What To Expect in the Business Intelligence Audit and Data Systems Review

WCI’s business intelligence auditors will come onsite to complete a thorough run-through of the existing business intelligence and data management systems. At the same time, WCI will advise clients on new features/products, and how these solutions should fit into their short-, mid-, and long-term deployment plans. Data analytics and objectives from the audit are meant to verify the use of best practices in the data management and BI environment. They also provide executives and management with an independent assessment of the BI and data warehousing infrastructure (and its maintenance). During the review, findings will be documented and our recommendations presented. It will also include a suggested approach to improve existing systems and recommendations on possible future data endeavors.
