Our consulting team possesses a wealth of experience in implementing Business Intelligence (BI) and data warehousing solutions.

The consultants who performed by far
the best were the specialist business
intelligence/Olap consulting firms; much
the worst were the large, general-purpose
consulting firms, including the big five.
The big firms were reported to cost more,
took longer and apparently delivered less  
successful projects' (Nigel Pendse, 2003).

Whether your requirements are large or
small, utilising consultants from Xanda
Consulting will have a productive impact
upon your project.

'Many sites did all the implementation work in-house, but they had a lower success rate than sites that also used some external help, even when spending only a modest £10,000 on third-party consulting' (Nigel Pendse, 2003).

Regardless of the size of the project or phase, Xanda Consulting is happy to provide consultants for adhoc tasks such as:

  • feasibility studies,
  • requirements gathering,
  • the installation and configuration of business intelligence products,
  • performance tuning,
  • product upgrades,
  • proof of concept,
  • report writing phases, and
  • training.
Our project success is aided by the use of our own bespoke      
methodology facilitating project management and budgetary
controls. A brief outline is found below.
