A national financial services business was looking for a partner to support their move towards data driven decision making. They wanted to understand how they could develop their business intelligence capabilities to support effective management decision making while also providing BI insights to their network of financial analysts.
WDScott was selected as the preferred partner to develop a BI strategy for selected companies within their Group of Companies. Following a successful Group BI Strategy review the client retained WDScott to support the rollout out of the first wave of BI services focused on the financial services business. The scope of the project included:
WDScott received significant buy-in from the entire Executive Leadership Team (ELT) for the development of a clear BI strategic vision and support for the development of a work stream approach to lead a successful BI system implementation. The strategy was acclaimed by the CEO and leadership team for its focus on re-use and initial quick wins to build acceptance.
"The team at WDScott were very professional and easy to work with, quite engaging and also very adaptable to our changing environment. In terms of the deliverables, what was agreed was delivered on time, within budget and with a very high level of quality and we were very happy with the end result. I would be more than happy to recommend WDScott to any organisation wishing to leverage their external expertise to fast-track the development of their BI capabilities or strategy."CIO
