Could you get more value from your enterprise data?
If you’re not using business intelligence (BI) strategies and technologies to analyze your data – then the answer is yes. Organizations have come to rely on analytics tools to provide valuable insight into their operations, which they leverage to inform business decisions. The Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) is a set of tools that can help companies get the most value out of their data through centralized data warehousing, robust reporting, interactive dashboards, analysis, data visualization capabilities and more.
OBIEE can be a great investment in the future success of your business, but companies must remember that there is no one-size-fits-all analytics application. To maximize your analytics investment, selecting the right platform for your business needs and then tailoring it to your environment is crucial. So, how do you know if OBIEE is the right application for you while ensuring it’s implemented to provide the insight you need?
AXIA’s analytics experts serve as a true partner in the planning, selection and implementation process to ensure you’re getting the right analytics solution for your company. Armed with decades of business and technology expertise, we work with you to identify your analytics needs and determine the best way to leverage the tools within your organization to meet your goals.
We take a holistic approach, beginning with a business intelligence capability assessment to evaluate where you are in your BI maturity model. From there, we look at where you want to go and develop a plan to get there. This includes recommending the best software for your company’s needs – whether that’s OBIEE or another analytics application. During the prototyping phase, we configure OBIEE to pull the correct data from applications across the enterprise, as well as modify reports and dashboards to extract the information needed to deliver insights that are valuable to your business. After this phase, we’ll collect and analyze what we learned, develop the final roadmap and start implementation.
While a comprehensive plan and prototype are key to successful analytics projects, AXIA can be brought in at any stage to support your analytics needs. Whether jumping in mid-implementation or reconfiguring post-implementation, we work to ensure you’re left with an analytics solution that drives bottom-line results.
Software investments are necessary to move our businesses forward, and reducing risk is critical to achieving a return on these investments. Consider this – recent reports show that the typical organization might spend as much as 5% of their total annual revenue on software purchase and implementation. This means that you could expect to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions, on software projects depending on business size and complexity.
The technology you purchase will have long-term implications on capability, productivity, security and ultimately, company revenue. So, can you afford to risk selecting the wrong technology and/or software solution?
Luckily, with the right plan and process in place, you don’t have to. When the proper steps are taken during the software selection process, you can significantly increase the odds that you’ve chosen the best software to meet your organization’s goals. In addition, you can position your organization for an implementation that has a greater chance of being delivered on-time and on-budget with fewer surprises throughout the effort.
