Business Intelligence Reporting
Ok, I’ve got the Data in the Warehouse, What now? This is the realisation part. This is concerned with the creation of reports, charts etc which will be distributed to users over a secure platform. There are numerous tools available which provide this functionality. The key deliverables here are to create middleware and database connections, create a suite of reports, implement security features and set up a distribution facility. The key to successful reporting is that reports are created and tested for sign off by the Business/Stakeholders. Changes or additions may be required so report flexibility is paramount. Security is also of vital importance and groups and users should be set up with the correct security implemented.
