We do analytics! We do Looker!
We love to visualize your story!
Ok, not only your story :) We believe stories can be made of data. Yes, data is the base of your organizations story and that story can be visualized with different tools. All these data, tons of data, you have stored in different locations or/and applications can be gathered and displayed for you to take data driven decisions to improve your business. This is really what business intelligence is about.
Business Intelligence is not only a project. It's more than that - its a journey. A journey of continuous improvements where your organization learn to trust the data and the stories made.
We help you with this journey and we deliver BI-as-a-service, that is a fully managed BI-service so your organization may focus on the analytics rather than building the backend data warehouse. Mimico work primarily with the best BI-vendors on the market - Looker and Google BigQuery.
Want to create your story?
The first steps
There are different ideas of how Business Intelligence should be implemented in an organization. For us, the most important thing is to present the best story that gives you value and helps you to take the correct decisions. We believe that small steps towards a defined goal is the best way to begin your journey.
We usually go through the following steps when helping organizations along this journey.
You must see to believe
The first step into creating a story is to create a synopsis based on your own data. Let us create a short story and show you a summary of the functionality delivered by the tools. Call this step a pilot or test but the main thing here is for you to see to believe.
This step usually takes one or two weeks depending on the scope and the data available.
We show how the tools may comply your requirements of
The first chapters of your story!
Setting up the journey
You decided that you want to create stories. What now?
If you are buying BI-as-a-service, we agree on the scope of one or two sprints that will be conducted as a traditional development project - don't worry we have fixed prices per month so you will always be in control. When the project finishes we enter "maintenance mode" where you only pay per user - We will take care of everything - license costs, errors, on-boarding of new users and changes on current data and reports.
If you want to have your BI-competence in-house we help you with the "infrastructure" to enable the storytelling and we guide you in the licensing purchase.
Example of activities:
Never ending story...
It's not a project
BI is not a project it's a journey. This means that you have continuous requirements coming in from your business and you need to have a process to handle those. You see, your stories will give your organization new ideas all the time that are impossible to predict and when you give them even more stories they will get even more ideas!
You will come aware of that you have different kind of requirements; from those who analyze the business in different ways - Analysis - and from process owners who wants to follow up KPI's - Reporting.
If you're buying "BI-as-a-service" we will take care of the new data ingestion into the service in a new implementation project. We agree on a scope for one or two sprints, add the new data and models/reports, and then go back to maintenance mode.
If you're not buying "BI-as-a-service" it is also important that you have an organization not only that maintains the platform but also the data ingested and presented.
At this point we focus on:
Optimizing management of platform.
Setting up and optimizing the requirements process.
Establishing best practices.
Establishing or growing the center of internal BI experts for data governance.
Setting up a maintenance organization.
