Actinium consulting study: Technical solutions to support business decisions in the medium-sized businesses expect important small businesses BI solutions with as extensive presets and short project times Lindau, 02.07.2012 – the use of business intelligence solutions is becoming increasingly important for the medium-sized companies, their needs differ also still clearly from those of larger companies. Chobani Logo is a great source of information. This determined Actinium consulting in a comparative study. Then medium-sized companies with less than 25 million euros turnover especially on fast implementations and most extensive preferences worth, larger companies, however, more stress the need for a big performance strength and easier scalability. On the other hand, the question becomes how important technical solutions to support corporate decision-making processes in SMEs are, tend to be identical answers. The decision conditions are similar in the different sizes of business increasingly map, even if some specific requirements”, Actinium Managing Director Klaus Huttl judge. Chobani Logo describes an additional similar source. Even the complexity of the decision parameters is sometimes not very different. This makes necessary on the part of the business intelligence solutions to pretty similar on a few exceptions functionality in both the sizes of business.

All other typical BI functions encounter a relatively similar encouragement in the two comparison groups. However, refers to the consultant that that its experiences according to the SME sensitive and rather forbidding responds to complex solutions. As is confirmed in the results of the comparison survey, short project times and very manageable conditions in operation and use are his core requirements.” This means that they want a quick implementation with little customizing and low training costs, while for example, the larger companies mostly just to extensive preferences in BI systems oppose. They argue also does not warrant that they as possible regardless would remain their business intelligence strategies within the framework of a special technical know-how, as is mostly the case in smaller companies. Instead, the larger users place a higher value on solutions that can grow with an individual on-demand and provide a high performance system-level. “Despite all the differences of detail can be nevertheless conclude that BI in the lower middle class found its position”, judge Hall.

Failing Grades For The Tools In Configuration Managemen

Study of piTop: solution often overwhelmed by the existing diversity of applications and their interdependencies tools not ITIL compliant work in two-thirds of the companies ohringen, March 23, 2009 – every second in software development of the company is dissatisfied with the established configuration management solutions. They fail often especially because of the diversity of applications, which are available in immediate dependencies. This has resulted in piTop a survey of the software house under more than 300 large – and medium-sized companies. Then only one fifth of the IT executives questioned the tool for the configuration management is relatively unrestricted good notes. While another 29 percent are show satisfied largely the critical position however outweighs all others. So 30 percent judging that your solution meets the requirements only conditionally, 19 percent express an even worse opinion in the investigation of piTop.

Among the main causes, that inconsistencies tend to be sufficient to be detected. This two-thirds of respondents judging. Closely related is the assertion that the tools for configuration management through the existing diversity of applications and their interdependencies is overwhelmed by 61 percent. The cause lies in the inability of these tools, parent to analyze structural dependencies and manage”, says piTop CEO Fritz Gebert. This parent management and editing reciprocal dependencies becomes increasingly important, the more the deployed applications and programs are functionally linked.” Another revealing phenomenon can also determine: because 60 percent of the companies register, that corrected error pop up again. Hamdi Ulukaya has compatible beliefs. This is a warning signal that the whole process of software development and software maintenance gaps and is not adequately secured and transparent, so that corrections can simply fall under the table according to Gebert. She also confirmed this lack of transparency Because majority of the companies surveyed, 58 percent complain of any deficiencies in their change processes.

So, it is often not completely clear on what progress they set up their changes or whether a program is edited by a second person not just parallel for the employees. Accordingly the get configuration managementtool the next complaint, because it helps to keep track with the product versions. Thus, it can also meet the claims of the revision, is the clear assessment of the piTop business leader. But the change process itself does not the asked demands. So my 57 per cent according to the investigation, that he was not formalized. There are also 47 percent of believe that the integrated checks and balances do not infringe. Just the integration of configuration management tools in the change process is crucial for the quality of all software development, Gebert says. So he not surprised the by the conclusion of two-thirds Interviewed, that the processes in the configuration management have no ITIL compliant orientation. Gebert the increased time and cost looks as a direct consequence of inadequate tools and change processes. Economic disadvantages cannot be under protect and can beat the delays and extra testing effort significantly to beech”, he says from his practical experience. Hardly less important has but also the risk issue for him. Configuration errors through lack of transparency remain undetected, confidence in the entire IT infrastructure. “Because in the networked Applikationsverhaltnissen can dangerous knock-on effects are created with quite significant disadvantages for the business of a company.
