Much of the work that we do for our customers addresses a simple issue – how can stakeholders in an organisation be sure that they are all starting from a common understanding of their business performance? It is not unusual for colleagues to attend a meeting and find that there is more than one version of the “truth” and that much time is spent discussing which version, if any, is the truth. This situation is often caused by much business reporting being done by business users extracting data from source systems and producing reports in a spreadsheet.
Our services include defining common metrics, common business definitions, common dimensions, common facts and common data processes to ensure that everyone has access to common metrics wherever they may be in the organisation.
The presentation of metrics in both graphical and detail layouts with the ability to drill to lower and higher levels of detail is a key to understanding, improving and measuring business performance.
