Business Intelligence Conversion
Innovative Architects has also developed conversion accelerators that can reduce
the time and cost required to migrate reports to a Microsoft solution by as much
as 75%. In fact, in many cases, the savings of additional license, maintenance and
support can completely fund a conversion initiative. Managing and maintaining multiple
business intelligence (BI) platforms can be costly, often requiring tiered components
(such as ETL tools) and specialized resources. Even then, BI platforms are often
underutilized or “over purchased” where functionality purchased is actually used
by only a fraction of the total number of licensed users.
Microsoft’s business intelligence stack allows companies to adjust the dial to exactly the right amount of BI to meet your company’s needs and budget. Whether you are looking for customized ad-hoc reporting that can be delivered through your company portal, an executive dashboard solution or a balanced scorecard, Innovative Architects can design a solution to meet your specific company needs for a fraction of the costly alternatives such as Business Objects, Hyperion, Cognos or Microstrategy. Even if you want to continue using your current BI solution for a smaller, more targeted audience, conversion of standard reports to SQL Reporting Services or a custom Excel Services Solution can reduce the number of required licenses of more costly alternatives and represent considerable savings.
