At Altek Solutions, we believe methodology and execution are differentiators in the marketplace. Through our years of experience, we have developed a series of workflows, procedures, and best practices for the design, development and deployment of business intelligence (BI) solutions.
We employ an agile, iterative methodology as our approach to delivering successful projects. We feel that BI solutions can implement faster and become more flexible by adopting the principles and practices that follow the agile development philosophy.
In addition, we often see users struggle with identifying and articulating their requirements without any visual context of the proposed solution. In fact, in traditional projects requirements often change significantly during testing, as this is the first time users have the opportunity to interact with the BI content and data. By introducing them to the concepts of BI early on, the initial project scope will be much closer to the desired end product.
This iterative approach can also save time by uncovering potential issues—such as tool limitations and data availability—much earlier in the project. Through early and ongoing involvement in the project, everyone on the project team contributes to the overall success of the effort, and is able to make minor adjustments to the direction along the way.
