Reporting and Analytics solutions are a key link in the Business Intelligence value chain. They form the presentation layer of Business Intelligence – providing a simplified interface between the data repositories (typically a Data Warehouse) and information consumers (business decision makers). Their architecture and design therefore play a huge part in the overall success of Business Intelligence solutions.
Stellar’s “top-down” approach to Business Intelligence ensures that we cover all of the bases when it comes to Reporting and Analytics. We work with the business to construct an information architecture and delivery framework before we build anything. This approach ensures that:
- we recognise and address the diverse Reporting and Analytics requirements of each user group (strategic, tactical, and operational users typically have different information needs);
- we are capturing the data needed to fulfil those requirements; and
- we are in a position to recommend an appropriate “best fit” suite of Reporting and Analytics tools for the business (keep in mind there is no one tool that can meet the needs of all users).
Stellar is close to all the leading Business Intelligence software vendors. Our consultants frequently attend internal training courses provided by Microsoft, Oracle, SAP/BusinessObjects, and others. We know exactly where their products are positioned, what their product roadmaps look like, and where their products are best suited. We are therefore well positioned to offer unbiased advice and expert hands-on skill to construct the best Reporting and Analytics solution for your organisation.
