Overview

Organizations need to sift through data from sources that originate from different parts of the business or from diverse systems to derive insights upon which decisions are made. A robust reporting solution allows enterprises to gather and present data to business users automatically or on-demand.

To help enterprises turn raw data into actionable information, Polaris Associates provide a comprehensive suite of reporting services for tools such as JasperSoft, Pentaho, Oracle, and Orbit.

Services

Our reporting services include solution implementation into client portal, upgrade management, and support and mentoring for complex report development. We leverage our experience in implementing reporting solutions into diverse client environments to get your system into production quickly and cost-efficiently.

Pre-Implementation Services

As part of our pre-implementation services, we use information gathered internally (from business users) along with market and competitor information to arrive at reports, dashboards, and self-service reporting requirements for your organization.

Post requirement definition, we help you with hardware and software sizing and reporting tool selection.

In the final leg of the pre-implementation phase, we define the solution architecture and help you build a business case for your reporting implementation.

Implementation & Upgrade Services

The first phase of our implementation process begins with the Enterprise Data Warehousing and ETL implementation. (Know more about our EDW services), post which we install the selected reporting tool components either On-Premise or in the Cloud.

Once the installation is complete, we define, design, develop and deploy reports and dashboards and embed them into the client’s web and eCommerce applications. We also develop frameworks and implement domains to enable self-service reporting.

Besides implementation, we provide migration services and upgrade services for platforms we support. We help enterprises optimize migration of reports from different platforms to a selected platform by leveraging reusable components from existing reports. Our experts can also help you transition you to the latest version of your current reporting platform quickly and seamlessly.

Support Services

We offer post implementation support on all implementation engagements for faster RoI realization.

As part of support, we provide hands-on training on report and dashboard development and self-service reporting to end users.

Our support services also include ongoing maintenance, jobs monitoring, exception monitoring, customizations, minor modifications, and a technical and functional assist to business users to meet ever-changing data and business scenarios.
