Solution Centricity. The Pivot for Successful BI / DW Implementations
It’s a common belief that Data Warehousing implementations apart from being time consuming, are high on deployment costs. Once deployed, there is no guarantee on it providing the desired outcome, as more often than not they fail in addressing the critical needs of the business. A solution centric approach, incorporating the technical and business nuances can significantly improve the ROI, also making sure the cost of ownership is kept at its minimum. The solutions approach also reduces the time to market/go live.
