ESS Business Intelligence Center of Excellence (BI CoE)
ESS Business Intelligence Center of Excellence (BI CoE), is a unique offering designed to optimize the productivity of Business Analytics deployments in the enterprise through a cross-functional, shared services structure. By addressing operational needs and support and enhancement functions, the new managed service enables companies to refocus critical resources on higher-order tasks and slash costs.

Our new BI CoE offering is designed to help companies re-prioritize their IT resource allocation, while ensuring that support and enhancement of the existing implementation continues with a much matured set of automated tools and well proven methodologies along with team of top-tier BI practitioners. This helps them with a very reliable tool based and repeatable process driven CoE while cutting costs almost immediately and focusing important in-house resources where they’re most needed.
Our BI CoE operation can provide ongoing production support and maintenance of BI implementation. Tasks performed by the BI CoE include 1) Production Support: Data Fixes, Ongoing Support, Scheduling, Monitoring and Admin Activities 2) Enhancements: Modification to existing reporting systems 3) Maintenance: Planned Recycling Refresh and Synchronizing environments.
ESS has effectively implemented support models for BI implementations for large enterprises using its own targeted methodology, tools and IP. These services are backed by more than three million hours of Business Intelligence experience and architectural expertise gathered over more than a decade.
