DataSight / Cronos Public started their collaboration with FedNot November 2020 from the request to assess the reporting needs between FedNot and its partners/ecosystem (internal and external). This has grown towards a strong partnership where DataSight / Cronos Public is the main advisor concerning the entire Data Platform and all reporting use cases on top of this.
Google Big Query + Looker
To facilitate the data-driven way of working, FedNot has chosen to work with Google technology. All data sources are integrated on the GCP platform : real-time data pipelines are moved into a dimensional model serving the self-service layer as well as business dashboards. A differentiator in this decision is the seamless cloud based integration of front-end (Looker) and back-end (BigQuery) on one hand, but most of all the centrally governed layer approach of Looker, providing all functional and technical features to support all defined use cases.
- A portal for client reports & dashboards
- Centralized business logic layer
- governed by BI team / IT
- qualitative “always on” for business
- Monitoring usage / adoption
- Cloud native product of Google
- Designed to share data inside & outside the organization
The data-driven future
The idea is to turn around the “on request” way of working between business and BI team towards a “always on” way of working, introducing a well governed self-service layer next to dynamic dashboards and scheduled reports. From there all users can supply themselves with answers to business questions, as well as creating strategic insights.
