Who are we doing this for?
ABRSM, the exam board of the Royal Schools of Music, wanted better business intelligence reporting to support their growing organisation. The previous static fact book relied on cumbersome manual processes, lacked the ability to drill in to the data and so was not relied upon.
We helped ABRSM to achieve their objective by constructing an online reporting solution. This provided targeted data insights on a daily basis. The online suite was designed to allow for a more interactive experience for the business by providing content already found in the fact book and new insights via standard reporting and dashboards.
Northdoor implemented a flexible business intelligence system based on Microsoft SQL Server 2008. The solution was one of the largest-scale SQL Server 2008 replication projects in Europe and consolidates data from all of Medivet’s practices into once central repository. Each Medivet branch is still able to capture and store data on its own server, but the information is replicated on a cluster of central servers.
NHS Trust. Northdoor worked closely with an NHS Trust who were facing the prospect of substantially increased SQL server licensing costs of over £3m in the next financial year due to changes to the licensing mode, along with the complexities of support multiple SQL Server versions. Northdoor advised on and implemented a platform move to SQL Server 2014 which provided a highly availably solution integrated with the Microsoft Azure cloud.
The benefits to the client were annual license savings of £400k per annum, along with lower ongoing support effort and enhanced availability and disaster recovery capability.
