BI Quality Assurance for Barco

In 2010, Barco decided to embark on a major new BI initiative, introducing a new BI architecture based on new technology standards, this in parallel with an SAP roadmap program to prepare for migration from Baan to SAP. After a BI & PM roadmap exercise by element61, for the initial new project a SQL Server 2008 data warehouse was selected with as ETL layer SAP Business Objects Data Services and as BI front-end environment Business Objects Xi 3.1. The implementation of the initial iteration was awarded to Delaware, in a RFP tender & selection process in which element61 acted as soundboard. element61 was also asked to perform the role of Quality Assurance for this major BI initiative.
