Seimetrix delivers holistic BI solutions, not just software. We start by helping you to define the critical KPIs and reports that you need to monitor/improve the performance of your organisation. Key to that is understanding your business and what you need to achieve. We then select the appropriate BI software for your requirements. A major feature of each of our BI solutions is the provision of self-service analysis capability – this enables stakeholders to drill into underlying performance without having to wait on the IT department to run reports.
Which business intelligence tool?
There is no one size fits all where BI platforms are concerned. Every client’s requirements are different which is why Seimetrix adopts a vendor independent approach to BI solutions – unlike many BI vendors whose primary purpose is to sell expensive software. We apply the most suitable, and the most cost effective platform, for your requirements, not ours. The decision will come down to a number of factors including user license requirements and the objectives of the BI engagement, for example analytics vs reporting vs visualisation capability. Where possible we will also try to re-use any investment in existing technologies and skillsets.
The implementation experience
There are a number of reasons why BI projects have historically been unsuccessful –these range from a failure to properly define the scope of a BI engagement to attempting to “boil the ocean” in one step. Which is why the Seimetrix approach is streamlined, pragmatic and simple to understand. We always try to identify quick wins to help garner stakeholder support early in the cycle; we ensure that our clients are fully aware of what can be achieved, and what is unrealistic; and we deliver comprehensive knowledge transfer as part of the process so that progress will continue long after the initial implementation.
