The lifeblood of any business application is data. Long before a single line of code is written, we set about understanding what the shape of this data will be, how things are connected and where relationships exist. This is your world modelled in software. We take great care from the outset to ensure that your software is of the most relevance and value by paying close attention to this important process.
Getting data into a system is only part of the story; it’s what comes out of the system that makes it useful. We have picked a small selection of sample projects to exemplify this. Names and figures have been obscured.
Financial Analysis and Business Planning
A very complex set of metrics from every region and department of a large organisation became the drivers of their management dashboard. Figures relating to staffing levels and skills, sales, costs and other key indicators were brought together, giving a clear view of current and predicted performance.
Combined Reporting and Analytics for Multiple Sources
Data for this example came from several sources. Excel sales reports, Facebook and Google analytics, and bulk email metrics are read and standardised, to allow relationships and patterns to be identified quickly. A layer of intelligence gives the system an understanding of context, allowing items to be combined and simplified.
Service Audit and Implementation of Standards
Our ‘Matrix’ family of applications is used to record and measure the effectiveness of service delivery for networks and commissioning groups within the NHS. Each implementation has a specific purpose, its own set of metrics and rules, and we work closely with stakeholders at every level to ensure the tool is relevant, and the output meaningful and valuable.
