How do you professionalize BI using a framework?
As a manager, director, or consultant, the advantages of Business Intelligence to your organization are clear as day. But the trick is making BI work for you at the lowest possible cost. How do you make sure the right information reaches the right user, and in the right form? And without generating an entire battery of dashboards and reports. How do you tackle this issue smartly and without investing a ton of money, while maintaining the proper, high quality?
The answer: the Business Intelligence Framework developed by Passionned Group.
What is a Business Intelligence Framework?
A Business Intelligence Framework is, as the name implies, a framework that seamlessly connects the various elements of a business: organizational roles, KPIs, authorization, and visualization. This helps you implement Business Intelligence plans both easier and faster.
The improvement process of Business Intelligence structures
A BI framework helps you to structure the improvement process of Business Intelligence. On top of that, it lets you implement your BI strategy in a very cost-effective way. Our many years of experience have allowed us to develop this framework, which makes high-quality BI at a reasonable price possible.
Why do you need a framework?
Passionned Group’s BI framework registers which information or insight each organizational role needs in which form, and at which moment in the production process. In other words, the relevant information, effortlessly available to whoever needs it, at any given time. 100% current, interactive, and fast. Users no longer need to struggle with complex file structures or click through myriad tabs looking for the right report or dashboard.
The five key points of our framework
- Many possibilities for reuse due to object orientation and inheritance.
- Very user-friendly and easy to use thanks to a standardized User eXperience (UX).
- Device-neutral, so you can use it using a portal, desktop, smartphone, or tablet.
- Highly flexible due to being based on concrete organizational roles.
- 100% independent from BI vendors and tools.
What are the advantages of working with a BI framework?
What’s the fastest and most cost-effective way to implement your Business Analytics? The answer is: a good BI architecture and a BI framework. Much has been written about architecture, but BI framework deserves just as much attention, because it carries so many advantages. Frameworks aren’t concerned with the data layer, that’s the domain of the data warehouse architecture. They’re concerned with the presentation layer of BI that also determines authorizations. In that layer, you can gain a lot of efficiency, because countless reports use almost identical graphs and tables, but don’t come from the same place. They were copy-and-pasted to life, leading a zombified life of their own and becoming difficult to maintain. Sound familiar?
The advantages side-by-side:
- Making a new dashboard available in just a few clicks.
- Developing new BI applications within mere days.
- The ability to create new mobile BI applications quickly.
- Lower administrative costs and a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
- Excellent performance thanks to the high rate of reuse and caching.
Insights are the key to real insight
Insights are the key concept in Business Intelligence frameworks. An insight is the smallest visual unit in which you present management information using an underlying parameterizable query. Insights can be shared and reused. They can be stored in a library so they can be reused in various dashboards, reports, and analyses, regardless on which device or by whom they are viewed. So it doesn’t matter whether you’re looking at an insight on a tablet, smartphone, laptop, or desktop.
Consistently applying the reuse principle
By consistently applying the reuse principle, you can develop and maintain mobile BI applications and reports much more quickly and easily. One-time definition, multiple uses. This helps you to implement Business Intelligence strategies both quicker and easier. You can also execute migration tracks much more quickly using this principle. Passionned Group’s Business Intelligence course teaches you the ins and outs of Business Intelligence frameworks, including a live demonstration of an implementation.
