Climber Worldwide

Design and development of your BI solution

Becoming a truly data-driven organisation takes time, resolve, and the right BI solutions that will help your business achieve its objectives. We can advise which products will enable you to make better, more informed, decisions. We at Climber can then manage the project, no matter how big or small, to onboard your solution, or transition from one to another, seamlessly. A development project always starts with a workshop aimed at understanding your business, your monitoring operations, who your users are, and what data sources are available. Once these requirements have been identified, then the development process begins based on an agile methodology, which divides the project into smaller iterations. We work proactively and in close collaboration with you, the customer.

We can help you with structured/unstructured data modeling, business function frameworks, and mobile application development. Our PRINCE 2 and Agile DSDM qualified project managers will take on the heavy lifting to deliver a highly valuable and successful project, with quantifiable results. We always start a project with an interactive workshop, so we fully understand your business, your data, and your users.

We have delivered business intelligence projects for companies of all shapes and sizes. We know how to keep projects on track, communicate successfully, and ensure that your employees get the most from your BI solution. By letting us handle your BI project for you we can inform your data strategy, improve collaboration, and increase levels of data literacy across your business.

The development process – how it works

Waterfall or Agile? 

Many companies are now opting to run projects the agile way and as Agile DSDM qualified project managers we can work in short sprints. However, we are proficient in both methodologies, and if you’d prefer we manage the project differently, we can do that for you. The most important aspects of any successful project are ensuring that it considers the impact on people and process,  and engages your employees throughout. A good project manager will do all of that for you, regardless of whether you opt for an agile or waterfall approach.

Extract, Transform, Load

All solutions are developed using a structured ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) process, which ensures effective integration between you and your various data sources and systems. The process lays the foundation for the data model, and the interface is designed from a user perspective. We use common coding standards to facilitate future changes to the applications.

Quality assurance

Quality assurance of the solution is done routinely during the project by a consultant who is independent of the development process. Each BI solution is verified and tested by your power users, after which adjustments and refinements are made before the solution is finally implemented. In conjunction with the final delivery, you will be given documentation summarising the purpose of the solution as well as the technology and architecture used to build it.

Long-term BI value creation requires ongoing development and adaptation to meet the user needs. Are the user’s questions being answered? Can the design be improved? Are new data sources available? Are any functions missing? Are there new users with new needs? We further develop existing applications so you can maximise the value of your solution. There are constant sources becoming available, as only focusing on the internal data will never help you get the true value from your BI solution.  Understanding market and social data will help you provide clarity around your own performance.  Whether it is about specific functions or major changes, we can help you to improve your current BI solution.
