and intuitive.

Development

Development

We do all the coding work to:

  • Deliver all the components of a BI solution – a data lake, a data warehouse, OLAP cubes, reports and dashboards.
  • Implement flawless ETL processes for each of our customers’ multiple data sources, including external and outdated ones. Thus, we develop a centralized BI system integrated with numerous enterprise systems.
  • Strengthen the solution with data science.
  • Set up data quality management practices.
  • Ensure data security.
  • Run quality assurance procedures to avoid such problems as wrongly calculated KPIs, slow response or low-quality UX.

As an alternative to implementing the whole BI solution at once, we offer an iterative approach. In this case, we can deliver a basic BI solution in 2-5 months. For that, we prioritize the deliverables and start with the key reports and dashboards (for example, financial and sales) to later add the reports that provide a more detailed look (for example, cost and operational reports). While developing iteratively, we apply the DevOps approach to assure the quickness and frequency of releases without sacrificing on the solution’s quality.

User training

User training

We conduct training sessions that are targeted at each user group and offer a detailed explanation of the solution’s components and functions. After the training, end users are fully ready to use BI in their daily work.

Launch

Launch

We conduct user acceptance testing of a not yet launched solution to check it in different real-world scenarios. Then, we deploy the solution in production, making it ready for end users. We make sure that the deployment is smooth and that no issues, such as no access to the system or zero values in a report, prevent the users from working with the BI solution.

After-launch support

After-launch support

During 1 – 3 months after the launch, while our customers already enjoy the solution, we eliminate any problem that may appear or help to enrich the solution’s capabilities, for example, by adding new data sources or configuring some additional reports.
