Overview
Proden Technologies Enterprise Services revolves around its flagship product accel<>BI to complement its offering by the way of providing value added services aimed at helping our Customers to achieve rapid return on investment (ROI).
The pillar stones of accel<>BI’s Rapid Business Intelligence Development methodology is based on Build <> Preview<> Extend <> Deploy phases. Our methodology sharply contrasts existing approaches, and even enhances the modern and well accepted Agile approach, by the virtue of the Preview phase. We are strong proponents for a Preview phase once the BI Model is built, so Users have early access to real analytical reports to understand the scope, ensure data accuracy and usefulness of such as solution. As the picture here depicts accel<>BI’s toolset can shrink the timeline during various phases of a BI Project thanks to the rich toolset.


Our enterprise services revolves around accel<>BI to complement our offering by the way of providing value added services aimed at helping our Customers to achieve rapid return on investment (ROI).

Performance Tuning Services


  Regardless of a sound architecture and well thought out Modeling, you still need to tune performance as you approach your User Acceptance (UAT) phase.

One of the key challenges during a BI Implementation even before going live is to gauge the performance of critical reports during peak usage, such as during month end close. This helps the BI Manager to take corrective actions such as fine tuning underperforming reports.

Proden armed with Performance Monitoring and Stress Testing tools built specifically for BI Platforms can identify performance bottlenecks, resolve them using simple to advanced techniques based on the root cause. Some of the complex corrective actions may include design / architectural changes such as creating aggregate tables, creating skinny fact tables or even boosting the Server with more processing and /or memory. As you work iteratively to resolve performance issues across your large BI Model and tens or even hundreds of reports, accel<>BI’s toolset such as Quality Analyzer, StressIT helps you to automate the performance monitoring process and more importantly drastically reduces the timeframe needed to measure and re-measure performance after each corrective actions.
