Allow the reporting lens service to bring your data to life

The volume of data being created is growing enormously and businesses are faced with increasingly competitive markets. This is fueling the need for greater business intelligence and trend analysis, not just for insight but foresight, to enable quick and effective decision making.

In addition, businesses are having to contend with multiple types of structured and unstructured data and the complexities associated with how to store and manage this data.

Node4’s Reporting Lens service, powered by The NAV People (TNP), is ideal for businesses that have ever increasing volumes of data which, through effective analytics, can drive more informed business decisions.

Through the expansion of our Data Practice, we have a ready-made team of analytics wizards that are raring to go to help you visualise your data and drive improved insights. Through defined consulting engagements, Node4 and TNP help businesses create a tailored analytics platform based on Microsoft Power BI and Azure.

Delivering data visualisation one step at a time

Step One – Explore (6-day engagement)

For businesses that know they can get more value from their data. Our BI gurus will deliver a full day workshop resulting in a detailed scope, from there we will document your requirements and draw-up a proposal for an MVP (minimum viable product). This results in a PoC to give you a real-world look and feel playback.

Step Two – Build (10/15-day engagement)

Once we’ve defined your scope, we’ll build out the Reporting Lens for your data based on the agreed deliverables. We have a tightly defined process encompassing sprint builds, playback and user acceptance. The end result will be an effective catalogue of Reporting Lenses to provide your business with incredible insight.

Step Three – Fit & Finish (5-day engagement)

Upon completion of the Build phase, you may need some cosmetic tweaks. We typically allocate time for adjustments to colour palette, branding and formatting etc. The final result is a set of perfectly crafted Reporting Lenses, raring to go for full business usage.

Step Four – Managed Service

Our team of Reporting and Analytic specialists remain available for all ongoing Lens support requirements. We’ll ensure any critical issues such as Gateway Failures are addressed within a tight SLA, and ongoing support such as Lens changes, adjustments to views and adding users are all covered. We provide our ongoing Managed Service wrap though a transparent cost per Reporting Lens, negating the need for additional internal expertise to maintain your reporting solution.
