The SQL Server Analysis Services Assessment is a consulting service that can be delivered remotely, with no travel expenses. Because an assessment requires us to test different solutions, we will need to download your data (or a significant part of it) on our servers. All of your data will be permanently deleted as soon as the project is finished and we are open to sign an NDA to guarantee that your data is safe with us.
Working remotely, we do a first conference call with you to set the expectations. Then, we work offline for a while until we have a clear insight of the solution status, keeping in touch via email.
The SSAS Assessment is conducted by one of our SSAS Maestros and the whole team reviews the documentation before delivery and final discussion in a follow up conference call.
If you need our physical presence on your site, we come to your office and provide the same level of consulting done remotely. This kind of assessment has a higher cost due to travel and expenses, but it permits more interactivity. We advise you let one of your technical staff sit in on the assessment, so that they can learn on the job and discuss with us about their needs.
The assessment is conducted by one of our SSAS Maestros and the whole team reviews the documentation before delivery and final discussion, within some days after the end of the on-site meetings.
Standard assessment is focused on the Analysis Services (SSAS) part of a Business Intelligence solution.
We know that a BI solution is much more complex and, sometimes, customers ask us to verify the full ETL pipeline, the Data Warehouse (DWH) architecture, the security settings, and the presence of bottlenecks anywhere in the pipeline.
If this is your case, then you need a Corporate Assessment.
Delivering this consulting service we follow the complete data flow, starting from the OLTP databases up to the final cube structure, verifying that all the single steps are designed and perform in an optimal way. Each single step is deeply analyzed and double checked to verify that it follows all of the best practices. Corporate assessment is a complex project: we indicate a starting price, which is subject to further evaluation, depending on many parameters.
