Some of our BI & DW Services Include:
Data Warehouse Modeling and ETL services - the Data Warehouse is where you bring all of your data for analysis. ETL stands for Extract, Transform, Load. The process of bringing data from various databases, countries, languages, etc. together into a Data Warehouse can be formidable. Data migration, cleansing, harmonization are just a few of the steps involved. We've been there done that and can help you employ best practices to do the same.

Helping Our Clients Get More Out Of Their Data Since January of 2000
Big Data: organizations store huge quantities of customer, operational, and transactional data, with new information being collected every second. Often this data is kept silo'd at numerous locations and various types of databases around the world. Traditional Business Intelligence (BI) systems selectively analyzed data because of the inability to process large quantities of data. Big Data methodologies enable you to process all available data, no matter what the size, to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations, and useful insights.
Unlike conventional business intelligence solutions, Big Data offers both incredible opportunities and enormous challenges. While conventional BI applications answer the "What", Big Data Analytics helps organizations answer the "Why". Our mission is to help our clients get more out of their data so they can spend their time and energy focusing on using this information to make informed decisions.
We have been pioneers in this field for over 20 years, and have provided over 50,000 hours of these services for one of the largest corporations in America since 2007.
Once we gather and clean the data, we can then bring it all to visual & inter-relational life for your organization with: reports, dashboards, cubes, portals, and other world class BI tools.
We've developed 1,000's of reports for hundreds of manufacturing and wholesale distribution clients over our twenty years.
We also typically build reporting layers into the majority of custom business applications that we develop.
We work with products like Visual Studio, SSRS, SSAS, Power BI, Crystal Reports, up to larger custom enterprise projects with third parties like: Accenture, PRO's, ADP, JDA, and others.
Once the reports are built, we've found that visualizing the data with dashboards and sharp user interfaces, can help bring it to life for managers, executives, and teams.
Portals (web/mobile friendly)
Then we often get called on to create secure role and permission based access for extended web and mobile usage, and in creating tools to enable users/teams to perform their own ad-hoc reporting & data analysis.
We've even been called on to develop custom enterprise BI reporting systems for some of our clients, to handle all of these processes.
