DataMart Storyboard: Simplify and Speed Up Access to the Reporting Data for Faster Decision Making
May 13, 2021
For business organizations, extracting data from multiple sources is the key to making result-oriented project decisions. PMO directors are keen on data reporting and analytics from supported data sources such as Office 365 Planner, Microsoft Project Server, and Microsoft Project Online. When data from these sources are extracted into a complete storyboard, they assist PPM administrators in tracking project activities based on project portfolio reporting and data visualization.
However, getting the correct data for informed decision-making is not always easy. The data needs to be extracted from numerous sources to a data warehouse, which isn’t an easy task for any PPM administrator or PMO. They must either use SQL Server Service Integration (SSS) or OData packages. Now, that’s where it becomes even more frustrating. SSIS is more complicated to develop and requires huge memory volume. OData is highly vulnerable and insecure due to its limitation to URL-based setup. Besides, the communicated data still needs to be available on a complete storyboard for easy data access and project portfolio reporting. That leads to the search for a lasting and efficient solution that delivers results—FluentPro DataMart.
How FluentPro DataMart Simplifies and Grants Access to Reporting Data for Improved Decision Making
The FluentPro DataMart is designed purely for data extraction to assist those in management who understand the importance of the report. It extracts the data to an SQL Server database under the most straightforward process. It doesn’t use SSIS or OData packages, which eliminates much of the technicality it would otherwise have required with those tools. The tool uses a “no special configuration” design and setup to capture and extract the data from dozens of sources to your target warehouse. The absence of technicalities means less time spent on moving data, which, in turn, speeds up the decision-making process across management chains and enhances business ROI.
