SABOC 2014 Sessions: Starting a New BI Implementation with Instant ROI

Date/Time: Thursday, September 24, 8:45am – 9:45am
Speaker: David Behr, USPI

Room Name: Web Intelligence

Traditionally, to get SAP BusinessObjects business intelligence (BI) solutions up and running within an organization was a very costly and timely endeavor, involving building out a Data Warehouse and purchasing a BI software suite to deliver the data. While this still may be the case today, there are ways to build out valuable business intelligence applications at a fraction of the traditional cost and time. This session will highlight and demonstrate how United Surgical Partners International (USPI) built out business intelligence capabilities along with a Data Warehouse from scratch, and delivered reporting, dashboards, and self-service analytics corporate-wide in under six months at a quarter of the expected cost. Using a combination of SAP BusinessObjects tools combined in an OEM bundle, USPI has been able to fast-track business intelligence and have attained an instant ROI. One of the key highlights is a Financial Profit and Loss dashboard with best practice recommendations which will be demonstrated.

  • Learn how to design and deliver effective BI solutions rapidly
