Status Quo

The client, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and up-to-date technology, researches, and manufactures technological devices and smart systems in Vietnam.

CHALLENGES:

With roaring sales, new products, and extending markets, the company sought a comprehensive BI strategy to handle their:

  • Lack of resources for building a modern DW solution.
  • Deficient BI reports which already caused many troubles for the client to gain insights and make fast and effective decisions. The current situation of BI reports is running at a slow speed and stands unfriendly to users.
  • Heavy dependency and lag of business users on IT for reporting needs
 

Our Solution

We workshopped with leaders and business users to define issues and blockages and designed a roadmap to BI maturity that served as a blueprint for later implementation of the vision, people, processes, tools, and architecture. The service model combines Azure Data Services and Power BI.

The BI roadmap contains four stages, including stage 1: Assessment, stage 2: Design and modelling, stage 3: Production, and stage 4: Advances BI.

Currently, we are in phase 1 and aim to implement a cloud-powered data warehouse, build a scalable BI setup, and kickstart analytics usage with ML applications in their top priorities: Automated Sales processes and Customer understanding.

Results

After three years in business, our client eventually has their data centralized in a single and high-performance database. This foundation was developed not only to complete the project but also as the basis to produce comprehensive reports and long-term ML model applications later.

  • Automated reports

Finance reports are automated, and the average loading speed is reduced from 90 seconds to just 5 seconds.

  • Release employees

Boosted bottom-line profit & productivity by reducing manual overhead.

  • Enhance internal collaboration

Empower business users to co-create reports via self-service BI.

  • Single-source-of-truth

Bring together the data that matters to our client’s business – from siloed enterprise data sets to third-party data streams – storing it in a powerful time-series analytic database offering enterprise-grade data engineering capabilities.
