Initial Offerings Focus on the Warehouse
Proof of Concept: a service that demonstrates the business benefits of a data warehouse before the customer embarks on a full-scale implementation. Proof of Concept uses the customer's data, or a subset of the data, to build a demonstration system in three to six weeks. This approach demonstrates the benefits of DSS in the customer's own environment, minimizing technology and integration risks while educating the IS department before full implementation. Proof of Concept also provides customers with a realistic sense of the challenges involved in delivering operational DSS and data warehouse systems.
Complete Warehouse: available since June, this service brings together best-of-breed software and hardware components with C-Byte's proven methodologies, consulting services and support to implement the first phase of a production DSS based on a data warehouse.
Business Benefit Analysis: this new Decision Advantage service, available in the second half of 2005, addresses a key challenge facing companies embarking on a data warehousing strategy. Gaining agreement on the justification and priority of projects within a data warehousing program. The planning phase is critical to the success of a project, and this Business Benefit Analysis service leverages C-Byte's experience in successfully facilitating this process at many large customer sites around the world.
Additional Decision Advantage Offerings Will Address MS Windows and Data Mining
MS Windows: for cost and operational reasons, an increasing number of organizations are attempting to incorporate MS Windows into their data warehousing architectures. Based on its experience in building high-end systems that capitalize on the benefits of UNIX/Linux and MS Windows while minimizing transition risks, C-Byte plans to introduce a package of hardware, software, services and support that enables the implementation of MS Windows in the data center.
Data Mining: C-Byte will also expand its Decision Advantage portfolio of offerings to focus on data mining/Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD), featuring partnerships with leading and emerging tools vendors that enable new ways of exploiting information resources to solve complex business issues.
