“Working with SWC is more than just a typical vendor-client relationship. I really appreciate the type of partnership that we have. SWC is looking out for the best interest of the group and not just the specific application at hand.”
Building a dashboard is easy, especially with all the options available on the market today. What can be an impediment to getting a dashboard that users will adopt is sometimes the information plumbing. Often times there will be quality issues in the data that need to be corrected before you make mission-critical decisions from it. Other questions that may arise include: Is your data easily accessible? Can data from multiple systems be easily correlated? Do the dashboard users know what they want? Will my dashboards and reports evolve with the business?
The business intelligence landscape is always changing, but you will always need a place to store historical data in an accessible format and a semantic layer that presents the data to end users. For some that semantic layer is a cube and for others it might be another semantic technology.
SWC has partnered with many companies to conduct a pilot project utilizing a scenario and data specific to your business to illustrate multiple tools that your users can try out firsthand. Contact us for a free demonstration.
