Our Approach

Our delivery approach ensures the success of projects by:

This approach allows us not only to deliver on time and budget, but exceed our client's expectations.

Business Orientated Workshops

A methodology to elicit information delivery requirements that are clearly actionable. Stakeholders across Executive, Middle Office and Front-Office are engaged to ensure information artefacts and the self-service data model to be delivered by a project is strongly aligned to the needs of optimising a particular business process.

Platform Acceleration

BizData provides turnkey frameworks that expedite the implementation of Business Intelligence platforms specifically to manage data integration processes and simplify information distribution. A complete BI platform is typically configured within 2 – 3 weeks, which allows end-to-end development (from data acquisition through to visualisation) for each delivery cycle.

Time-Boxed Delivery

BizData focuses on structuring work to be delivered in 2 week cycles, ensuring a high level of stakeholder participation and ongoing user testing for the design & build of each feature. This provides tangible deliverables progressively throughout a project and allows corrective action to be taken early enough to ensure a successful outcome.
