FactFusion's team has decades of experience in the field of business intelligence, performance management and reporting and analytics. We've worked with
customers in a wide range of industries implementing decision support systems from A to Z. The secret to our success lies in our FactFusion implementation
methodology that uses best practices from ERP, extreme visualization and simulation and paradigm shifting approaches to data provisioning and business content
The data warehouse is one of the most common and most maligned architectures in place today. We believe fundamentally in the need to have stable, secure,
repeatable, auditable and scalable data infrastructures. The convergence of in memory, commoditized hardware and memory, and new DBMS structures make
more possible than ever before. The heavy lifting remains essentially the same since we began building data warehouses back in the 1980’s. What has changed
is the volume and character of the data. New challenges exist that make it difficult and sometimes expensive to meet the needs of the business. We are specialists
in leveraging the opportunities that result from the Hardware, Software, & Structure convergence.

Architecture Planning & Design
FactFusion will help create an architecture that will meet the specific and unique needs of your organization. Proper architectural planning and design requires a
working knowledge of the key technology platforms in your ecosystem. FactFusion uses our unique and innovative Decomposition Architecture Framework to
organize the complex and intricate technology, product, business process and data architecture that exists in most every company.
Right Choice Software Selection
FactFusion's Software Selection can help you balance the pros and cons of integrating new or updated technology within your company. Our team will create a
model to help you determine how a technology will address your needs most effectively in your ecosystem. Our selection process utilizes use-case analysis,
simulation and real world demos to make sure everyone can visualize how the software will be used in real life. Knowing which software options to choose and
how they will coexist in your ecosystem is a more subtle but extremely important criterion for proper selection. With so many very large mega vendors and some
highly complex and modular product offerings, choosing the right components in the stack of technology is critical to success.
Building business intelligence and information management capabilities can be a daunting task. Many organizations have tried and failed in delivering real value to
the business. In our experience, most implementations are technically sound but miss the mark in meeting the needs of the businesses they serve. Our approach
is fundamentally different and embraces the notion that simulation, modeling and testing are the path to developing real requirements BEFORE fully engineered
systems get built. This approach is based on many years of observation and experience with real business people and real BI and Data Warehouse projects. How
many times has “the business” said to IT, “just give me the data and I will do it myself!”?
When it comes to business intelligence, the quality of the data matters. In too many cases though, IT struggles to get business owners to take control and
accountability for the data in the company’s systems. We use innovative tools and techniques for visualizing information IN CONTEXT to allow the business process
owners to engage with the data in a way they have not been able to do using traditional methods.
FactFusion can help make sure your BI or DW project delivers results to the business. Our experienced team will evaluate your project top to bottom (architecture
and process) to determine whether your efforts will achieve your goals and help you to manage future risks.
With the advent of mega-vendors and consolidation of the software industry, it has become increasing difficult to negotiate effectively. These things don’t happen on
their own…effective negotiation and outcome requires inside knowledge of how technology companies operate. Our experts are veterans of some of the largest
technology companies in the world and have negotiated some extremely difficult contracts.
