Coherent Solutions New Product Brings BIG Data Capabilities to Smaller Organizations

Share Article

Business Intelligence Starter Kit allows smaller organizations to build a system incrementally.

With BIG data being discussed in conference rooms around the world, many small to mid-size organizations have wondered how they can tap into the potential hidden within their own data. Coherent Solutions, a custom software development consulting company with integrated global delivery capabilities headquartered in Minneapolis and with offices in Boston, New York, and Minsk, is making it possible for many previously shut-out companies to benefit from Business Intelligence with a BI Starter Kit built from Coherent’s experience in the space.

Coherent Solutions’ new product is a proven, phased approach that incorporates highly predictable outcomes, manageable costs and set time frames into a packaged solution. The BI Starter Kit makes an entry into BI possible for organizations that cannot risk losing time or poorly investing the hundreds of thousands (even millions) of dollars it typically takes to build a data warehouse and reporting system – even though such a system could provide decision making tools that would justify the expenditure.

“This product dramatically reduces the high-priced risk often associated with new BI initiatives,” explained Robert Duff, COO at Coherent Solutions. “The BI Starter Kit allows organizations to form an actionable plan, get some results, and determine how to proceed – without mortgaging the farm to do it. It provides a way for smaller organizations to introduce and take advantage of BI incrementally.”

Coherent Solutions’ experienced BI team helps the uninitiated to navigate the myriad resources and means for building a BI system to meet their specific needs. The two-phased approach includes:

  •     Discovery & Analysis (2 – 4 weeks)
  •     Implementation (6 – 10 weeks)

This is not simply a guideline for building a BI system. Deliverables include:

  •     Data flow diagrams
  •     Source-to-target mappings
  •     Logical data model
  •     Target state architecture diagram
  •     Technical approach
  •     Deployment diagram
  •     Test plan, test cases and a development plan
