Saama Launches Business Intelligence Center of Excellence (BI CoE)

New offering focusing on support and enhancement uses extensive, direct experience, targeted methodology and IP/tools to cut costs

Campbell, CA, December 04, 2011: Saama Technologies Inc. today announced the launch of the Business Intelligence Center of Excellence (BI CoE), 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.

“Most major BI deployments involve a high level of cost and complexity, and supporting them inevitably drains resources from other critical business functions,” said Suresh Katta, CEO of Saama. “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.”

Saama’s BI CoE operation can provide ongoing production support and maintenance of BI implementation. Tasks performed by the Saama 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.
