BIA project workflow

  1. BIA evaluates your data analytics need
    • Is your data accessible? Organized?
    • Does your data need to be combined with other data sets?
    • How do your customers like to interact with their data?
    • Is your request part of a larger initiative?

  2. BIA works with you to identify requirements and deliverables
    • Do you have a report developer whom you would like to build the reports?
    • Would you like BIA to train your developers to build your reports?
  3. BIA liaisons with Data Warehouse and Database Administration teams as needed
    • Not all analysis requires DW/DBA work, BIA can advise you on your options
