System Integration refers to the installation and configuration of your Business Intelligence Platform and its integration into your Data Warehouse, your Business Process Areas, departments, functions. The Data Integration component may include legacy source systems, ODS’s, 3NF Enterprise Data Warehouse, master/reference data, spreadsheets, XML files, third party data, text files and RDBMS platforms such as Oracle or MS SQLServer, Informix or DB2. System Integration works equally well with ‘Big Data’ tool sets as with the long established classic BI tools.
Optimal Data Warehousing Design & Build
Optimal Data Warehouse design is critical to a successful BI implementation. Data Warehouse design should be driven by user requirements. BISB use the Agile Data Warehouse Design methods published by Lawrence Corr through workshops to gather requirements and model. A Data Warehouse that does not meet end user requirements is not fit for purpose. A Data Warehouse must have excellent performance, hold trusted data, be loaded in a timely manner and join up the business.
ETL Design For Clean & Trusted Data
Clean and trusted data is achieved through the development of the ETL system which will extract, transform and load data into the Data Warehouse. This involves extracting data from source systems, cleaning it and transforming it before loading. Cleaning and transforming data encompasses numerous tasks such as fixing ‘dirty’ data by removing duplicates, fixing partial records according to business rules, trapping errors and conforming data etc. The benefit of this is that business users have confidence that they are working with data that can be trusted and that is joined up. There are really two big components to the ETL system. These are the development of the system and the management of the system.
Analytics consuming clean, quality assured, joined up data are highly valuable to the business. The three most common ways to achieve Business Analytics are to Build, Buy, or Buy and Extend. Business Analytics may be designed and developed for you from scratch (Build), procured from a vendor such as SAP BusinessObjects (Buy), or by using and customising templates (Build and Extend), often referred to as accelerators to jump start a BI initiative.
Business Intelligence Competency Centre
Organisations can protect and grow their Business Intelligence investment by establishing a Centre of Excellence (CoE) often referred to as a Business Intelligence Competency Centre (BICC). BISB have advised several companies on BICC strategy and process. The BICC is the optimum way to role out, maintain, support and scale your Business Intelligence initiative.
Business Intelligence Training
BISB can provide bespoke Business Intelligence and SAP BusinessObjects training geared to meet specific needs. This may include end user BI tool training, BI administration, BI system user adoption, Data Warehousing, and Business Intelligence Competency Centre awareness, orientation, and governance.
