The right system at the right price

Are you looking to undertake a brand new software development or a system re-write or enhancement? In order to deliver the right solution, you need to be able to define its functional and non-functional requirements in any given environment. And by the right solution, we mean the one that meets the needs of the business and delivers optimum ROI – whether custom written or off-the-shelf.

Too often the tendency is to focus on the ‘wants’ or the ‘nice to haves’ rather than the genuine needs of the business. The result is a system that does not deliver business advantage and will often not be adopted by users as the fit is simply not right.

One of our real strengths at Software Solved is our ability to deliver the right system, on time and on budget. Right up-front we ensure the requirement and specifications are completely watertight so developers understand clearly the functionality they are expected to deliver and users are totally aware as to what system they are going to get.

Data Warehousing
Data Warehousing 150 150 Matt Webb

Our data warehousing solutions integrate data from multiple systems

It’s not unusual for an organisation to be running multiple business systems across different departments. The accounting system, the ERP, the marketing database and the customer portals may all be operating very successfully for each department but, held on different systems, in different places, they can’t give you insight into what is happening uniformly across the entire business.

At Software Solved we design and implement data warehouses that accurately combine data from multiple systems to give you a single, precise source of the truth. We’ll install them on premises or in the cloud, whichever works best for your organisation.

This delivers high quality reporting in one source allowing you to make strategic decisions from a data source you can trust. Unlike what so many companies have where reporting is done directly from each separate system which does not provide the bigger picture view of the business and increases strain on databases – slowing down business systems. This approach also increases the proliferation of multiple inconsistent implementations of business rules across systems resulting in incorrect reports or increased maintenance costs.

For a discussion, call one of our data experts now on 01392 453344 or email us at hello@softwaresolved.com.

How we've implemented data warehouses in the past

Data Warehousing at Software Solved

In 20+ years of operation we have acquired vast experience and understanding of building and implementing data warehouses successfully. Examples include:

  • Migration of an on-premises data warehouse to a cloud-based data platform on Azure.
  • Cloud based data flow ETL processes and ETL mechanisms to consolidate disparate data sources.
  • Maintenance of an on-premises data marts.
  • Data warehouse implementation that brought data from a Document-style database into a format more appropriate for reporting.

The hidden gold in your business

mobile data

Most companies use, collect or store data but too often it stays trapped in disparate systems across the organisation. It’s a valuable hidden resource that many don’t tap into to gain a competitive edge.
