BI Solutions

Defining, developing and deploying BI solutions

Anari has been defining, developing and deploying BI based solutions since we started the business back in 2006. It is our heritage, it is what we do. We also practise what we preach, with the development of our own, repeatable BI solutions for our travel and transport customers.

So the BI solution development lifecycle is in our blood.

Developing a BI solution requires a number of disciplines. This is expertise that all of our people offer, with multi-skilled consultants who are equally at home in front of you and your customers/stakeholders as they are being in our offices.

We have been trusted to develop BI solutions by a large number of blue chip companies, in multiple industries, across both the public and private sector.

Whatever your BI solution needs, Anari has the team to deliver. We are big enough to deliver but small enough to be flexible.

Why should you engage Anari to build your BI solution?

That is a good question, to which there is a simple answer. We are good at it. We say what we’ll do and we deliver on that promise. It is an approach which has stood us in good stead whilst delivering a Performance Management Solution for Highways England which helps to manage £2Bn of annual spend; and developing a Customer Marketing Database for Virgin Atlantic; and a Manufacturing Reporting Suite for BAE Systems.

End-to-end solution delivery – we are probably at our best when we are engaged to deliver a BI solution from definition right through to deployment. Our business analysts and technical design authorities work together with your stakeholders to define the solution specification. Then the solution needs to be built (typically using an agile methodology), tested versus specification, reviewed with key stakeholders, refined, finalised, documented, and deployed. Education needs to be delivered before user-acceptance, followed by any post-implementation refinements. Only then can you move into the live operation and early-life support.

With Anari engaged to deliver your BI solution end-to-end, you have the assurance that the right skills are available from people who practise what they preach.

Accelerated development – we have developed a number of our own BI solution components which can be used to accelerate delivery. These include a user front-end, master/metadata management, load control and data loading. Using or adapting these can significantly shorten time to deliver, saving money and ensuring that business benefits accrue more quickly. This ‘BI-in-a-box’ approach is very cost-effective versus a purely bespoke development.

Technology agnostic – having multi-skilled technical consultants we are not tied to any specific technology. If our customer has a particular solution stack that they have invested in, then we will use it unless there is a really good reason not to. Alternatively we can recommend technology based on the requirement and our experiences.

Would you like BI solution in-house or via Software as a Service?

Whether you choose an in-house delivery, or to use our Software-as-a-Service platform, you can be sure that any BI solution we design, develop and deliver will give your business great results, quickly.

Software as a Service – we have invested heavily in very high-speed IBM Netezza data warehouse appliances, based in two geographically separated Tier 4 designed Data Centres in order to ensure our hosted ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) can cope with even the largest airline.

This option speeds up implementation, meaning that your business will see the benefits of your new BI solution more quickly. It is based on Anari-owned infrastructure, which means that your investment is based on Operational Expenditure that does not require lengthy Capital purchase decisions. It also minimises the impact on scarce IT resources within the airline.

In-House – this more traditional delivery model gives your business its own in-house BI solution based on your own hardware. For businesses that have already invested in high-speed servers and have a team of skilled database administrators then this may be a good choice.
