Elegant, Practical and Robust Solution Design for Your Analytics Needs
Why is Getting the Design Right so Important?
We all know that we can improve the way we perform Business Analytics and Business Performance Management. An important part of the solution is choosing the right technology, so this is a great first step on the journey to better practices. However, with so many pieces of the puzzle to fit together, it may be difficult to work out where to start, and how to build with future components in mind.
For example, you may be considering a new budgeting process, self-service reporting, incorporating data that has never been presented to users before, and doing all of this through a combination of web, mobile and Excel platforms.
Without a clear understanding of the end-state, and the ‘best practice’ rules for creating a simple, useable system, you could miss the opportunity to create a great first impression for your stakeholders.

“Cornerstone were definitely the right choice – they helped with every aspect of the initial project, and we’ve now started working with them on some subsequent requirements that weren’t part of the original scope,” says Mario Torresan, Chief Financial Officer. “Our HR department decided to use TM1 too, so Cornerstone have extended the solution to handle both financial and HR data. In general, we’ve been very impressed with the speed of deployment of Cognos TM1, which is partly due to the user-friendly design of the product, and partly to Cornerstone’s expertise.”
