Edgematics BI Methodology
At Edgematics, we have refined our delivery process through hundreds of projects, resulting in a proven BI methodology. Our extensive history with prestigious clients has forged best practices and innovative solutions, hence guiding our customers through any BI implementation successfully.
Project Initiation: Agrees and documents the scope, application and data landscape, executive sponsorship, project team roles & responsibilities, high-level project timeline in a project initiation document (PID).
Analysis: The most challenging part of any BI project, specifying the insightful questions that business executives need answers to, requires a structured and collaborative approach to elicit, including use of stakeholder workshops to storyboard key metrics and use of customizable project templates by business function and process.
Architecture: Specifies the technical architecture and environmental landscape for the solution.
Prototype Design, Build, Test, Validate: A key success factor to most projects is to prototype as early as possible a subset of KPIs across a well understood business process to get feedback and executive buy-in.
Implementation Design, Build, Test, Validate: Risk is reduced by breaking down the implementation into iterative steps for each functional area.
Deploy: Includes migration planning and go-live execution, support and maintenance documentation and user training.
Manage: After go-live, the solution will require support, maintenance and tuning to overcome any initial operational and user challenges. Further changes will be managed under normal change management processes or subsequent project roadmap phases. Edgematics can assist with ongoing maintenance either onshore or offshore.
