From Reporting to Performance Management and Business Analytics
Many organizations have deployed Business Intelligence (BI) solutions to support their decision process. However, despite several years using Business Intelligence techniques, most companies still face key challenges related to the management of information. Users cannot access the right information in a timely manner or in the right context; different BI tools are accessing various data sources; data is inconsistent; data silos exist across disparate systems; data volumes continue to grow exponentially; unreliable forecasts are produced, regulatory compliance is a challenge… To meet such challenges, a well thought approach is required.
Sogeti’s vision is that Business Intelligence and Performance Management programs have to be applied across the whole organization. This is because they are strategic in nature and require a close interaction between IT and the business, as well as strong governance to help identify, deliver and maintain the organization’s BI strategy.
Sogeti can help you structure your BI initiatives and achieve your business targets.
Solution driven approach
Our comprehensive and broad range of BI services address the ‘Think cycle’ with our BI Next Solution, the ‘Build cycle’ with our BI Center of Excellence Solution and the ‘Act cycle’ with our BI Analytics & Statistics Factory.
The Think cycle – BI Next Solution
Sogeti’s Think cycle Solution assists your organization in Business Intelligence by providing insight into an organization’s BI maturity and a route forward. Following a concise assessment, our experts deliver pragmatic diagnostics of critical areas: strategies, measures, policies & standards, organization, technology, processes and information management. This is done through interviews and questionnaires involving business and IT stakeholders from several departments. Key deliverables are As-Is and To-Be scorecards and a BI Strategy roadmap.
We focus on a short-term program for fast delivery and ROI, as well as a long-term plan to support the organization’s strategy and performance. The proposed evolution path enables major process improvements that will facilitate operational excellence.
The Build cycle – BI Center of Excellence
After guiding your organization in defining an appropriate BI roadmap, Sogeti is the ideal partner for its execution using our BI Center of Excellence service. This comprises the different components of a BI transformation project:
- BI architecture (framework & best practices)
- Data quality, Data Governance & Master Data Management
- Data Migration
- Data Warehousing & Data Integration
- Reporting, Dashboards & Alerting capabilities
For each of these components, the BI Center of Excellence brings together the processes, KPIs, methodologies and best practices that have been acquired from numerous Sogeti projects. Leveraging this collective experience means that we can deliver cost-effective, valuable and scalable BI solutions.
Through the Build cycle, data is transformed into valuable and precise information to monitor and analyze the performance of your company and support your decision-making process.
The Act cycle – BI Analytics & Statistics Factory
Having good reports on your business data is often not quite enough. Some useful information may still be hidden in your BI environment. To help you further in becoming a predictive company, you can leverage from Sogeti’s BI Analytics Factory.
Here we address the questions like: "What will happen next?" and "What is the best that can happen?", or define “What-if” scenarios. The answers to these questions will help you forecast next month’s sales and inventory levels and how these are interrelated to foreseeing bottlenecks and improve performance of your resource allocation. They will also identify your most effective commercial activities and profitable customers, enabling you to optimize your marketing and churn prevention campaigns.
