Situation prior to the implementation of the Business Intelligence project
Like many other organizations, all departments within the Ministry manage their own information silos. This fact makes it difficult for the institution to make intelligent decisions with integrated information. MINEDU has different transactional systems to support their operational processes and for this Project we needed a set of dashboards that brought together all the relevant information residing in the transactional systems for it to be used in a unique decision-making process.
What were the main challenges you faced in the implementation of the project?One of the main challenges was to access the information that was in different departments, the officials in charge were not willing to share it. The next hurdle was to design the dashboards for them to serve their decision-making purpose, after that everything went down the hill.
What were the main benefits at the end of the project?The greatest achievement was that the analysts did not have to ask for information anymore, they could serve themselves from the DataMart.
They could use the information to deliver their analyses with precise data with no ambiguity like before.
