The Define phase looks at how BI is defined for your organization and what business benefits you are looking to gain from the solution. The Design phase focuses on designing the Data Model, custom reports, analytical requirements, dashboards, and re-designing current reports to migrate. The Develop phase will perform the installation and configuration of Oracle BI followed by creating the Data Model including ETL processes from the data warehouse to the repository. The Destroy phase is where the solution is tested and optimized for performance. The final phase of Deploy starts with knowledge transfer throughout the implementation life cycle and is reinforced by a clearly defined post deployment support plan geared toward making you self-sufficient. Our Rapid Path Oracle BI program combines specialized staff with a solid methodology applied in flexible project configurations.

RAPID PATH generates the momentum organizations need to get BI initiatives up and running by building a strong foundation for ongoing success through a hybrid bundle of services.
