Our process

Analytical, flexible and efficient – PBT Group has a pervasive culture of technical excellence and innovation.

BI solutions are most successful when the strategies and systems span the entire organisation to provide reliable and real-time information to decision-makers on all levels of the organisation. PBT Group implements such systems based on the Ralph Kimball methodology, with a few modifications of our own.

1
Assess readiness

The ideal state of the organisation is established while an assessment is made of the organisation’s readiness to use a data warehouse and its related information delivery.

4
Implementation approach

All is put into place regarding the development approach, naming, data and metadata standards, data modelling governance standards, security, testing and operating guidelines and procedures.

2
Technical infrastructure

This is implemented or evaluated if it already exists. Products used to develop and run the project are assessed or selected, acquired, installed and configured.

5
Data warehouse modelling

A high-level, preliminary data warehouse model is drawn up to serve as a framework for the detailed development and to identify key business areas.

3
Define requirements

High level business requirements are
determined, documented and verified with
the business.

6
High-level project plan

The project’s scope and boundaries are determined and documented on a high-level. This determines which technologies are appropriate, as well as which user populations must be included.

Quality

PBT Group’s total quality management (TQM) philosophy places the client at the heart of quality control.

The type of service we deliver will dictate the approach to quality processes and controls, in line with client expectations. The quality controls we recommend involve deliverables in and outside project delivery and include:

  • Quality assurance
  • Risk management
  • Issue management
  • Change control
