When IT meets Finance

Business Intelligence

"A good company starts with good reporting".


The statement above is something that we often use when we start presentations on Business Intelligence. We believe that it's a very strong statement that goes for every company, small or big, Industrial or banking. This is also what we try to achieve for our clients. Processing the data in such way so that it can be easily used to make significant, accurate and powerful reporting and dashboards.

Current Project


BO XI to Cognos migration - BNP Paribas Fortis


Key roles : Data Modeler, Framework designer, Business Analyst, Report Author


BNP has chosen to migrate all BO reporting to Cognos. BR Solutions (via Finalyse) has been chosen as partner to realise this migration for the ADM Finance department. As interactive reporting with drilldown functionality is a key requirement, Dimensional Modelling will need to be designed and OLAP Cubes might be used. BO universes and reports will be recreated in Cognos from the ground up. Starts as from November 2015.
