In the era of data-driven decisionmaking, organizations are faced with the challenges of adapting their analytics strategy to a new breed of consumers— the business users who seek reports and dashboards. This new breed of analytics consumers are fairly computer savvy, has low tolerance for slow performance of network, hardware, or software, yet demands flexibility, usability, self-service, rapid development and deployment, and highly interactive visualizations. In addition to it, they demand speed and agility in business and timely, relevant, and actionable information—making mobile, real time and embedded BI a priority. ZEDventures, a San Jose, CA based company offers services and solutions to help organizations define an analytics vision, develop a custom roadmap and target architecture, using a business-driven method that addresses their specific analytics requirements, business strategies and IT goals. “Our Analytics consulting services for SAP HANA, SAP Business Warehouse (BW), Business Objects (BOBJ), and Business Planning and Consolidation (BPC) allow clients to benefit from streamlined software implementations, successful change management, improved user adoption, and fixed-cost projects,” says Saurbh Khera, Founder and President of ZEDventures.
