Data has replaced oil as the most valuable commodity in the world. Decisions made solely on expert judgment have become considerably stronger as data has allowed for better informed and real-time decision-making. Thanks to data, decisions related to portfolio planning, asset management, maintenance, and consumer purchasing are now much easier.
Businesses have grown, improved efficiency, and changed their culture by becoming more data-driven and leveraging Business Intelligence tools. Yet, many companies are still a long way from reaching their full potential. Data accessibility, governance, and visualization are significant factors that challenge how data-driven companies are. By helping clients become more innovative—implementing process improvement measures to ensure data is captured, stored, and analyzed correctly—we’ve found Microsoft Power BI is far more insightful regarding data visualization.

Not only do these metrics help drive productivity, but they keep resources accountable by providing management the necessary oversight.
Milestone Attainment Dashboard
To provide a portfolio-level view on specific Primavera P6 or Microsoft Project schedule milestone attainments. Dashboards highlight milestones at risk of impacting critical path or not meeting baseline deliverable dates. This allows for proper risk mitigation and ensures proactive measures are taken for unforeseen schedule delays. Insight also indirectly improved management and usage of project specific risk registers.
GIS Mapping Dashboard
To geographically display utility assets within a portfolio and their relevant properties. Dashboard visualizes transmission and distribution lines based on regions, priority, and class designations. Built in functionality allows for birds-eye view of surrounding areas to highlight vegetation, roads, and lands for proper risk management.
To compare budget, forecast, and actuals of a utility capital portfolio down to an individual project level. Dashboards provide granular detail by giving insights on cost variances for projects per project manager and project cost analyst. These dashboards are generally used by financial planning departments to track capital project costs.
