Perspective winds the dial on BI development

There are two very important factors in achieving faster actionable insight from your Business Intelligence environment.

  1. Your Data needs to be ready
  2. You need to be able to make sense of it

You have data in disparate systems across your enterprise.  Most businesses will be producing reports directly off the source systems, or bulk loading data into a staging environment to then produce reports.  In most cases these are produced manually, stitched together in Excel, and served to the business via email.  Sound familiar?

Here’s where Perspective steps in.  Lets look at how the products help.

Faster Data Delivery

Drastically reduce the time required to provision data for Reporting and Analytics

Establishing a Business Intelligence environment traditionally requires custom development of management frameworks and tools. Perspective Data Governor ensures a faster Data Warehouse development cycle by reducing the delay of onboarding new data, reducing the amount of ETL normally needed and minimising the ongoing management overhead. Featuring a single web interface, you can centrally manage job dependencies, data reconciliation and your data pipeline across multiple command operations, whilst defining ongoing incremental load rules in seconds.

Reliable and Timely Information

Automate processes to verify data accuracy and reduce your processing time
There may be a number of reasons why you’re experiencing quality and timing issues with data published for reporting and analytics.
Typically, it is difficult to time jobs to run in succession, and issues required a lot of time to investigate error logs and perform manual reconciliation checks.
Perspective Data Governor provides a practical Data Process Control framework that provides assurance of the timeliness and reliability of data by making sure jobs run in the right sequence and that dependencies are managed to fit into the time window for processing. Data Governor simplifies incremental processing to speed up data refreshes and provides automated Alerts of failed processes.
By automatically reconciling data between source and target systems at a transactional and aggregate level, Data Governor allows access to reliable and timely data required for meaningful business insight.

User Self-Service

Create a single point of delivery of all information across all your tools
Reporting sprawl is a common symptom of disparate department reporting requirements being provisioned by multiple tools used across different source and legacy systems. Due to this, it becomes increasingly difficult to find the information you are looking for, and even more difficult to track where and when the data originated. The Perspective Enterprise BI Portal drastically reduces the number of disparate reporting tools usually associated with provisioning BI. A single location for all of your reporting requirements, the Portal provides self-service capabilities for your entire business in a secure and governed manner.
