Organizations today seek a greater understanding of their operations so that improvements to performance and processes can be made. This view into operational effectiveness can allow for increased accuracy when it comes to decision making and prioritization of investment surrounding improvements. Complications exist though when it comes to the various sources of data available for this analysis and then how to perform the necessary analysis on the data. Within most companies, Native SharePoint, SQL Server and numerous third party tools exist, house elements of this data and offer elements of analytic tools. So how do the tools that are in place most effectively support the extraction, aggregation and analysis of this data so that decisions can be made by management in an effective manor? ECS believes that the answer lies in the creation of a tailored and customized solution that pulls previously fragmented datasets through Microsoft SharePoint and third party products to create a single repository on which analytics can be performed. In this session, Enterprise Architects from ECS will explore the topic of Business Intelligence (BI) and the process through which an organization can analyze and create an optimal solution to incorporate BI into their workflow performance analysis. Using an example such as corporate expense reporting, experts will lead audience members through the process of reviewing the various SharePoint and third party data sources, how to extract and perform analysis using common tool sets and how to summarize for senior level reporting. The solution may result in a data warehouse, which in itself is an entire topic. Our discussion will focus on extracting analytics for workflow execution, bottleneck discovery, and business performance from within SharePoint 2010.
