The devil is in the details
Architecture and design is a crucial component of every BI implementation. Mariner has found that early stage design choices can have a significant impact on the final adoption rates of a BI solution. Spending time on the design and architecture is time well spent.
Over the years we have collected analytic design patterns, some of which we have codified into our process and accelerator tools and others which we apply on an ongoing basis. Having an Architect or Designer in the early phases of your project could mean the difference between success and failure.
Where Mariner can help
Creating an analytic or BI application could involve one or more of the following steps:
- Moving Data (ETL)
- Ensuring Data Quality
- Modeling Data
- Infrastructure Optimization
- Building Cubes
- Data Mining
We can help at every step. Along the way, there are mistakes to be avoided and best practices that can be applied, which in turn drive adoption and maximize ROI. Mariner has built "BI accelerators" which help apply some of the best practice BI design patterns to our solutions in an automated fashion.
