Kimball Project Framework
What Rocks leverages the proven successful Kimball Business Life Cycle to managed Business Intelligence Projects. The framework shares kindred with the PMI
methodology; but, the framework focuses on reporting projects. What Rocks utilizes the structured project flow to assure that projects stay on time and on budget.
As well, we are able to define the intiative into interative sprints that are concisely defined for a successful finish.
Business Intelligence Discovery
Our BI Discovery service provides us the ability to deeply understand your business, your team, and their reporting needs. As we interview your staff and leadership, we obtain timely information on the issues your organization faces in obtaining the data needed to function. At What Rocks, we divide our inquiry into two key paradigms, business process and technical efficiencies. Your staff walks through a process that allows them to vocalize and document their role and scope of responsibility within the organization. Each team determine their own interdependencies and how they relate to their internal and external customers, building an overlay map of where data flows and bottlenecks across the organization. As the conversation continues, we work to determine where bottlenecks are man or system created. Allowing at the end for the creation roadmap of tactical improvements that will get us to our overall goal, a seamless data reporting environment.
