Business Intelligence

Turn Your Data into Ultimate value

“Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius-and a lot of courage-to move in the opposite direction.” Albert Einstein

Business intelligence (BI) represents the tools and systems that have a key role in the strategic planning process within a company. These BI systems allow for the gathering, storage, access and analyzing of corporate data to aid in decision-making. These systems will generally illustrate business intelligence in the areas of customer profiling, customer support, market research, market segmentation, product profitability, statistical analysis, and inventory and distribution analysis to name a few.

With the largest team of specialists in a comprehensive Business Intelligence portfolio, Ness has already implemented tens of successful projects in this area. This is proven by our customers ‘results and our long-term cooperation with them.

  • Building an analytical and efficiently operating environment to exploit the increasing data volumes about their customers, partners and employees.

  • You will achieve revolutionary cost savings on implementation and development of the BI solution.
  • Advanced metadata, sophisticated “OnClick” connection of the CASE tool with the database and using generic components (e.g. for historization) for simpler and cheaper development and testing of the whole solution.

EFFICIENCY

ELT Infrastructure

Ness BI Factory processes data based on the ELT principle and uses maximally the power of the database server. Unlike the standard ETL approach, it is not necessary to invest into the powerful application server. The whole process of data processing including its controlling is fully managed by Ness BI Factory and the target database. The basic module in this section is ELT PowerJet supplemented with modules which provide advanced techniques for BI solution building.

Accelerators

One of the biggest advantages of the Ness BI Factory tool is the ability to reduce time in the implementation part of the project. The shortening can be achieved particularly thanks to tools for creating and processing analytical/controlling metadata. The work with Ness BI Factory is based on the sophisticated “OnClick” linking of CASE tool with the database. The effort connected with the development and testing of BI solution is thus effectively minimized. Ready-to-use reference models of specific BI areas are part of the section, such as contact history of the client.

Methodology

Ness has developed its own methodology for each part of the project (analysis, development and testing), based on experience from earlier projects in combination with the best known practices in the field of Business Intelligence.

Methodological anchoring of elements, which extend the standard architecture of data warehouse and data and process modeling, enables rapid development including easy transfer of know-how. Everything is covered by the methodology for project management, which covers the whole process of project management and implementation including the follow-up operation of BI solution.
