The client faced the challenge of not having a centralized repository of information to track key performance indicators (KPIs). This meant that the client had to rely on various data sources to track KPIs, and there was no standard definition for these metrics. The absence of a central repository also meant that there was no consistent and reliable way to track the performance of different business units across the organization.
To address these challenges, the client decided to invest in a combination enterprise data warehouse and business intelligence system. This system would allow the client to consolidate data from various sources into a single repository, which could then be used to track KPIs across the organization.
The enterprise data warehouse and business intelligence system would enable enterprise-wide visibility and access to timely and reliable information, allowing for faster and better-informed decisions across business units. The system would provide a single source of truth for KPIs, ensuring that everyone in the organization was working with the same data and metrics. Additionally, the system would enable the client to define standard definitions for KPIs, ensuring consistency and accuracy in tracking performance metrics.
