BI and Analytics Requirements - Equal Parts Art and Science
BI and Analytics Requirements - Equal Parts Art and Science
We hear about it all too often with IT transformation projects that involve Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics. End users often don’t get what they expected and hoped for as far as visibility and access to data when they finally see the end product. What they heard in promised capabilities and envisioned in requirements gathering discussions does not line up with the reality of the final solution. Does this sound familiar to your organization? If so, then it may be time to re-visit your strategy for gathering BI and analytics requirements.
Driving Value and Collaboration with a Business Intelligence Competency Center
Driving Value and Collaboration with a Business Intelligence Competency Center
Collaboration is a key success factor for any business system implementation or initiative. This is particularly true when an organization is looking to gain more value from their data through a business intelligence (BI) program.  Establishing a value-added partnership between IT and groups within the business plays a critical role in not only gaining the most value from the program but ultimately what the solution looks like.

Delivering Value

Navigator’s BI and Analytics team is comprised of experienced business and technology professionals who have the ability to combine the data with an understanding of the business environment, business processes, and the insights that the business needs. We are tool agnostic and work to bridge the gap between domain knowledge and application development skills, which results in smaller application development cycles and implementations that regularly exceed anticipated business value.
